I actually give this book 0 stars because of the numerous factual errors I encountered from the outset. I thought at the very least that I would get some insight into the "rapture" crowd, but clearly LaHaye would like readers of the Bible to stick with literal translations of the text while he goes way off the rails with his reading into the text. All-in-all, this book is for those people who fear death and cannot live in a world of ambiguity. (Anna, supposedly we've been "very close" for about ...more

Recommends it for: Anyone researching the End Times movement
First published in 1999, Revelations Unveiled is one of the main source texts for the End Times movement that has swept the United States since Hal Lindsay published The Late Great Planet Earth in 1970.

In it LaHaye interprets The Book of Revelations, the last book in the New Testament, which prophesies the return of Christ to earth. His analysis rests upon the belief that all prophecy constitutes “love letters from God.” But as anyone who has read the Bible knows, prophecy in general and the Boo

While writing my own book, Roadmap Through Revelation, I found this and many other books to be very helpful. As far as the much ado about being a Catholic basher, it's not bashing individuals to simply put the truth out there about their organization. The fact is the RCC has adopted many pagan practices and is Babylon of Revelation (see The Two Babylons: Or The Papal Worship proved to be the worship of Nimrod and his wife.). She has the blood of saints all over her.

Another great book by Brother

Very good study on the book of revelation. I think we are very close. The agenda for the North American Union is well advanced. I expect the next president will preside over the end of our country as we know it. When America goes down we will take the world with us.

I thought Lehayes analysis was good. We are to know the season. I don't want any of my loved ones left behind. It will be awful. In the past there was a place to excape to. There will be no escape once the tribulation starts.

Tim LaHaye has done it this time!

Revelation Unveiled is a classic textbook-type resource, that explains in great detail, the book of Revelation.

This is a "must read," "must own" book for any serious Bible student, as well as anyone with even a passing interest in Bible prophecy.

A fantastic resource! Get a copy today!

This is typical dispensationalist, pretribulational doctrine. LaHaye misinterprets, or simply misunderstands many eschatalogical passages and reads them out of context through his dispensational glasses. Not recommended at all!

I do not follow dispensationalism in its entirety. I respect many believers who are dispensationalists. This is a great book to understand their position.

Recommends it for: nobody
Pretty dogmatic.
I am suspicious of writers who say something like, "It's easy to understand if you..." especially a interpreting a book like Revelation.

I wouldn't recommend it.

Ridiculous premillennial nonsense.

2.5 stars
I have read and studied eschatology since Hal Lindsey’s early 1970s publication of The Late Great Planet Earth. I have no formal training, but I place value on the credentials of the speaker/author as well as my own discernment.

There is no question that Tim LaHaye is a learned authority on the subject. Revelation Unveiled (1999), published at the time when millions were following the Left Behind series, is a comprehensive study that is supplemented with charts and tables to increase un

Excellent and very understandable commentary on the book of Revelation. So many Christians seem to be afraid of Revelation. Why? Believers need not fear, only unbelievers... who should be VERY afraid. Revelation means "Reveal" which means this book is meant to be understood to those who have ears to hear and hearts open to the Holy Spirit. All Christians should read this on these last days! And non-Christians would do well to read it to... and to put their faith in the Lord Jesus Christ before ...more

Awesome, awesome book! One of the best books on explaining biblical prophecy I have ever come across. If you are reading Revelation and find it difficult to understand, or just are a life-long student of prophecy, this is a wonderful resource. The author takes the book of Revelation chapter by chapter and explains them, almost verse by verse.
There is a good section on the ancient history of the Roman Catholic church. The author hardly lets a chapter go by without at the end explaining man's nee

I am an Evangelical Christian through-and-through, and, as such, I was raised on the the Hal Lindsey/Tim LaHaye model of eschatology, including its core tenet, the Pre-Tribulation Rapture. Revelation Unveiled is Dr. LaHaye's "official" doctrinal statement of his beliefs about the End Times, and when I read this just a few months after it was published in 1999, it inspired me to begin writing my own book series on the topic of the Last Days, These Final Days. However, my inspiration came from a s ...more

This book is very thorough and should be read and studied deliberately. Its certainly not meant to be a quick read. Revelation is examined verse by verse; LaHaye refers to many other Scriptures in New and Old Testament to provide background, clarity and the basis for his commentary. While many may not agree with his Pre-tribulation stance, he does give logical explanation and Scripture background to verify his position.

Beautifully Revealed

I've long been interested in learning about the book of Revelation. The reading can be very confusing by getting lost in the literal text. This book leads you through the scriptures, detailing, and explaining through quoting other noted theologians and scriptures throughout the Bible to lend credibility. I highly recommend this book to anyone who seeks to know more about end times and eternity.
Aug 05, 2015 Truitti rated it it was amazing
I might not agree with all of LaHayes interpretation, but I find this is an excellent book to start digging into what may happen and the end times. I did find that it helped me to understand Revelation better, and has caused me to be excited about living with God. It truly doesn't matter if you are a rapture believer, or any other label. The bottom line is to accept the blood sacrifice of Jesus Christ for your sins, and accept His death and resurrection.

this is a blood chilling book if you take it seriously. i once heard a dj say that he didn't like movies that had a spiritual edge. he thought that they were more scarey than what you could make up because of the possibilities for them to actually happen in real life. the end of time is real life stuff and this author makes it very clear and easy to understand the Biblical text.

I didn't read all of this one--I just skimmed until I found points of interest. It's a study of the book of Revelation. My interest was piqued after I saw Doomsday 2012 on the History channel. THAT show I recommend. It's really interesting.

Shelves: research
LaHaye spends the entire book repeating everything he previously wrote. Each chapter begins with a summary of what he will discuss, and the rest is just different wording of the same topics.

Revelation Unveiled could easily have been cut by 2/3.

Definitely NOT bedtime reading. You want to be able to check scripture verses and dig deep. It's a great research tool!

Still reading but it is very eye opening. If Jesus came today would you be going with Him or would YOU be left behind???

This book might as well be fiction, as it takes scripture and rips it completely out of its intended context. Your presuppositions will die hard, Tim.
