It claims to tell the story of 'what must soon take place' and yet, despite centuries of scholarly research, the order and content of this story has remained one of the greatest mysteries of all time. Alan Garrow's perception of the text as designed for serial presentation provides a basis for a new and orderly understanding of the structure of the story. This development makes possible a new and coherent interpretation of 'what must soon take place'. According to this study, John discerned a close relationship between the present and the End. For today's readers, as for the members of the seven churches, this insight has profound implications for the way in which world events, weekly worship and everyday choices are perceived."@en ;
