Almost all of the major opinions and arguments pro and con for each passage are cited along with their respective proponents and they are presented with great precision and scholarship. Although the author definitely has his own point of view, he is careful to write in a manner that at least comes across on paper as being fair and impartial to the reader.
Even though the exegesis is scholarly, it is not written to such a technical extreme that no one but a PhD can understand it. On the contrary, it is quite accessible to the average reader, yet has enough "meat" for anyone intersted in an indepth study. In short, you will enjoy reading it. This volume along with its companion volume on chapters 8-22 by the same author would be a highly prized addition to your library.
I also really appreciate the fair and reasoned explanations of different views. On occasion I find myself disagreeing with the author based solely on the thoroughness of the other views he has presented. He seems to give the best arguments of all the major views without setting up straw men to make his own view fair best. I highly recommend this volume for a study of Revelation.
The following was gleaned from The Master's Seminary website and gives you a good idea of Dr. Thomas' qualifications as a scholar:
Dr Thomas served as Chairman of the New Testament Department at Talbot Seminary for 28 years, then became Professor of New Testament at The Master's Seminary, where he presently teaches. He also serves as the Executive Editor of the Master's Seminary Journal.
Dr. Thomas was one of the participants in the conference sponsored by the International Council on Biblical Inerrancy in the fall of 1978. This body of evangelical scholars formulated the well-known "Chicago Statement" which serves as the standard evangelical position on the inspiration of Scripture.

Excellent commentary. Deals with difficult sections and gives multiple views. Not overly technical and all the Greek used is translate for the reader.Published 9 months ago by Roger G. Engeman
Author's even handed analysis of the differing interpretations is much appreciated. The Greek is nicely explained and accessible to we non-scholars.Published 22 months ago by Stephen Bailey
Thomas is very thorough in his work. If you could only have one commentary on Revelation this would be a fine choice. Very well done.Published 24 months ago by Todd
This commentary is an excellent resource for the serious Bible student, although not useless for one who simply wants a better understanding of Revelation. Read morePublished on November 19, 2013 by Sean Guthrie
This volume and its companion present the futurist interpretation in a clear and accurate way. This scholarly volume is a must have for the serious student of the Bible.Published on October 2, 2013 by Shawn White
This is very thorough, verse by verse study of the book of Revelation. It is written from a dispensational view-point, but it presents the other sides fairly. Read morePublished on May 19, 2013 by STRANGER&PILGRIM1972
