More About Kevin Perrotta
Most of my writing tries to help ordinary people understand the Bible and read it as God's word for today. In the 1990's I worked as editor of a magazine with a title that matches that intention: God's Word Today. Then, into the 2000's, I wrote and edited a series of short books called Six Weeks with the Bible (from Loyola Press). Each of these is designed for six sessions of reflection and discussion on a part of Scripture (for example, the gospel of Luke) or a theme in Scripture (for example, Finding Christ in Your Marriage--I wrote that one with my wife Louise). Lately I have been working as an editor on a series of books called Catholic Commentary on Sacred Scripture (from Baker Academic Press).
Besides writing and editing, I teach Scripture part time. At present I'm teaching an introduction to the Old Testament in Siena Heights University's program in theological studies for the Catholic diocese of Lansing, Michigan. Also, I'm teaching a course on the gospels at Sacred Heart Seminary in Detroit.
I've led pilgrimages to the Holy Land and am planning to lead another in the fall of 2010.
Church membership: I belong to the Byzantine wing of the Catholic Church.
Family: I have six wonderful children and fifteen absolutely marvelous grandchildren.

Reviews - What do customers think about Revelation: God's Gift of Hope (Catholic Perspectives Series)?
Revelation: not what you may have thought, but more. Jan 20, 2007
I have used this book with a parish adult Bible study and recently purchased it for a group of High Schoolers who asked to use it rather than the "for teens" version also available. I cannot comment on the Teenage version but appreciate this Bible study becuase it takes the book of Revelation very seriously, but also cuts through the abundance of misinformation surrounding the Bible's mystical conclusion.
Rooted in thorough sholarship, but thoroughly accessible, this book can help group and individual readers reckon with prophecies that have fascinated and horrified many people ever since they were first written. This Bible study's greatest strength lies in the author's attempt to ground contemporary interpretations of Revelation in the meaning that they book likely had for its earliest hearers.
Revelation : God's Gift of Hope (Catholic Perspective Series Jun 26, 2000
The book of Revelations is an intimidating book. I had struggled through it before and had been left wondering what John was trying to say. Kevin Perrotta's "Revelation God's Gift of Hope" has been a great help in deciphering the symbolic language that John wrote in. The questions at the beginning and the end of each section are especially helpful in tying the reading to our lives today. This is an excellent guide for both individual and group study.
