"The Victory of Christ: Exploring the Book of Revelation"
From the time of the early Christians, the book of Revelation has facinated and puzzled its readers in equal measure. Known as the Apocalypse of John, Revelation has left a profound mark on western culture. For many, however, Revelation remains a mystery, and it is rarely preached or read at Sunday Masses. The Victory of Christ: Exploring the Book of Revelation will offer many new insights into the book's origins; the apocalyptic writings in the early church; how its original audience might have understood the text; how it has been interpreted throughout the ages and its impact on the New Testament. Plan to explore its mysterious descriptions of the heavenly world: its powerful visions of plagues and cosmic disaster; its description of the New Jerusalem, and vital questions about John's apocalyptic vision. Finally, the book's self-designation as "a revelation of Jesus Christ" will focus on Christ's victory over the forces of evil and chaos, providing a sense of hope and understanding of the word of God.
