Getting a glimpse into the future is always intriguing, especially when that glimpse comes from God’s Word. But let’s face it, the book of Revelation has some pretty weird stuff in it: seven-headed beasts, locusts with gold crowns, a city coming down from the sky.

I have been studying the book of Revelation for over 35 years and have read numerous books on the subject. Douglas Connelly's book is by far the best I've read. It is clear and concise and presents other viewpoints without bias. If you're looking for a thorough Bible study on Revelation get this book.
I can only guess that the people who rated it one star either are not Christians, did not finish it, or hold an opposing viewpoint on one of the interpretations.

This was a fantastic book! I appreciated that it is straight forward and presented with multiple viewpoints. I will certainly be reading more books by this author. I'm using this book as a guide to teach Revelation to elementary-age students (In a very G-rated sort of way. I want them to sleep at night!) and this book has been a perfect guide.

I found this book very rewarding and found that it is a very short and to the point and detailed book about the book of revelation it most defiantly helped me understand the book of reevaluation. 5 sttars would give more

“In light of his criticism, maybe we need to reevaluate Jesus’ commendation — and look more closely at our own church and our own lives. The church at Ephesus was a hardworking church, but without the hot fire of love for Christ, their work was simply a performance. The services were well planned, the pews were packed, and the pastor’s sermons were polished, but Jesus says, “I miss the love you had at first.” He misses the extravagance of love poured out; he misses the spontaneous expressions of praise; he misses the full sacrifice of their hearts. The ministry at the Ephesian church in your neighborhood is very impressive, but Jesus is not pleased.” 0 likes
“The hardest people to talk with about Jesus are not the people who are far from God and who know they are far from God. Those people are often eager to hear about Jesus’ love and forgiveness. The hardest people to talk with about Jesus are religious people — baptized but not born again, members of an earthly church but not members of Christ by faith.” 0 likes
