Dr. Easley has written a helpful commentary on the enigmatic Revelation. Written at a time of terrible persecution for the Christians, John sought to encourage and yet challenge them. Jesus has specific things to say to seven churches, and they are applicable to us today. John encrypts his words in imagery that is borrowed from Old Testament books like Isaiah, Ezekiel, Daniel and Zechariah. He covers important doctrinal themes like the second coming of Jesus and the wrath of God against evil, and practical themes like God’s protection of His people and the repentance from static Christian maturity. Easley also discusses the different millennial views that have become prevalent in the church today.
