Reviews - What do customers think about Commentary-Revelation 8-22 (Exegetical Commentary)?
The last word Sep 13, 2004
Robert L. Thomas has methodically studied the Book of Revelation for years. It was the subject of his doctoral dissertation at Dallas Theological Seminary, and he makes us feel his intense lifelong interest. This is the best, most detailed commentary from the pre-tribulational,dispensational perspective. In addition, Thomas is the author of an excellent work on the grammatical-historical hermeneutic, and does not engage in wild flights of fancy with the text.
The only drawback is that it is not too hard to become lost in the wealth of detail. If I had a serious interpretational question, Thomas' work is the first resource I would reach for. Yet, if you are looking for the dispensational perspective with more overview and less detail, consider Walvoord or Hindson.
Note: This second volume has the indices for both volumes one and two!
A benchmark of literal/grammatical interpretation. Dec 14, 2003
Thomas has written one of the most thorough commentaries on the book of Revelation. This volume not only concentrates on the various facets of literal/grammatical interpretation but also delivers on the main discussions of each and every verse in the Apocalypse. Arguments of each discussion are logical and contain concrete citations. I highly recomend this volume to pastors, students, teachers, and ALL who are interested in understanding what Revelation says and why it says it!
