Item description for Revelation Reclaimed: The Use and Misuse of the Apocalypse by Jon Newton...
Overview The book of Revelation seems very odd to modern readers and has been interpreted in some strange ways over the centuries. In plain English, Jon Newton guides readers through curious interpretations past and present and explains where they go wrong. In particular, the massively influential dispensationalist interpretations of the Left Behind novels and Hal Lindsay are explained and found wanting. But, more than exposing misunderstandings of the book, Newton is concerned to persuade readers that Revelation is profoundly relevant today when interpreted responsibly. In an easy to follow way he explains principles for reading Revelation virtuously. Newton ends with an investigation into the ever-controversial question of the millenium.
