Get a Better Undertsanding of this Complicated Book Feb 13, 2008
Are you confused and a little intimidated by the The Book of Revelations? Well, I highly advise "The Complete Idiot's Guide to the Book of Revelation". Ministers James S. Bell Jr and Stan Campbell lay it all out for you in an easier to understand book. It goes through the whole of Revelations and stops and explains what it is by explaining what the symbol is and what it meant to it's original audience, the 1st Century Church. It then goes into the various theories about what the book means, while excluding some of the wilder and least popular theories. It also talks about some of the dangers of false prophecy, like the Heaven's Gate cult and Jim Jones disaster. Book of Revelations is a very hard book to understand because it is unlike any other book in the Bible (except the last half of Old Testament Daniel maybe), and the authors make no claim that this is the end all word on the subject. But it is a thorough once over of this highly symbolic piece of scripture.
The Book of Revelation Mar 26, 2007
The complete Idiot's Guide to the Book of Revelation helps our understanding of the symbolism inherent in Revelations. While we cannot be sure of exactly what is meant, the Guide is easy to read and comprehend. And the Book of Revelations itself promises a blessing to all who read it.
Enjoyable to read and Informative Nov 10, 2006
This is a great book on Revelation. It doesn't tell you what to believe. It gives you lots of history, lots of great details to help you understand better. My husband is using it to teach his teenage Sunday School class about Revelation and they are liking it. It is very user friendly.
"Except for 'Dragons, Grasshoppers & Frogs!', this is as simple as it gets!" Nov 19, 2005
I cannot understand why anyone (with the pretribulational perspective) would not like this book. It is entertaining, well designed, and fun to read. Bell quotes many scholars, and presents the information in an anything but boring manner.
Differing views are presented fairly, and historical tidbits are welcome insertions. So are the present-day applications.
Revelation doesn't get much simpler than this, except "Dragons, Grasshoppers & Frogs!" which is for new Christians and teens.
Both books deliver the goods, and would be excellent resources for those teaching this most wonderful last book of the Bible.
A funny and delightful way to learn about Revelation Aug 16, 2005
This book was a fun and delightful way to learn about the Book of Revelations in the Bible, yet at the same time it was very informative. If this book is going to be used in a study group for the book of Revelations, however, please be aware that the first 15 chapters cover the book chronologically from chapter 1 to up to the end of Revelations, but then has several additional chapters that cover such things as other views (preterist, historical, and the like). Therefore, a study group should leave time for covering these chapters as well, either while reading through revelations or at the end.
