In the second edition Koester provides new insights from recent scholarship and responses to the latest popular apocalyptic voices. Study questions make this new edition ideal for use in classrooms and study groups.

Top Highlights

“Revelation, however, does not offer a review of history but instead, as we will see, leads readers through overlapping cycles of visions that do not fall into a clear chronological sequence. The result is that Revelation does not disclose future events in a linear fashion, but it gives alternating messages of warning and encouragement that are designed to promote faithful endurance.” (Page 30)

“First, there was persecution, but at a local level.” (Page 32)

“Second, several congregations faced issues of assimilation” (Page 32)

“One of the most important of these questions is whether the visions in Revelation refer to future events or to timeless realities.” (Page 2)

“Together, Augustine’s use of Tyconius’s interpretation of Revelation and Jerome’s edited version of Victorinus’s commentary made a timeless and spiritualized reading of Revelation the dominant viewpoint for centuries to come.” (Page 8)

This book offers an innovative introduction to Revelation. . . . Highly recommended for ministry students, church study groups, and general readers.

—Adela Yarbro Collins, Yale Divinity School

Anyone looking for a good, interesting, and nontechnical study of the book of Revelation will want to consider this fine work.
