Brian R. Hand analyzes Revelation’s Christology and literary composition in The Worthy Champion. A valuable resource for Christological and New Testament studies, literary analysis, and biblical theology, The Worthy Champion shows how Revelation’s literary composition reveals Christ. Analyzing the genre of Revelation, Hand supports its status as prophetic rather than apocalyptic. He also discusses Revelation’s use of time, space, and physical structure and its characterization, plot, and symbolism and other literary devices. Each discussion includes Christological implications, and the last chapter synthesizes Christology with literary analysis. Hand’s conclusion includes homiletical values for Revelation’s Christology in preaching.
