Item description for The Book of Revelation (The New International Commentary on the New Testament) by Robert H. Mounce...

In this new edition, now based on the text of the NIV and Nestle-Aland, Mounce has revised and expanded his work to reflect more than twenty additional years of mature thought on Revelation and brings his work up to date with the latest scholarship. Engaging various approaches to interpretation common to apocalyptic literature, Mounce steers a middle course believing this to be the way the ancient text spoke to the first-century churches and the way it still speaks to us today.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Book of Revelation (The New International Commentary on the New Testament)?

book of revelations  Apr 1, 2008
the book is filled with much knowledge about "the book of revelations", I have only gotten about half way thru but it is very knowledgeable on what I wanted to know. the class I am taking is about the bible "revelations" and the minister said it would be a good book to read. has a lot of insite and breaks down each verse. it is over 400 pages long. but worth every penny.
Keeping it simple.  Jun 15, 2007
Having worked through the entire book of Revelation in a 42 sermon series, I find Mounce to be indispensable! Other reviewers are right in saying that he is not as detailed about the historical interpretation of each verse, but that would just indicate that he is more futurist in his understanding, and less a preterist.
Mounce manages to do what so many others have failed to do; to keep the message of the book in the forefront, and not allow it to get lost in the clutter of interminiable squabbling over interpretive details. His work is deep, but not confusing. He deals with the text at hand, and not as much with historical references or the Apocrypha. While these pseudopigraphal references may float the boat of scholars, Mounce keeps his finger in the Revelation text, and so his book is extremely helpful.
Makes deep stuff simple. Very well done.  Mar 21, 2006
As a pastor working on sermons from the Greek text through Revelation, I've found that Mounce's NICNT commentary on Revelation is one of the best ways for me to summarize what I've read in all the other commentaries.

I have to take exception to the previous reviewer regarding Mounce's commentary on Revelation-saying that Mounce doesn't declare himself on issues. I think Mounce writes with clarity...boiling down the sometimes complex arguments of the various views to a few sentences that make sense. It's surprisingly easy to good that you can actually use some of his summaries in the pulpit and not lose the average listener! That is amazing to me. He makes a judgment call, sometimes coming to a different view than most or many other commentators.

For example, on the term ANGELOS (Angel) in Revelation 1:20, 2:1 and the other six churches, Mounce reviews the other positions...and then concludes that the term 'prevailing spirit' may capture the real meaning there. However, many believe that the term here means 'angelic messenger' or a real angel from heaven. I think he missed it on that point, but he knows way more about Greek than I do and I respect his position.

I found that Mounce is not always complete when describing the historical situation for each verse. It's helpful to read other commentaries for background information-they all give nuggets that bring out different aspects of the historical situation. For example, Beale (NIGTC) on Revelation has more information as does Aune on Revelation. Also Osborne (Baker) is helpful too. I have perhaps about ten scholarly works on Revelation. Yet Mounce is easier for a busy pastor to read through than any of these other fine authors...even if he gives less information. (Beale is my number one pick even so). I find myself unwilling to part from my Mounce commentary. What when compared to the heavy hitting commentaries is less information, is still a lot of useful detail for any preaching pastor or bible teacher working through the text of Revelation. Plus he's really easy to understand.

If you are preaching through Revelation, or writing a paper for a course, or even teaching a class on the subject...or a small group discussion, Mounce can help you. When describing the historical context of the seven churches, he sometimes strikes a lyrical cadence that is very useful. I love this commentary! What a rare flower! Get a copy if you can afford it!
A Great Classic, but Mounce won't commit!  Jul 8, 2003
I know that my review will be completely "out of sinc" with most others, but I think there is something about Mounce's book that everyone should know BEFORE they purchase it. I am currently preparing a special study for an advanced class on Revelation. My books on Revelation have multiplied from about 5 to over 30. Almost every leading scholar and serious student lists Mounce's commentary in the top 5 and many either #1 or #2. And Mounce's book is full of information on the many different ways of looking at various issues in Revelation. BUT HE WON'T COMMIT! I have been very frustrated with his book when he just lists the various way of looking at something and then won't say what his view is. That is the reason I got his book -- to know what he thinks. Before you buy this one realize that it is a great book that just won't commit. I'll appologize in advance to those who are offended by my comments. I know that to many saying something negative about Mounce's book on Revelation is like taking a shot at Bounds on Prayer. God bless. Mike
A classic  Apr 30, 2000
I regard the first edition of 1977 as a classic commentary on Revelation. If you already own the first edition it is not really worth upgrading to the revised edition. For the scholar Mounce has been overtaken by the much larger Beale. However for the student Mounce is still one of the best commentaries available, I used Mounce more than any other commentary on Revelation I owned and I would recommend it.

Note: Among 7 recent scholarly commentaries on Revelation Mounce is the fourth most cited author.

End note: Since I wrote this review in 2000 Osborne has been published and I would now put that at the top of my list for students. However, Mounce is a good deal simpler for those studying Revelation for the first time.
