Item Description...
In this stimulating, pastorally oriented commentary, Michaels strives to recapture Revelation as a prophetic letter of testimony, a testimony as relevant to the church today as it was in John's as the church faces evil and looks for the victory of the Lamb. Readers will find an introduction with background material concerning authorship, date and purpose, as well as a summary of important theological themes. A passage-by-passage exposition following that focuses on what John had to say to his original readers in order to see the relevance of his book for the church today. Based on the NIV, it also includes notes on exegetical issues separated from textual commentary and verse-keyed notes and references.

Publishers Description
Interpretations of the book of Revelation are numerous and varied. The preterist view focuses on first-century social analysis of John's environment. The church-historical view sees the Revelation as a prophetic survey of the history of the church. The futurist view sees the book as a precise prediction of unfolding events in the yet-to-come end of the world.The trouble with all three, argues J. Ramsey Michaels, is that they make the Revelation of John irrelevant to Christians throughout much of history. Failing to take seriously what John saw, such interpreters do not comprehend the value of the Revelation to Christians in any age. Michaels strives to recapture the Revelation as a prophetic letter of testimony, a testimony as relevant to today's church as it was to John's as it faces evil and looks for the victory of the Lamb.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Revelation Revealed  Feb 25, 2006
Michael's commentary deciphers the challenging text of The Book of Revelation. His work is not exhaustive, nor should it be given the purpose of the IVP Commentary Series. His comments elucidate the difficult without confusing the reader. Scriptural continuity is maintained while conservative textual elaboration is affirmed.

We use this commentary for a small men's group discussion. When stumped or for simple clarification, we refer to Revelation by J. Ramsey Michaels.
Useful for the pastor  Dec 2, 2000
Retired seminary professor Michaels has written a sound commentary, as you would expect coming from IVP. He has the advantage of having taught Revelation over many years in seminary, college, and church; the result is a mature reflective commentary. The commentary is not over technical, or large, there are useful footnotes as required and he comments on a passage rather than verse by verse. His writing style is a bit like D M Lloyd Jones so he is not a quick skim. It is meant to be read as a book and not dipped into. The text of Revelation is in italics and appears in small sections or individual words as he discusses a passage. The commentary could do with more detail, but as he says "writing a book, like making fine sculpture, is about knowing what to leave out" and this is a commentary that needs to be savored not gulped. The commentary would be useful to the pastor having the time to study and digest the passages, especially for those who have not preached beyond Rev 3. At the time Revelation was written the greatest danger to the church was complacency just as it is today.

I found his transformation of the seven trumpets to the two witnesses to be interesting; the first being unsuccessful while the second successful in achieving repentance among some of the earth's inhabitants.

Worth getting for the pastor and the scholar, but not my first choice for the student, try Mounce, Krodel or Ladd.
