The book of Revelation has been often misused and neglected by Christians who are unsure of how to approach this apocalyptic text. Mitchell Reddish believes that the church has an obligation to reclaim the book of Revelation and allow it to speak afresh as a powerful message of God. His commentary combines serious scholarship with contemporary application, designed to help modern readers understand and appreciate this mysterious and forward-looking writing. Revelation is filled with visual and auditory richness. Reddish maintains that the visions, symbols, and seemingly strange images in the book are to be experienced more than explained. His interpretation asserts that the genius of Revelation is found in the cumulative effect of these imaginative components of John’s writings. The unique features of this commentary are its three-fold format for each section of the biblical text: 1 a commentary section containing critical analysis and interpretation; 2 a section that makes connects the text and the modern reader by suggesting contemporary applications of the text; and 3 special interest material related to the text.
