Item description for Revelation Unsealed: A Narrative Critical Approach to John's Apocalypse (Biblical Interpretation Series, V. 32) by James L. Resseguie...
This commentary systematically examines John's Apocalypse from a narrative critical perspective. Following an introduction to narrative criticism, the volume focuses on point of view, setting, rhetoric, character and plot in the Book of Revelation. The rhetorical and symbolic significance of numerals are discussed at length as are the multifaceted characters in the book such as demonic animals (locust, beasts, dragon, birds) and apocalyptic animals (lamb, four living creatures). The symbolic significance of topographical, architectural, agricultural and other settings is also emphasized. The final chapter of the text is a summary of some of the major theological themes of Revelation.
