Is there a book of the Bible more discussed and yet less understood than the book of Revelation? The “seven seals.” The “dragon.” The “beast.” The “sea of glass.” The fantastic imagery found in the book of Revelation has long captivated Christians but remains mysterious to many. In the midst of so much discussion about the end times, what does Revelation teach us about living in our current era, with our eyes focused on the heavenly Jerusalem?

Michael Barber’s Coming Soon explores these questions by taking a detailed look at Revelation and its rich tapestry of prophecy, history, and biblical allusion. Barber explores the profound link between the Mass celebrated here on earth and the eternal reality of heaven, demonstrating that the Apocalypse reveals truth that has practical implications for today—and that points to a firm hope in tomorrow.

Coming Soon is a verse-by-verse commentary on the book of Revelation based on the Revised Standard Version. Barber provides a Catholic interpretation concerned with the liturgical background of this book—a perspective missing in many Protestant commentaries. The volume includes questions at the end of each chapter to promote discussion and reflection.

A timely masterpiece. Barber’s book is a jewel to read and pass along to a friend worried about how and when the world might end.

David B. Currie, author, The End-Times Error That Leaves the Bible Behind

Mr. Barber asserts that the solutions to the world’s problems do not lie in politics, government programs, or social action. In this fine book contemporary readers can learn what Christians can do to battle against the enemies of God.

Laurie Watson Manhardt, author, Come and See Catholic Bible Studies

Not many books attempt to correlate the visions of the Apocalypse with Catholic liturgy and life. Michael Barber’s commentary does precisely this. If the ‘end times’ mania of our day leaves you wearied and wondering how it all applies to the here and now, Coming Soon will renew your strength, enrich your mind, and increase your desire for worship!

Singing in the Reign: The Psalms and the Liturgy of God’s Kingdom

Christians know the Psalms, sing the Psalms, and pray the Psalms more than any other book of the Bible. Yet, even as believers have grown more devoted to individual psalms, they have lost the big picture—the single sense that unites all the psalms as one coherent book.

Michael Barber is at the forefront of an emerging movement in biblical theology. With Singing in the Reign, he is recovering the story that was the common heritage of Jews and Christians in the ancient world. Barber shows how King David serves as an example for the chosen people as they struggled in exile. As David was rescued by the Lord, so would Israel be restored as a kingdom for all ages.

This is the story of Christ as well, whom Barber reveals as the “new David.” And, in Christ, it is the story of every Christian. The Psalms brings us—in our reading and in our prayer—from suffering and pleading to glory, triumph, and praise.

Barber’s analysis follows upon an extensive introduction by Scott Hahn, detailing the historical, cultural, and theological background of the Psalter.

What you’re about to read in Michael Barber’s books is not only good, but it’s new—it’s new to all of us. Moreover, it’s important. . . . This book will prove most profitable for your interior life.

    This is a fantastic set of books. Each is rooted in a deep Biblical theology of the covenant and careful exegesis. Not only are they full of excellent scholarship, but they're filled with the delight that comes from personally witnessing the gift of God's grace in the economy of salvation. A feast of faith for mind and heart.
