Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

An Exegetical Commentary. Written especially for the informed layman, student, and scholar, all exegesis and exposition is based on the original languages of the Bible books. Translations used are those of the author. Textual criticism and word study are included where appropriate. This in-depth commentary also includes extended excursuses on important topics of theological, historical, and archaeological interest. The text is interpreted according to a historical, critical, grammatical hermeneutic and propounds a conservative, evangelical theology. But the reader will not get a narrow view of problem passages. This commentary interacts with a range of major views, both evangelical and nonevangelical.

Format: Hardcover
This is one of the best commentaries on Revelation that I have encountered. While it is written from a dispensational point of view, it was encouraging to get to chapter four and not find that John's summon into heaven is automatically interpreted as being the rapture of the church. (For me, this particular interpretation has always been so obviously strained that it is embarrasing to me when folks actually try to preach it from the pulpit. It is also the farthest thing from a literal exegesis that you can get, in a place that does not even require a symbolic interpretation.)
Almost all of the major opinions and arguments pro and con for each passage are cited along with their respective proponents and they are presented with great precision and scholarship. Although the author definitely has his own point of view, he is careful to write in a manner that at least comes across on paper as being fair and impartial to the reader.
Even though the exegesis is scholarly, it is not written to such a technical extreme that no one but a PhD can understand it. On the contrary, it is quite accessible to the average reader, yet has enough "meat" for anyone intersted in an indepth study. In short, you will enjoy reading it. This volume along with its companion volume on chapters 8-22 by the same author would be a highly prized addition to your library.

This commentary is clearly written from one particular point of view but not without detailed clear explanation regarding opposing views. Regardless of your view of interpretation this commentary can be used as an informative read or a technical study. His greek translation is especially useful and can be understood even if you are only familiar with the greek alphabet. I have read through this volume a couple of times and am particularly impressed at the fairness of presentation of opposing views. If you are interested in understanding the Revelation make sure you have both volumes of Thomas's book on your shelf.

This commentary is an excellent resource for the serious Bible student, although not useless for one who simply wants a better understanding of Revelation. Thomas's two volume commentary set (1-7 and 8-22) is one of the most clearly articulated and scholarly writings from a pretribulational, dispensational, and literal perspective available. Even if you do not agree with Thomas, you cannot deny that his exegesis and articulation of the text are top notch. I would highly recommend this work to anyone who desires to understand this particular viewpoint on the book of Revelation. In fact, it would be difficult to find a more clearly explained and scholarly representation of the pretrib, premil, dispensational, and literal interpretive perspective.

I have often read commentaries and wonder how the authors conclude what they do based on the information they give. How can you evaluate an interpretation when so little is given to explain it? That is not the case here. If you want to know why this author interprets passages as he does, it won't take long to figure it out; it is loaded with explanation. In fact, it is one of the most comprehensive studies on the Book of Revelation that I have read. It is well organized and easy to follow.

I also really appreciate the fair and reasoned explanations of different views. On occasion I find myself disagreeing with the author based solely on the thoroughness of the other views he has presented. He seems to give the best arguments of all the major views without setting up straw men to make his own view fair best. I highly recommend this volume for a study of Revelation.

The following was gleaned from The Master's Seminary website and gives you a good idea of Dr. Thomas' qualifications as a scholar:

Dr Thomas served as Chairman of the New Testament Department at Talbot Seminary for 28 years, then became Professor of New Testament at The Master's Seminary, where he presently teaches. He also serves as the Executive Editor of the Master's Seminary Journal.

Dr. Thomas was one of the participants in the conference sponsored by the International Council on Biblical Inerrancy in the fall of 1978. This body of evangelical scholars formulated the well-known "Chicago Statement" which serves as the standard evangelical position on the inspiration of Scripture.

This is a very informative and detailed commentary on the Book of Revelation written from a premillennial dispensationalist viewpoint. I have found this commentary to be extremely useful for my study and for my teaching. I highly recommend this volume (chapters 1-7) and also volume 2 (chapters 8-22). I highly recommend this commentary.

This is very thorough, verse by verse study of the book of Revelation. It is written from a dispensational view-point, but it presents the other sides fairly. His view of the 7 churches of revelation is unique, in that he doesn't view them as a foreshadowing of church history. This is probably the most scholarly commentary on the book of revelation,from a dispensational view-point. Highly recommended.
