From the Back Cover
Marking the completion of Baker's award-winning New Testament Commentary series, Revelation provides a comprehensive look into one of the most intriguing books of the Bible. This volume closely examines each illustration, each meaning, searching for the heart of God's message in this our last direct letter from him. Kistemaker masterfully shows that the Book of Revelation, with its intricate web of symbolism and expansive and awe-inspiring glimpses of heaven, is indeed a "divinely constructed volume in which God shows his handiwork."
Book by book, idea by idea, verse by verse-Baker's New Testament Commentary series is composed for the benefit of pastors and serious Bible students who want quality evangelical scholarship communicated with clarity. Each volume offers fresh translation, verse-by-verse comment and application, and critical notes on the Greek text.
Simon J. Kistemaker (Ph.D., Free University, Amsterdam) is emeritus professor of New Testament at Reformed Theological Seminary, Orlando. He received Gold Medallion Awards for four of the volumes in this series: Hebrews, James and 1-3 John, Acts, and 1 Corinthians.
