From the Inside Flap
"Another lucidly written, theologically profound volume in what is emerging as a great commentary series. Mangina shows that Revelation is not an otherworldly book; it is a prophetic challenge and source of wisdom addressed to the church in this and every age. His learned study draws on centuries of theological thought (and also artistic interpretations), yet it is filled with fresh and often surprising insights. Mangina's work is useful--even inspiring--for contemporary theology and ministry."--Ellen F. Davis, Duke Divinity School
"Neither a book of resentment nor a symbolic work that needs decoding, Revelation is presented here as an 'apocalyptic haggadah.' Mangina's splendid commentary offers a rich theological interpretation drawing on liturgy, hymnody, creeds, and artistic depictions that invite us not only into the book of Revelation but also into the life of its true author, the Holy Trinity."--D. Stephen Long, Marquette University
"In this richly rewarding commentary, Mangina keeps his eye trained on the most important question we can ask about Revelation: how is this weirdest, most beguiling biblical book about the Triune God?"--Lauren F. Winner, Duke Divinity School
"This well-written, literate, and illuminating commentary on a classically obscure text is at once theologically astute and ecclesiastically up building--a rare combination indeed. I gladly commend it to scholars and teachers, preachers and laypeople alike."--Travis Kroeker, McMaster University
More About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
The author brings the cultural, linguistic, and hermeneutical matters required for the proper interpretation and application of this oft misconstrued apocalyptic text. Mangina informs the reader that the foremost objective of Revelation is the awesome disclosure and profession of the Lord Jesus Christ as the Supreme Lord of glory.
Important features of this commentary are:
- Expositions and comments from numerous ancient sources
- Historical work from sundry scholarly sources including ministers, historians, and theologians
- Interaction with important creeds, hymns, and ecclesiastical work.
This is a marvelous resource to utilize with exegetical and expositional commentaries.
The Necessary Existence of God: The Proof of Christianity Through Presuppositional Apologetics
This one is different. It reads like an Umberto Eco novel...complex, intriguing, suggestive, and insightful. Mangina clearly has a brilliant mind, a generous spirit, an excellent turn of phrase, and a love for the text that comes through every chapter. I heartily recommend it to you...

This is a literate, sane, and faithful commentary on a challenging book of the Bible. It is grounded in theology and sparse on speculation. Read morePublished 19 months ago by Mark E. Sidney
I would not say that I agree with all of Mangina's theology, but his work is very thorough and scholarly.Published 24 months ago by Todd
