Item description for The Spirit of the Book of Revelation (Journal of Pentecostal Theology) by Robert Waddell...
Overview The investigation centres on the role of the Spirit in Revelation, which the author considers is best defined as the Spirit of Prophecy. A survey of scholarship on the pneumatology of the Apocalypse is followed by a study of intertextual connections. The author's own religious context within Pentecostalism then informs a possible hermeneutic that is faithful to the ethos of the movement. Biblical and literary studies are situated within the context of a Pentecostal community as attention is paid to the prophecy concerning the temple and the witnesses in Rev 11. This key passage is shown to form the theological as well as the literary centre of the Spirit's role in Revelation.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Spirit of the Book of Revelation (Journal of Pentecostal Theology)?
Purchased because it was a requirement only. Nov 21, 2007
Hard to follow, I believe from "skimming" the book, the author holds the view the angel in Revelation is the Holy Spirit. Do I agree, no, but I respect the fact that he has done much more research than me. Once again only purchased because it was required reading. Like most scholars, the author views interpeting Revelation literally as too simple. Instead like many others, resorts to speculation.
