One very impressive feat that is handily accomplished in Unveiling the Apocalypse is the comparison of texts from the Apocalypse of St. John, to the other books of the New Testament, to the prophets of the Old Testament, to the Catechism of the Catholic Church, and some elements of more modern private revelation. O’Reagan finds small details in the New Testament that are supported by equally small details in the Old Testament; not only does he do this, but he does it over and over again. It is truly amazing just how rich the text of the Apocalypse becomes when you see the depth of Scripture compared point-by-point.
Another element of O’Reagan’s work that I appreciate is his taking points back to the original languages. A little Greek can yield a marvelous depth and richness that is oftentimes lost in translation to English. O’Reagan opens up both Greek and Hebrew where needed to support his thesis, and the results are impressive.
Are there things in this book that many readers will find questionable? Yes. There are things in this book that I question. In fact, I’d go so far as to say that there are two or three things in this book that most people would likely find difficult to accept on first reading. But a more important question might be: do these things detract from the details offered, the overall narrative, and the interpretations offered by the author? The answer to this is a resounding: No.
No one book on the Apocalypse will satisfy every reader, and this book is no different. It is a massive and complex book, that deserves to be read with a great deal of care and consideration of <i>all</i> that is offered. In the end, if you read it through and look at the supporting documentation, it makes sense – and it makes sense even if you don’t agree with every interpretation offered.
I highly recommend it for anyone interested in eschatology or the interpretation of the Apocalypse of St. John.
