Format: Paperback
This is an excellent book. Though it is indeed user-friendly, it also happens to be packed with all kinds of historical and theological details. The book is presented as a light-hearted survey of one of the Bible's most mysterious and controversial books, but the writing and research is better than most "serious attempts" being forwarded in a genre more known for sensationalism than soundness of study. The author clearly has a point of view (Pre-millenial Dispensationalism), but quite surprisingly addresses other points of view with at least a modicum of respect. This is an exceedingly rare quality for prophecy pundits as they tend to write as if their position on the Book of Revelation is the only one that exists. You can mine a lot of great stuff out of this book even if you don't agree with everything the author has to say. I highly recommend this book for beginners and more serious students of prophecy.

Format: Paperback
This book is absolutely incredible. It breaks the book of Revelation down line by line, so you understand it perfectly. It's very easy to read, and provides information on different viewpoints of the prophecies. It's really just amazing.

I was terrified to read the book of Revelation before I got this book, because it was so scary and confusing, and it all just seemed totally illogical and bizarre. But with this book, I was able to understand it so clearly, and I was stunned by the glory of God.

We just started a small group study on the book of Revelation and have been using this book as a reference as we go. The book parallels the Bible and explains things in a way that can be understood. It has been a great help to all of us in the group. Let's face it - the book of Revelation is not easy to tackle even for the greatest of scholars. This book takes away the intimidation and is a great learning tool.

This is a great book for those who want a easy to understand commentary to the Bible's Book of Revelation. It has brought about insights to the Book of Revelation that I have read or studied at church and so forth, only this book helps to make it plainer and helps you in your visualization of the days to come. Very well done.

Received book in good condition and sooner than anticipated.

The book gives several explanations for the imagery but it's still a good idea to read the King James or HIV Version of the book of Revelation before you begin reading in The Book of Revelation. Overall it is a good aid to understanding the book of Revelation. I'm glad I ordered it.
