B 28 How to Read the Book of Revelation


After 2,000 years, the Book of Revelation continues to both attract and repel. Where should we start in trying to make sense of its bizarre imagery? How do we go about relating it to life in the 21st century? And how can we tell the difference between sensible interpretation and misleading speculation?

This accessible guide, aimed at the non-expert, explores why Revelation appears so difficult to understand and engages positively with the key issues. With extensive additional material on the Grove web site (including charts, teaching material, and resources for further reading) it opens up some exciting new ways of hearing Revelation's message afresh.
