Item description for Revelation (WBC) (Westminster Bible Companion) by Catherine Gonzalez & Justo Gonzalez...
Overview Few books of the Bible have had a reversal of fortune like that of Revelation. Written to offer comfort, to aid those trying to understand their faith, and to be read aloud in church, Revelation is viewed by many readers today as shrouded in mystery and rife with elusive symbolism. Yet, as Catherine and Justo Gonzalez point out, we are not as far from the situation about which John writes as we might think. Although we may not face daily challenges of life and death, injustice and idolatry are rampant in our society. And Revelation's dire warnings against those who would rather be comfortable or successful than faithful is of great relevance in our lives today.
Originally written to be read aloud in church and to offer comfort and hope to those struggling to be faithful in troubling times, Revelation sparks great interest with its mysterious symbols of numbers and beasts. Here, two foremost historians offer readers a highly accessible commentary perfect for Bible study leaders.
Books in the Westminster Bible Companion series assist laity in their study of the Bible as a guide to Christian faith and practice. Each volume explains the biblical book in its original historical context and explores its significance for faithful living today. These books are ideal for individual study and for Bible study classes and groups.

A good place to start Jul 24, 2006
This book gives a good overview of Revelation. It is a good place to start for the beginner or for someone wanting an overall picture as a jumping off point to deeper study. I am also making use of several of the references in the back. ex. Boring, M. Eugene
