Item Description...
Revelation is probably the most read, but least understood book of the Bible. History is replete with examples of how not to interpret it, and books featuring end-of-world prophecy claims based on Revelation consistently top the bestseller lists. But how can the message of such an enigmatic book be applied to our lives today? In Discipleship on the Edge, Darrell W. Johnson drives home the challenging and practical message of Revelation in thirty carefully crafted sermons. Paying careful attention to the original context of Revelation and the circumstances surrounding its composition, Johnson shows that the book is not a "crystal ball" but rather a "discipleship manual." Thoroughly researched and yet accessible, this collection of sermons is a helpful resource for pastors and small group leaders who are looking for models to help them preach and teach the message of Revelation in a time when there is much confusion about the end times. Darrell W. Johnson is Associate Professor of Pastoral Theology at Regent College in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. A popular conference and retreat speaker, he has also served as the preaching pastor for a number of congregations in North America and the Philippines, as well as serving as Adjunct Professor of Preaching for the Doctor of Ministry program at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, California. His other books include Experiencing the Trinity and Spurgeon on Preaching.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Valuable resource!  Oct 24, 2008
Discipleship on the Edge is an excellent resource for studying the book of Revelation. Easily one of the best resources on the subject that I've seen.

While the book is quite thorough with it's historical exegetical work, Johnson presents material that is not only interesting for interpretation of the text, but material that is practically applicable for readers. Pastors using this book as a resource for preaching will find his approach both refreshing and helpful. In this sense I found the book a far more valuable resource than a number of other typical commentaries out there. I'd highly recommend this book.
Excellent Scholarship that is Reader Friendly  Jun 5, 2008
If I had to recommend a book on Revelation and I could only recommend one, it would be this book. This is an expository journey through Revelation. It is an easy and exciting read that is at times very moving. Each chapter is like a great sermon that you would hear in church by a great expositor. Theologically Johnson comes close to G. K. Beale, Richard Bauckham, and Craig Koester, but his work is an easier read than all three of these and the scholarship is every bit as good. Johnson handles every difficult issue in Revelation convincingly. He does not overreact like preterists do to the abuses of dispensational futurism, but he is not a dispensationalist, but he is a futurist. The resurrection and new creation are emphasized and worked out throughout Revelation and not just as a side note or an add on at the end of the book. He not only says that the book is a "revelation of Jesus", but he works that out throughout the book. If you are looking for a great interpretation of Revelation, this is it.
A very   May 17, 2007
I never thought I would ever spend time studying the last book of the Bible (And I'm a Pastor...). So much of what I have read from "specialists" has left me quite frustrated. TRY THIS BOOK. It has given me an "Aha" moment. Now, I see The Revelation of Jesus Christ as so practical to my Christian Life - I even led my adult Sunday School class - and we all survived -let alone enjoyed it! (I also have a recording of a series he preached/taught that I got from [...].)
Descipleship on the Edge  Feb 8, 2007
Descipleship on the edge is a wonderful book! While a coommentary and thouroughly researched (as one would expect) it is very uplifting and encouraging. It is a pleasure to read it. I recommend it for everyone who seeks to understand the book of revelation!
Tremendous Analysis  Nov 2, 2006
Unlike most discussions of the last book of the Bible, Darrell W. Johnson does not give a polemic analysis. His attitude toward the book is refreshingly Christo-centric and his goal in writing is to deepen a Christ follower's worship of and obedience to the Lamb that was slain. I personally have studied the book of Revelation for about as long as Johnson has (over 30 years) and I discovered a good number of rich nuggets (i.e., connections) in Johnson's analysis that I had never seen before. Johnson pays close attention to historical and cultural contexts (first century AD) and explores the Biblical precedents for the many images/symbols presented. Although I do not agree with all his conclusions, He rightly emphasizes total truth: Jesus Christ, King of kings and Lord of lords, contrary to what it may seem, is presently reigning over the nations through His faithful, obedient, and suffering people. Evangelical Christians have erred greatly in trying to understand this book as a "crystal ball" unfolding future events (for example, every time someone sneezes in the Middle East, evangelical prophetic pundits find this "ah-chooooo" mentioned somewhere in the book of Revelation). Unfortunately, this "crystal ball" approach hides the essential thrust of the book - it is an unveiling, a revelation, of the person of the Lord Jesus Christ. Get this book, study it, and then "see and hear" ringing truth - you will be thoroughly blessed (empowered) thereby.
