Abridgment of an acclaimed scholarly commentary on the Greek text of Revelation
G. K. Beale's monumental New International Greek Testament Commentary volume on Revelation has been highly praised since its publication in 1999. This shorter commentary distills the superb grammatical analysis and exegesis from that tome (over 1,300 pages) into a book more accessible and pertinent to preachers, students, and general Christian readers.
As in the original commentary, Beale views Revelation as an integrated whole, as a conscious continuation of the Old Testament prophetic books, and shows that recognizing Revelation's nearly constant use of Old Testament allusions is key to unlocking its meaning. Interspersed throughout the volume are more than sixty sets of "Suggestions for Reflection" to help readers better grasp the relevance of Revelation to their lives and our world today.

The NIV Bible has become the best-selling English version of the Bible since the King James Version. The NIV Bible follows the principle of "dynamic equivalence" to ensure crystal clear understandable English and is the most readable English Bible ever produced. This translation results from the work of more than 100 scholars from six English-speaking countries,...
