Editorial Reviews


[L]iberally spiced with insights.... [The authors] do a commendable job of striking a balance between the impact of this book on its original recipients and on its modern ones.... Highly recommended.


This volume makes a significant contribution to the scholarly literature on Revelation…full of rich and challenging insights which deserve careful reflection.

(Ian Boxall, Catholic University of America Modern Believing)

... offers a stimulating and constructive engagement with the Apocalypse.

(Grant Macaskill Journal for the Study of the New Testament)

The contributors present a compelling case that there are real political implications in the interpretation and identification of the main message of the Apocalypse.

(Ched Spellman, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society)


For many Revelation has effectively been decanonized―mostly little read and even less understood. This fine collection ventures into intertextual, canonical, theological, and political readings of the book that advance theological reflection on the significance of Revelation for today.

(Joel B. Green, Professor of New Testament Interpretation & Associate Dean for the Center for Advanced Theological Studies, Fuller Theological Seminary)

A splendid collection. This volume will help both the seasoned and the skittish interpret Revelation within its canonical context, and thereby move the academy and the church within hearing distance of apocalyptic texts in the gospels and epistles.

(Eugene Boring, I. Wylie Briscoe Professor of New Testament, Emeritus, Brite Divinity School, Texas Christian University)
