Format: Hardcover
Revelation: Unlocking the Future, by Edward Hindson is the Twenty-First Century Commentary Series' contribution on the Book of Revelation. This concise commentary contains several charts, maps, and visual representations of the many literary devices employed in Revelation. The bibliography and endnotes are nice to have for further reading. The book is written for Bible students, whether formal or laymen, but it is still an easy read. The commentary is fast-paced, and Hindson often compares Revelation to a drama. The language is straightforward - no need for a dictionary - and it is even humorous at times, which may take some getting used to for the scholarly-types. It seems rather light for college level reading, but the reader is left with a solid grasp of the Pretribulational view of Revelation. The book is very well organized. It outlines Revelation into 7 major sections, and the book is divided into 22 chapters (as is Revelation). Each chapter begins with a Twitter-esque preview, followed by the exposition and wrapped up with study questions. The Scriptural text is not included, and there is relatively little exegesis. The author explains some Greek words, but knowledge of Greek is not necessary. The commentary moves along rapidly, as does Revelation, and one of its greatest qualities is that it delivers a lot in a few, plain words. It's like a bigger commentary with all the extra words wrung out of it. Hindson sticks to his view while still being respectful of others, even quoting them favorably at times. This volume is not in any way an attack on other eschatological views, which is refreshing, since others devote countless pages to debate rather than the actual biblical text.Read more ›

I just finished reading The Book of Revelation: Unlocking the Future by Dr. Edward Hindson for my class at Liberty University. I was required to read the entire book in eight weeks, along with several more commentaries on the book of Revelation. I found this commentary book easy to understand and follow, while some of the other Revelation commentaries provided a deeper level of interpretation. This book is divided into 22 chapters, one for each chapter of The Revelation.

Dr. Ed Hindson, author of the book, has authored over twenty books and taught more than 50,000 students over the past twenty-five years. He holds several degrees and is a visiting lecturer at Oxford University and Harvard Divinity School. He is the Assistant Chancellor, Professor of Religion and Dean of the Institute of Biblical Studies at Liberty University.

In The Book of Revelation: Unlocking the Future Dr. Hindson shares the viewpoints of Biblical scholars such as David Jeremiah, Bruce Metzger, Robert Mounce, John Stott, Robert Thomas, John Walvoord and others. He explains the different viewpoints and interpretations of The Revelation as seen from various religious theologies, particularly in chapters that are often debated and argued. He is clear to distinguish his own opinion from the opinions of other Bible scholars and shares when he agrees and disagrees with these teachings.

By the time I completed the book I had a much better understanding of Revelation than when I started. Dr. Hindson brings clarity to the symbolic messages, the time frames, the people and the events in the end times. I found it refreshing to view these events through the lens of scripture rather than through the lens of fictional books, social media discussions, or theology debates that are too common today.

i really enjoyed this book. i wasnt going to get it, seeing i have many study bibles and a couple of revelation commentaries already. but i got it because i think ed hindson really can teach, even the most difficult passages he helps you understand. as of feb 5th 2010 on tbn, ed hindsons program the king is coming is at part 3 of a 12 week study of the book of revelation. check his website out also, the king is coming. if you missed the series you can buy the audio or video of it. i have learned so much just in 3 weeks. i bought this book to have an in depth explanation so i could highlight important parts. not sure what the other reviewer wanted from a commentary giving it only 1 star. but to each is his own. ed hindson talks a great deal about numbers and their significance in revelation. there are 22 chapters matching the 22 chapters of revelation. he also gives you plenty of old and new testament examples of how they relate and even prophecy of the coming events of revelation. he also has 9-12 questions at the end of every chapter to review. the 1st question of each chapter takes you to another book in the bible and ask you how it relates to revelation. get this book for a once and for all study on the book of revelation. it is 228 pages of commentary, that he pulls from hundreds of other books, that he has researched. i believe ed hindson to be right up there with, jack van impe, grant jeffrey, and tim layhaye as far as bible prophecy is concerned. i also bought his commentary on matthew from the same 21st century series. i intend to get all 13 volumes of the new testament in that series, so stay tuned for other reviews from me. check out other products i have reviewed. these sources have helped me learn more in the last 3 years than my entire life.Read more ›
