Uriah Smith’s Seventh-day Adventist commentary on Revelation responds to the surge in interest in prophetic Scripture that occurred in the nineteenth-century. Smith focuses on how Revelation “takes us at once and so irresistibly into another sphere,” revealing the incomprehensible glory of God. His commentary encourages Christians to live in anticipation of Christ’s return, and to persevere in the knowledge of the church’s ultimate victory.
