Item description for Coming Soon: Unlocking the Book of Revelation and Applying Its Lessons Today by Michael Barber...

In his latest book, Michael Barber takes a detailed look at the book of Revelation and its rich tapestry of prophecy, history, and biblical allusion. Verse by verse, Coming Soon unravels the hidden threads of meaning in the Book of Revelation, all the while celebrating this beautiful and glorious vision of God.

Publishers Description
"Coming Soon" is a verse by verse commentary on the Book of Revelation using the Revised Standard Version: Catholic Edition of the Bible. Barber provides a Catholic interpretation, which sees the liturgical background of this book of Scripture?a perspective missing in many Protestant commentaries. In "Coming Soon," Michael Barber cuts through the confusion and reveals the rich tapestry of prophecy, history, and biblical allusion found in this last book of the Bible. Barber explores the profound link between the Mass celebrated here on earth and the eternal reality of heaven, demonstrating that the Apocalypse reveals truth that has practical implications for today and points to a firm hope in tomorrow.

Sir Michael Barber is the Founding Director of the US Education Delivery Institute, which is designed explicitly tohelp U.S. state education systems strengthen their capacity to deliver results. The US Education Delivery Institute is unique among U.S. nonprofits in that it focuses on exclusively on how to get things done, rather than what to do. Barber is an Expert Partner in McKinsey and Company s Global Public Sector Practice and head of its Global Education Practice. He works on major challenges of performance, organization, and reform in government and the public services, especially education, around the world. He is coauthor of the widely read international benchmarking study How the World s Best Performing School Systems Come Out on Top (Barber & Mourshed, 2007). Prior to joining McKinsey, Barber was (from 2001) Chief Adviser on Delivery to the British prime minister, Tony Blair. As head of the Prime Minister s Delivery Unit, he was responsible for the oversight of implementation of the prime minister s priority programs in health, education, transport, policing, the criminal justice system, and asylum/immigration. The approach to delivery he developed is widely seen as constructive and innovative and has been described by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) as the frontier of performance management in government. His (2008) book about this experience Instruction to Deliver: Fighting to Reform Britain s Public Services was described by the Financial Times as one of the best books written on British government for many years (Bogdanor, 2007, para. 12) and has been read by political leaders on five continents. Between 1997 and 2001, Barber was Chief Adviser to the Secretary of State for Education on School Standards. Prior to joining government, he was a professor at the Institute of Education, University of London. His other major publications include The Learning Game: Arguments for an Education Revolution (1997), How to Do the Impossible: A Guide for Politicians With a Passion for Education (1997), and The Virtue of Accountability (Boston University 2005). His advice on public policy, especially education, has been sought by governments in over 20 countries, including Australia, the USA, Russia, Estonia, Chile, and Hong Kong, and by major international organizations, including the Organization of Economic Co-Operation and Development, The World Bank, and the IMF. He is an Honorary Doctor at the Universities of Exeter, Nottingham, Trent, and Wolverhampton and a Visiting Professor at the Higher School of Economics in Moscow, and the Institute of Education, University of London.

Reviews - What do customers think about Coming Soon: Unlocking the Book of Revelation and Applying Its Lessons Today?

Excellent study of the book of Revelation!  Apr 20, 2008
My small group is currently about half-way through this book, and we are all enjoying it very much! Michael Barber does a great job going through what can be a confusing,frightening and often misunderstood book. A great study for either small groups or individuals wanting to learn more about St. John's Revelation.
Coming Soon  May 15, 2007
The book is an excellent study of the book of revelations. It is direct and to the point. It is easy to read and understand. My only concern would be that the study questions are not as thought provoking as I like in a bible study.
Great Catholic prospective   Jan 6, 2007
As a Catholic Christian you only hear the Christian prospective on the "end times, rapture, mark of the beast, the whore of Babylon, the four horsemen (not the wrestlers)...etc". Catholic theologian Michael Barber has done an excellent job explaining what each on of these (and more) mean along with there implications in our life time. I highly recommend this book along with Dr. Scott Hahn's Lamb Supper. CATHOLICS: "ALWAYS BE READY TO GIVE AN EXPLANATION TO ANYONE WHO ASKS YOU FOR A REASON FOR YOUR HOPE ...
1 Peter 3:15-17
Finally a consistent and logical commentary on the Apocalypse  Apr 26, 2006
The author gives a consistent commentary on the literal meaning of Revelation and a good explanation of the spirtual senses (i.e the loving moral view, a faithful analogical/typological view and a hopeful anagogical view.) Particular care for the liturgical elements in the book and their relation with the Divine Liturgy (the Roman Rite Mass) is developed and applied, showing the biblical basis for the New Testament Church's Liturgy.

My only criticism of this book is that Mr. Barber sometimes doesn't develope the relationship between some things as strongly as I think the text indicates. For exmaple the releationship between Jerusalem and Rome in Revelation 17 is connected much stronger in my view than in Michael's.
