Item description for God's Final Word - Revelation by Ray C. Stedman...
Overview Ray Stedman begins this commentary by saying, "The book of Revelation is the scariest book in the Bible. Yet it is also one of the most comforting, reassuring, and exhilarating books in the Bible." And with characteristic clarity and care, Dr. Stedman leads his readers through the agony and the ecstasy of God's final word.
Long an enigma to the average reader, the book of Revelation poses many challenges for the pastor and commentator as well. But with the quality of a well-written detective story, God's Final Word explores the depths of John's Revelation verse-by-verse and brings to life the mysteries of this highly symbolic book. And when he is through, Dr. Stedman concludes: "Perhaps the most striking and profound aspect of this book is its relevance and importance to our lives in these closing days of the twentieth century. The book of Revelation is not just a musty piece of parchment from a bygone age...The book of Revelation is vibrant, alive, and profoundly applicable to the times in which you and I live."
Ray Stedman guides you on a verse-by-verse exploration of the book of Revelation, bringing to life the mysteries of this highly symbolic book of the Bible. "God's Final Word" encompasses and brings into brilliant focus the entire scope of human history--of eternity itself.

Reviews - What do customers think about God's Final Word?
Good Book Overall Sep 28, 2006
I found this book to be quite good. Ray Stedman has a great understanding of Revelation. I especially liked the chapters regarding the seven churches. They contained a wealth of information. I had to downgrade it to four stars because of one area I sharply disagreed with him on. He says the 24 elders represent angels, not the church. I disagree. And the scriptures he uses to back up his claim do not support his view. Other than that I highly recommend the book.
Clear and Easy to Understand! Jan 25, 2006
Based on expository sermons preached late in his life, Ray Stedman's commentary on the Book of the Revelation is clear and easy to read from start to finish. Ray had a simple style of speaking, yet he dispensed profound truth at many levels--something for everyone in the audience, whether new Christian or older. Ray's understanding of time and eternity, of the visible and invisible dimensions of reality, shines through with clarity. Thoroughly orthodox--premill, pretrib, with startling fresh insights. Superb editing by James Denney. This is Number One on my full shelf of commentaries on the Apocalypse.
