Gordon Fee has trained a generation of scholars and pastors in the art of biblical interpretation. In this volume, this master exegete applies his skills to guide the reader through one of the most often misunderstood books of the New Testament. Fee writes a commentary on Revelation not a commentary on commentaries on Revelation that provides an engaging, readable exposition of this text that lay persons will find immediately accessible. His personality shines through on every page, so that the reader does not merely encounter 'material,' but also the faithful teacher behind the material. Fee's personal involvement in the translation of the NIV 2011 makes this volume particularly valuable as a commentary on this English version.

I could not agree more with Dr. Fee's statement that "one must join the heavenly host in worship, or John's whole reason for writing may get lost in the pursuit of details." Due to John's emphasis on the 7th seal (5:5), the scroll's contents are revealed after all the seals have been broken. Thus the opening of the seals reveal not the scroll's contents but the reasons for God's coming intervention. In fact, the martyrs of the fifth seal anticipate much of the rest of the book.
Dr. Fee understands the famous passage in 20:1-6 as something of an interlude between Rome's downfall (19:11-21) and the judgment of Satan and all humanity (20:7-15). This interlude serves as a reminder that God's people---in particular those who have made the ultimate sacrifice---are neither defeated nor forgotten. He repeatedly points out that many of John's images cannot be imagined in literal detail but in terms of their intended impact. I would enthusiastically recommend this commentary.
