About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
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.
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.

Excellent commentary. Deals with difficult sections and gives multiple views. Not overly technical and all the Greek used is translate for the reader.Published 14 months ago by Roger G. Engeman

Thomas is very thorough in his work. If you could only have one commentary on Revelation this would be a fine choice. Very well done.Published on February 16, 2014 by Todd
