Publishers Description If your Bible is open to the Book of Revelation, you need this companion book open at its side. In times of discouragement and depression, the average person likely wouldn't automatically turn to the Book of Revelation as a source of comfort and strength. Yet that's exactly what author James R. Gordon, in Behold the Lamb: The Meaning of Revelation., contends readers are to do.
