"A well-known writer of New Testament commentaries tackles a well-known New Testament book. The result is an instructive reading of this often-discussed text. Read Osborne's Commentary on Revelation and learn."
--Darrell L. Bock, Senior Research Professor of New Testament Studies, Dallas Theological Seminary
"Somehow and seemingly at every turn in this most unusual of New Testament books, Grant Osborne has studiously avoided the cliche as well as the trendy. Instead, he has kept a steady eye on the big ideas of Revelation: the Christ of this book is the Lion, the Lamb and the Lord; the victory over evil most assuredly comes from a cosmic battle waged by the Father of the Lord Jesus against evil and all its dominions; and our means to that victory is a Spirit-generated faithful obedience through suffering."
--Scot McKnight, Julius R. Mantey Professor in New Testament, Northern Seminary
"Many people avoid the book of Revelation because it seems strange and its interpretation is controversial. Grant Osborne brings his many years of intense and intelligent study of Revelation to bear in this compelling reading of this book's powerful vision of Christ's second coming. I recommend it to all readers and especially pastors."
--Tremper Longman III, Robert H. Gundry Professor of Biblical Studies, Westmont College
"Grant Osborne has spent his entire professional career teaching and writing about good principles for the interpretation of Scripture and then modeling them in his own scholarship, not least in commentaries on numerous New Testament books. The Osborne New Testament Commentaries, therefore, are a welcome new series by a veteran New Testament scholar determined to spend as much time as God gives him in his retirement years distilling the conclusions of the finest of scholarship without bogging down the reader in the detailed interaction with all the various perspectives that have been suggested. If all the volumes are as good as this inaugural work on Revelation, the series will become a most welcome resource for the busy pastor or teacher."
--Craig L. Blomberg, Distinguished Professor of New Testament, Denver Seminary
"Grant Osborne has produced a marvelously written volume on the book of Revelation that will be immensely helpful for pastors and church leaders, including both students and teachers of Scripture. Carefully designed and thoughtfully structured, this commentary will enable readers to understand both the historical and textual meaning of this challenging book, as well as to grasp its theological and contemporary significance. It is genuine joy to recommend this fine volume. I pray it will receive the wide readership it deserves."
--David S. Dockery, President, Trinity International University
"The book of Revelation provides plenty of passages for challenging exegesis and interpretation. In this verse by verse commentary, Grant Osborne does not back away from the often controversial issues, but distills reams of previous material into useful insights and potential, effective teaching points. I am sure that pastors and other lay teachers will benefit greatly from this commentary on Revelation."
--Stanley E. Porter, President, Dean, and Professor of New Testament, Roy A. Hope Chair in Christian Worldview, McMaster Divinity College, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada
"Revelation is well known for its historical quagmires and hermeneutical imponderables, and is sometimes characterized by idiosyncratic and even perhaps eccentric interpretations. Grant Osborne's thoughtful approach, being fiercely biblical in nature, attempts to strip away what may be modern and superficial in thinking and seeks to unveil the book's central message by placing it into its ancient historical setting."
--Barry J. Beitzel, Professor of Old Testament and Semitic Languages, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School
"One of our premiere evangelical scholars on the New Testament, Grant Osborne has applied years of his life to the text of the New Testament's most challenging book. Yet his commentary on Revelation is no ivory-tower tome. The rich, deep-rooted research on display here weaves its way through a down-to-earth prose that is at once wonderfully accessible and devotional, sure to stretch the minds and warm the hearts of Christian leaders and laypeople alike."
--George H. Guthrie, Benjamin W. Perry Professor of Bible, Union University
