In this commentary Joseph Mangina offers a constructive ecclesiology for the role and mission of the church in the 21st century formed by a close examination of Revelation. Examining the necessary cultural, theological, and exegetical issues, Mangina makes a compelling case that Revelation is a book that speaks profoundly to the church’s mission in the 21st century, and that it would do well to reexamine this cryptic and troubling book.

Mangina has produced a fine, rich commentary, one that not only instructs us about the Apocalypse but also urges us to listen to this vision as never before.

This well-written, literate, and illuminating commentary on a classically obscure text is at once theologically astute and ecclesiastically up-building—a rare combination indeed. I gladly commend it to scholars and teachers, preachers and laypeople alike.
