I have read numerous commentaries on Revelation, and I consider this one of the very best.
Finance Prof
I read books that compared the different views on how to interpret the millennium and read a commentary on Revelation written from an amillennial perspective.
John Holm
If you want to understand Revelation with an Idealistic and Amillennial perspective, I recommended you to read this book.

Johnson's commentary is amillenial, exegetically sound, and detailed without becoming verbose. I have read numerous commentaries on Revelation, and I consider this one of the very best. It ranks alongside William Hendriksen's More Than Conquerors and Vern Poythress' The Returning King, but is much more in-depth than either of those. Also highly recommended are the commentaries by Kistemaker and Beale (both are fairly long).

There was a time when it seemed like the only Christian books I read were on the subject of eschatology. I read books that compared the different views on how to interpret the millennium and read a commentary on Revelation written from an amillennial perspective. I thought that was sufficient until I joined a Bible study earlier this year. The next book on their agenda was a book on Revelation. I initially had the rather cynical thought, "But I've already read a commentary on Revelation!" (That book was More Than Conquerors by William Hendriksen.) But of course, no Christian who is serious about learning everything they can about the Bible should be content with reading only one commentary on a particular book. It came as no surprise then, that I truly enjoyed Dennis Johnson's book Triumph of the Lamb.

Johnson's book is a concise, exegetical look at the last book of the Bible. After an introduction and an overview of Revelation, he presents it in a more or less verse by verse format, explaining what each verse means. Readers who are aware of the various schools of interpretation regarding Revelation will instantly recognize Johnson's take as the idealist view. This view sees the many visions as symbolic of events and ideas that recur throughout the time between Christ's advent and his return. Many of the visions show the same event from different perspectives (or "camera angle" as Johnson likes to put it.) The idea that the visions in Revelation are not presented in chronological fashion may be strange to some, but Johnson points out over and over that this is the only view that truly makes sense.

There are many strengths to the book. Johnson's exegesis is solid.

This book presents an explanation of the last book of the Bible that makes sense. It is not what is so commonly being preached and taught today. It is a view that shows that Revelation really does connect to the rest of Scripture making one complete unit. The author also gives short explanations of some other ways to view the difficult passages allowing the reader to better evaluate these texts. It is rare to find so much of the book of Revelation keyed to Old Testament passages that also look to the future, even beyond our day. Chapters and verses of Revelation are easy to locate all through the book so one can quickly take a look at those puzzling passages. I highly recommend it to each who is interested in learning more about the interesting way Revelation presents human and heavenly events - many times in different ways from different views. Some of these events are already past; but some (and these peak my interest) remain for us to still expect.

I just finished teaching an adult Sunday School series on Revelation. My brother-in-law, who is a professor at the same seminary where Dennis Johnson teaches, suggested this book as a resource. I relied heavily on this tome throughout the 11 weeks of the course, especially since I did not like the curricula I had found and ended up creating my own curriculum. The writing is clear and easy to follow. The concepts are organized and well thought out. The theological concepts and explanations are sound, scholarly work. Dennis did a great job tying in themes and references to the Gospels and Hebrew Scriptures. Bravo!

I'm pretty much half way into the "Triumph of the Lamb" and it has changed my life. Dennis Johnson skillfully unveils the Book of Revelation as cycles of visions. It's liken to watching football and seeing different plays from various camera angles. Each camera angle gives such tremendous edification for the play that you cannot help walking away blessed.

Indeed the blessing of hearing Revelation is truly made manifest once the believer is able to correctly approach the Book of Revelation as a book of visions and symbolism. This is one commentary you will find hard to put down.

For the past 15 or so years I have avoided Revelation, in part because I assumed the book would be too difficult for a normal guy like me to understand. Recently I decided it was time to stop neglecting this portion of God's Word.

Thanks to Dennis Johnson for producing such a well reasoned commentary without the sensationalism so common in modern Christian writings. I never dreamed that Revelation would make sense to me or, as it has, become my favorite book of the Bible. It pretty much summarizes the entire Bible.

I would encourage any who have, like me, been scared of Revelation to simply read it for what it says and compare Scripture with Scripture (rather than the evening news). Triumph of The Lamb will help you through this study. It certainly has helped me tremendously.
