Format: Paperback
This book is for the serious reader and researcher of the Book of Revelation. Bauckham has not only great exegetical skill, but has a great knowledge of history. This book is a series of essays that can be read independently of one another. Some essays are better than others, but the overall book is definately worth reading. Bauckham does not take a dispensational approach, but he is not clearly a preterist either. He appreciates the historical setting of John's day, but does not believe that the message of Revelation stays only in John's day, but is characteristic of how God acts in history and in the future. I like this book, but I liked his "The Theology of the Book of Revelation" better because it is in a more reader friendly style. If you are going to purchase this book it would help to know Greek, because he uses it extensively.
This essays or topics he covers best in the book are his explanation of the 144,000, Nero and the number 666, the positive view of God's plan in his chapter entitled "the coversion of the nations" and how he sees the worship of Jesus as aprimary focus in Revelation. One chapter has an excellent presentation about how the book of Revelation should be outlined. Bauckham offers great insight and I highly recommend this book.

Format: Paperback
This is not really a commentary on Revelation. It's a series of essays on a number of topics in the book. For example he takes the "silence" in heaven or the lamb/lion/dragon imagery and examines them in light of contemporary Jewish apocalyptic books like 4 Ezra, 2 Baruch, and also Enoch. The orientation is fairly conservative and the outlook is NOT premillenial. Some Greek, Latin, and Hebrew is included. This book is probably most geared for the experienced reader. Very good overall.

Format: Paperback
This is not a traditional commentary but a specialized study on the book of Revelation. Apoocalyptic literature is difficult to understand but Dr. Bauckham allowws the reader to see the theology, literary qualities, and see the connection and rootedness in the Old Testament. Clarity is brought to much of the enigma of this book while engaging one's interest and imagination. If you are going to study, preach, or teach on the book of Revelation make sure you haveThe Climax of Prophecy close at hand. or preac
