Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This graphic version of the book of Revelation brings a new light to the apocalypse of John. The illustrations reveal the intensity and the extraordinary elements of John's vision. The text is an adaptation of a faithful interpretation from the Greek text and is a verse by verse translation. I have read Revelation many times, and I have been captivated and intrigued by this version. I have been reading through it like it is a thrilling novel. The way the text is drawn out requires readers to pause and meditate on each verse rather than speeding through the book.
The illustrations are well done. They are imaginative and creative. Some of the figures in drawing reveal the other-worldliness of what the Book of Revelation describes.
This book can be an effective tool to draw readers into the Scripture and show the liveliness of God's Word. I think the graphic nature just adds one more dimension to reading the Book of Revelation.
I am on my third reading of this book, as I have made it part of my daily readings. It has truly enhanced my reading of Revelation.
For those interested in listening to an excellent teaching of Revelation, I recommend the Asbury Seminary class NT666 taught by Dr. Robert Mulholland found on iTunes and available at no charge in video and audio.
