Many Christians are intimidated by the book of Revelation because of its mysterious themes and prophetic language. Nineteenth-century theologian and pastor Joseph A. Seiss points out this lack of knowledge and familiarity, and asserts the need for study of Revelation. He calls for a renewed interest and careful attention to this book, stating that “there is no part of biblical exposition in which real guides are so scarce, or fresh effort so much needed.” To this end, he presents a series of 33 lectures that intensely inspect the book of Revelation passage by passage covering Revelation 1-7 in volume one and Revelation 8-13 in volume 2.
This is the first and second of three volumes. The third, which covers Revelation 14-22, is also available for purchase.
