Item description for Message of Revelation: I Saw Heaven Opened (Bible Speaks Today) by Michael Wilcock...

Overview
In his commentary on The Message of Revelation, Michael Wilcock maintains that when God's words, declarations, arguments and reasonings had all been spoken, God gave the church 'a gorgeous picture book'. He lifts the curtain on Revelation's drama in eight scenes, helping our imaginations as well as our minds grasp the key concepts of this fascinating and enigmatic New Testament book.

Publishers Description
What is the book of Revelation? Does it describe in veiled language events of its writer's own day, or is it largely a prophecy of events still to come? Is it a chart of the whole of history from Christ's first coming to his second? Or does it deal chiefly with principles which are always valid in Christian experience? And what is a twentieth-century reader to do with creatures covered with eyes, locusts like horses, seven bowls of wrath, war in heaven, various beasts and a dragon? Michael Wilcock maintains tha when God's words, declarations, arguments and reasonings had all been spoken, God gave the church "a gorgeous picture book." Wilcok lifts the curtain on Revelation's drama in eight scenes, helping our imaginations as well as our minds grasp the key concepts of this fascinating and enigmatic New Testament book.

Reviews - What do customers think about Message of Revelation: I Saw Heaven Opened (Bible Speaks Today)?

the best primer available  Nov 23, 2005
Easily the best short commentary on Revelation. Good for anyone looking for an introduction to Revelation, or a minister looking for something to assist with preaching.

Wilcock takes the "recapitulation" approach--and does good work of making his case. Because the commentary is not intended to be a complete analysis of every verse, many questions go untreated. For those looking for a complete commentary, see Greg Beale's commentary on Revelation. It's the magnum opus of our generation, and it will take several more generations before it's surpassed.
 
Sane, helpful guide to understanding the book of Revelation  May 4, 2004
Michael Wilcock writes helpful guides to understanding the bible. This book is sane and sensible. Wilcock helps us to think about how the book would have related to its original audience, and how it can be relevant to us today.

Wilcock's way of interpreting the book uses the best of the Preterist and Idealist methods.

I highly recommend his book. You will also find Steve Gregg's Revelation: Four Views: A Parallel Commentary an indispensable aid.

 
I've given many copies of this as gifts  Aug 10, 1997
He changed my mind on the millenium. He opened my eyes to a realistic and biblical interpretation and application of Revelation. He presents the material in a fair, warm, and readable style. Absolutely unparalleled for use in groups, by an individual, for preaching, and for teaching. This is the one book I give to students, friends, and inquirers
