A Nice Commentary  Mar 3, 2005
This commentary is not for Amill or Post-mill persuasion. This commentary approaches the Book of Revelation from Pre-mill view point. This commentary is a very good book, because:
1. It is short and concise. It is basically a passage by passage commentary, so Robert Mounce dwells on the main points of the passage. He does not go into too much detail, but he does address important issues. But if you want more detailed treatment of the subject you can always refer to his commentary on Revelation in NICNT series.
2. It provides interesting insights. For example, I was impressed by his interpretation on Rev.3:15,16 -- concerning "you are lukewarm and neither hot nor cold..." Mounce comments, "The basic fault of the Laodicea church is that is it lukewarm. This has been understood to mean that spiritually the church was neither hot nor cold, but had settled for an insipid lukewarmness. It is regularly noted that several miles to the north of Laodicea, the hot mineral water from springs in Hieropolis spills over the cliff above the Lycus River and covers the wide escarpment with a layer of white mineral. By the time the water reaches the spillway, it has become lukewarm and is nauseous to the taste. The problem with this interpretation is the difficulty in understanding why it is better to be spiritually cold than lukewarm. The real contrast appears to be between the medicinal waters of Hieropolis, which would provide healing, and the cool drinking water of Colossae, ten miles on up the Lycus glen, which would provide refreshment. The Laodiceans were lukewarm in the sense that their Christianity provided neither healing for the spiritually sick nor refreshment for those who were spiritually weary" (p. 17). And like this, he provides insights throughout the book.
3. It is stimulating. While the book is short in length, its quality is not. He anticipates different views and addresses them and explains why his view is more reasonable.

Overall, the book is great for beginners without being intimidated by the difficulty of Revelation. I recommend this book to anyone.
