Ray Summers interprets Revelation in alliance with the historical circumstances Christians encountered in the late first century. Worthy is the Lamb is clearly outlined and carefully documented to offer a balanced, constructive interpretation of Revelation in the context of the whole New Testament and in the context of its historical setting.
Summers removes a lot of the end-time mystery that often confuses the modern reader of Revelation and focuses on what God intended to say to the first-century Christians and what He wanted them to understand. Dr. Summers firmly believes that as the Spirit led John to write for the needs of his first-century Christians, the Spirit can lead contemporary Christians to understand the significance of that writing for all time.
Ray Summers served as a professor of New Testament and Greek at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, and Baylor University, where he was Chairman of the Religion Department. He is the author of Essentials of New Testament Greek found in Essentials for New Testament Greek Studies (3 vols.), available from Logos.
