Publishers Description
Roadmap, myth, or history? The Book of Revelation draws readers and repels them. It offers some people hope and instills fear in others. In this volume of the new AABS series Frederick W. Schmidt, also the series editor, explores the approaches that have dominated the interpretation of John's Apocalypse and offers the reader an accessible means of understanding and evaluating them. With this grounding in hand, Schmidt explores how Revelation can shape our understanding of God, and nurture our spiritual lives in unexpected ways. Leaving behind left-behind theology, Schmidt offers instead an approach that allows this obscure, almost opaque text to speak to us anew about God, faith, hope, and justice. Books in this series, co-sponsored by the Anglican Association of Biblical Scholars, are written in accessible language, sensitive to the needs of people who have little or no experience in reading the Bible. Each book focuses on exploring the historical and critical background, as well as how the biblical texts written centuries ago can still speak to readers today.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Tremendous read, tremendous insight  Apr 15, 2005
As the first in a series of everyday commentaries on Scripture, Dr. Schmidt's work on Revelation is a wonderful place to start. With the huge popularity of the Left Behind series and other similar books, a true, in-depth study of Scripture is refreshing. When you read this work, you are able to unpack what The Revelation of St. John is actually saying, not what "scholars" tell you it says. A man with unparalleled credentials as an Anglican priest and Biblical scholar, Dr. Schmidt is a wonderful storyteller who has an amazing ability to clarify one of the most misunderstood books of the Bible.
 
A Journey of Complexity and Clarity  Mar 15, 2005
It was refreshing to read a text on Revelation that did not contain a blow by blow description of earth's final days, the judgment of all humankind and the transformation of heaven and earth. This book is based on the whole of the Scripture and not just the parts of it that suit us. At one point, the author quotes William Sloan Coffin who once observed that the problem with Americans and the Bible is that we read it like a drunk uses a lamppost. We lean on it; we don't use it for illumination. I found the clarity of this book to be helpful for adult study groups and the depth of the book as a possible use for seminary classrooms. It politely but ruthlessly demolishes the "Left Behind" approach and outlines an alternative to reading the Book of Revelation, informed by historical and literary criticism. I was made aware of such important, complex topics as the character of Revelation as oral communication; the performative nature of various genres, and the inescapable presence of violent, vengeful themes in apocalyptic literature. As I completed the book I sensed that I had been on a journey that honored complexity and brought me to a degree of clarity.
