Abstract:

"Craig Koester provides commentary on each section of the book of Revelation, drawing on the best recent scholarship and contemporizing his discussion with references to events like the siege at Waco, the phenomenal sales of the Left Behind series, and the use of Revelation in hymnody and art. Based on two decades of teaching Revelation to seminary students, pastors, and lay groups, this discussion strikes a balance between taking the text s first-century context seriously and making Revelation relevant to twenty-first-century readers."--Jacket.
