Revelation (The NIV Application Commentary, New Testament #20)

4.06 of 5 stars 4.06  ·  rating details  ·  47 ratings  ·  8 reviews
Most Bible commentaries take us on a one-way trip from our world to the world of the Bible. But they leave us there, assuming that we can somehow make the return journey on our own. In other words, they focus on the original meaning of the passage but don't discuss its contemporary application. The information they offer is valuable -- but the job is only half done!

This is a pretty good commentary, and if you are looking for a commentary that isn't technical, but still has a good overview of the book then this is a good option.

Read this commentary along with more technical commentaries and you'll be in good shape.

love the way the books in this series are laid out. Get a history lesson along with how it pertains to contemorary life. This is the third in the series I have read.

Very valuable. I love the format of this commentary series, but the quality is up or down. This one is definitely on the upside.
Matthew Shedd
Fair commentary from a millennial perspective. Some very weak sections, but some good thoughts!
I wish I could remember and retain what I learned from this commentary.
