As I studied this commentary, these questions and many more were answered and I was rescued from the defeatology that I had been taught all of my life within the Baptist tradition. I now celebrate the victory on the cross as the greatest military victory of all time and live in His authority on this earth as His servant.
I was so thrilled to see such insightful use of the Bible to interpret this book, much of the Baptist teaching I had heard on the book seemed to try and interpret it without the use of the rest of the Bible outside of Daniel, Matthew 24, and Thessalonians.
I was also stunned by his knowledge of the culture of that day and how it applied to what John was writing about. It was far more in-depth than any of the Baptist teaching I had received that uses today as the frame of reference for the book to the exclusion of those to whom the book was written.
Be prepared to change your eschatological view when you read this book. If you read it with a closed mind...it is your loss...don't blame the author.Read more ›
The book itself sets a standard for in-depth analysis. Chilton convincingly shows that the symbols and Old Testament allusions are placed with great care by St. John and shows how all of the symbols place themselves within the flow of salvation history. I was personally stunned by the richness with which he describes God's covenant with Israel, the "covenant lawsuit" structure of Revelation and the inaguration of the new covenant.
The slight flaws of the book were the relatively few places in the book in which Chilton's Calvinist presuppositions drive his conclusions. For instance when speaking of the possibility of being erased from the Book of Life, Chilton launches into a brief and very misguided defense of the docrine of Perseverence of the Saints. The author also takes a needless detour bashing those who defend free-will by taking a tangent from one of the numerous verses that show God's soveriengty over human history in Revelation and then comparing it to some tract that he found in which the tract's author presents a position of borderline Pelagianism.Read more ›
