Item description for Four Views On The Book Of Revelation (Counterpoints) by Stanley N. Gundry, C. Marvin Pate & Kenneth L. Gentry Jr...

Four Views on the Book of Revelation are presented, critiqued, and defended: preterist, idealist, and the classical dispensationalist and progressive dispensationalist forms of the futurist approach.

Publishers Description
Of all the books of the Bible, few are as fascinating or as bewildering as Revelation. Its images grip the imagination: four grim horsemen, the Antichrist, the ten-horned beast, the ultimate battle at Armageddon, and, of course, 666, the 'mark of the beast, ' variously interpreted to signify everything from Hitler and Krushchev to credit cards and the Internet.Is the book of Revelation a blueprint for the future that needs decoding if we want to understand current events? Is it a book of powerful imagery, with warnings and promises for the church throughout the ages? Or is it essentially an imaginative depiction of historical events in the first century? Four Views on the Book of Revelation explores the four main views in which Revelation is understood: preterist, idealist, classical dispensationalist futurist, and progressive dispensationalist. The interactive Counterpoints forum allows each author not only to present his view, but also to offer brief commentary on other views presented. This evenhanded approach is ideal for comparing and contrasting stances in order to form a personal conclusion about the interpretation and meaning of Revelation.The Counterpoints series provides a forum for comparison and critique of different views on issues important to Christians. Counterpoints books address two categories: Church Life and Bible and Theology. Complete your library with other books in the Counterpoints series.

Reviews - What do customers think about Four Views On The Book Of Revelation?

Four Views  Mar 23, 2007
Needed as textbook for class. Good presentation of current approaches to the Book of Revelation.
Summary  Jan 3, 2007
This book offers a good summary of the various views of the book of Revelation. It is a very good starting point for detailed research
"Will do more to convince you of what you already believe than change your mind..."  Dec 31, 2005

The author definitely tends toward the futurist view, but he neither he nor I should have to apologize for that. It is the most scriptural view.

The views are presented with thorough research behind them, and presented fairly. Those enjoying this book most will be those who espouse the futurist position, and would like some ammunition against other views.

For a very simple and much less involved commentary on Revelation, may I suggest one written especially for TEENS and NEW BELIEVERS: "Dragons, Grasshoppers & Frogs!" (ISBN: 059536668). This is the most practical book I've ever seen on Revelation--a book that few relate to everyday life.

All in all, this book will do more to convince you of what you already believe on the Second Coming rather than change your mind on any of it.
Comparing it with other books on the subject.  Apr 26, 2005
Your book was interesting, and it did make me think about the things you have written. However, I suguest you take some time and read another book on this subject. It was written by a Pastor. That book is called A Study Through The Great Book of REVELATION. It was published by Publish America. The ISBN is 1-4137-2154-0. My Sunday school class has been using that book and my Pastor has indicated that it seems to show us where we are in God's time schedule. I believe that those two books combined would have made a greater series than the one being shown by NBC.
Counterpoint Series  Nov 15, 2004
I'm going to apply this commentary for the entire Counterpoint Series published by Zondervan Publishing Company. My compliments to that company for creating this series. I initially purchased "Four Views on the Book of Revelation" but soon realized it was only one in a series. I got so much out of that volume, that I decided to purchase the entire set to study and keep for reference. My spiritual growth has been remarkable as a result. Seminary students and professionals would probably enjoy this series, which seems geared for them. But this series is also excellent for those college-educated laypeople who feel inclined to enhance their understanding of Christian theology. That is, with one caveat: Buy a decent theological dictionary to refer to at first. It probably won't get used much after about the third book you choose to read, but initially you will be need it to be confident of some of the terms used among advanced theologians. Then, the Counterpoint series will give you a full understanding of many different concepts and concerns of the Christian faith which have been applicable from early on until the present. I've learned a lot, and the only way I think I could do better is if I were enrolled in Seminary. A list of all the titles I am aware of from this series is:

Are Miraculous Gifts for Today?
Five Views on Law and Gospel
Five Views on Sanctification
Four Views on Hell
Four Views on Salvation in a Pluralistic World
Four Views on the Book of Revelation
Three Views on Creation and Evolution
Three Views on the Millennium and Beyond
Three Views on the Rapture
Two Views on Women in Ministry
