Though I generally use a different interpretive method than does Osbourne, and so arrive at many different conclusions, nonetheless, I highly recommend this commentary for anyone looking to do serious study of the book of Revelation.
Overall however, a very useful commentary, which I highly recommend for students, teachers and preachers. I found him hard to put down, he reads so well. He bodes well to become the standard evangelical commentary for students.
NB. Most seminary students should own Osborne and Mounce. A good starter on Revelation would be Koester Revelation and the End of All Things.
For each passage of Revelation, the book is divided into introductory comments, exegesis and exposition, summary and conclusions, and then additional notes, which gives additional views from other scholars, showing their strengths or weaknesses in relation to the most current and accurate findings extant. (I am glad I didn't purchase Aune's, as I feel that Aune's comments are often off-the-mark.)
I do appreciate the way that modern revelation helps clear up many of the age-old questions that still seem to plague a clear understanding of Revelation; e.g. the authorship of Revelation: Which John actually wrote the vision? The problem seems to be that this John doesn't identify himself as John the Apostle, but he does say he is a Prophet and is referred to as Elder. For those in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, we sustain our Apostles as Prophets, Seers, and Revelators, and refer to them as "Elder so-and so", so it was clear to me that the John who wrote this vision is indeed John the Apostle of Jesus Christ. Although LDS insights are not referenced in this book, after assessing the views of other scholars, both modern and ancient (including Eusebius, LXX, Justin Martyr, Origen, etc.), Osborne also came to that same conclusion.
