In preparing the comments in this book, my aim has been for the average reader to be able to read the book of Revelation without being overwhelmed by it. I have attempted to clarify many of the questions raised in today's climate of conflicting interpretations. Questions such as: Why did John say he wrote of things "which must shortly come to pass" when he wrote over 1900 years ago? Does Revelation speak of nuclear war that's just around the corner? Revelation has its difficult passages, of course, but this book isn't as difficult as we've thought it to be. Why don't you begin a study for yourself? This commentary can help you.
