Format: Paperback
Michael Wilcock writes helpful guides to understanding the bible. This book is sane and sensible. Wilcock helps us to think about how the book would have related to its original audience, and how it can be relevant to us today.
Wilcock's way of interpreting the book uses the best of the Preterist and Idealist methods.
I highly recommend his book. You will also find Steve Gregg's Revelation: Four Views: A Parallel Commentary an indispensable aid.

Format: Paperback
He changed my mind on the millenium. He opened my eyes to a realistic and biblical interpretation and application of Revelation. He presents the material in a fair, warm, and readable style. Absolutely unparalleled for use in groups, by an individual, for preaching, and for teaching. This is the one book I give to students, friends, and inquirers

Easily the best short commentary on Revelation. Good for anyone looking for an introduction to Revelation, or a minister looking for something to assist with preaching.

Wilcock takes the "recapitulation" approach--and does good work of making his case. Because the commentary is not intended to be a complete analysis of every verse, many questions go untreated. For those looking for a complete commentary, see Greg Beale's commentary on Revelation. It's the magnum opus of our generation, and it will take several more generations before it's surpassed.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is one of the two commentaries (Hendriksen's *More Than Conquerors* the other) that most influenced G.K. Beale, with regard to his "eclectic" or "modified idealist" amillennial position – and Beale is among the very best Revelation commentators, if not the best, what with his continuing studies of John's use of the OT in Revelation.

This is a compact volume, and easy reading, but very insightful. A significant contribution to the amillennial school.

Good exposition and successfully written for the scope he aimed
to do for this New Testament book. I especially liked his thought that as we
read about the city of God that is described, we are looking in the mirror and it is about us.
That is a true thought and one I have not ever found any other scholar to have
published. Thanks.
