The definitive study of Revelation  Jul 8, 2006
Pr. Brighton says his Revelation was 25 years in the thinking, praying, researching, and writing. The work reflects his deep thought and knowledge of the Koine grammar, textual critical issues, and the scholarly field which is thick with commentaries, not all of them good.

In preparing my own MA thesis, I used Pr. Brighton's text and sought to prove that his grammatical points and analysis were either a bit off or wrong; this I did in order to be sure that his work would be an unimpeachable source. His Revelation stood up to intense grammatical and analytical scrutiny. The Revelation narrative, he writes, is recapitulative. The same event is recounted through different scenarios, and they all lead to the Second Coming.

This is a book that any serious scholar of The Revelation must have on his bookshelf. Moreover, it is tremendously accessible to people lacking the academic background in the Koine and textual criticism.

As for Roger Ph Drews who wrote thus: "Even though "martus" a "witness" appears in 1:5, the significance of a martyr, one who will die for his testimony, is apparently not significant," either he has not read The Revelation of Jesus Christ, either in the Koine or the English, or he did not understand what he read. For, the text of Rev 1:5 reads as follows: "kai apo Ihsouv Cristouv, o martuß, o pistoß, o prwtotokoß twn nekrwn." Translated, this means: "and from Jesus Christ (who gave John the Revelation which the first century church heard), the martyr, the faithful, the first-born of the dead." In other words, 'martus' is in apposition to 'Jesus Christ' and therefore specifies Christ Himself. Since the entire Revelation is Christ and His Second Coming, it is absurd to claim as Roger Ph Drews does that: "Even though "martus" a "witness" appears in 1:5, the significance of a martyr, one who will die for his testimony, is apparently not significant." Apart from this, though Drews tosses in some of the code words of NT scholarship ('textual variances,' for instance), his ignorance of the field, Revelation itself, and Brighton's text is clear.

No doubt one can make valid criticisms of Brighton's book. However, Drews's is not one of them.
The definative Amillennialist Revelation Commentary  May 26, 2004
In the United States today, the dominant view among Christians concerning the end-times is something very similar to the "Left Behind" scenario. This commentary on Revalation gives a completely different, centuries-old amillennialist interpretation of one of the most difficult books of the Bible.

Brighton is a professor emeritus at Concordia Seminary in Saint Louis (and one of the nicest people--student, prof. or other--that I've met on campus) and has an extrodinarily high reputation in the New Testament department. His commentary is based on the Koine Greek, which is translated into English. Any awkward translations of unique word usage is explained to the point that, by the end of the book, one is able to see Semetisms in John's hasty writing.

As far as the text goes, Brighton masterfully lays out his amillenialist view: that the seven seals, trumpets, etc. all introduce the same period of time (not following strict chronology) and that these visions all represent what is happening in the church today. Symbols are clearly explained and frequent reminders are provided so that the reader doesn't get confused trying to keep them all straight.

For many people, the thought of the end of the world is quite frightening. Brighton's Revelation commentary is Christ-centered and has a clear focus on the Good News of life eternally with Christ in heaven. Instead of feeling fearful as I read eschatological prophesy, I found myself longing for Christ's return. Highly recommended.

Sound exegesis, great study aid  Jul 23, 2002
Dr. Brighton does a wonderful job of presenting an interpretation of Revelation from an amillenialist viewpoint. He clears up many of the controversies surrounding the book of Revelation with careful exegesis of the text and proper matrixing of related Scripture. Pastors, seminary students, and laypeople alike will find this book to be very useful in their own study of Revelation.
Revelation (Concordia) Commentary by Louis A. Brighton  Nov 11, 2001
It is rare for a biblical commentary to "catch on" so to speak,
but it is evident that this is an exception. It went into a third printing in less than a year. This is the definative
commentary of Revelation for any student of the Bible. I have
not heard of any scholarly detraction of this work from the academic community or from the discerning layman. Dr. Brighton
is Professor Emeritus at Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, MO. I know that he is sought after to lecture on the Book of Revelation both here and abroad and often does so. I gave friends and relatives this book as a gift.
