Hendriksen's book is a refreshing change from those of contemporary authors trying to fit today's headlines into Revelation's scenes.

Hendriksen was a Christian Reformed pastor and professor at Calvin Theological Seminary (he died in 1982). This book presents the Reformed view of John's Revelation. This may be a different interpretation than most readers of prophetic books are used to these days. That the book I reviewed is a 75th anniversary edition shows that the Reformed view has s

This book is an anniversary edition commemorating 75 years of “uninterrupted printing history” according to the information from the back cover. I don’t know how many other interpretations like this can claim that honor. Within the biographical tribute the reader will find that a publisher named Herman Baker “presented the first trade copies…to the author in July 1939.” (7) This is indeed a commemorative edition.

Given the age of this work I am sure scholarly reviews must be available for those

The book of Revelation for some may seem to be a daunting book. The visions that John relates to us are terrifying, magnificent, condemning, and hopeful. First published in 1940, More Than Conquerors was written by William Hendriksen, and has now been re-released by Baker Books for its 75th Anniversary.

The first six chapters help to give the reader a broader understanding of the book of Revelation. It’s purpose Hendriksen claims is:

“To comfort the militant Church in its s

William Hendriksen was a minister, professor, and New Testament scholar, but he was perhaps best known for his excellent commentaries on several New Testament books. More than conquerors: An interpretation of the book of Revelation was first published in 1940 and has been re-released by Baker Books in a 75th anniversary edition.

The first six chapters of the book provide a general overview of the book of Revelation looking at issues like symbolism, unity, and purpose. One thing I appreciated abo

William Hendriksen’s More Than Conquerors is a classic. It is also a helpful corrective for many who may be tempted to buy into those peddling books giving exact time tables for the return of Christ.

His interpretation of Revelation is idealist and amillennial, which might surprise readers as many assume that the premillennial view is the only one. Whether one agrees or disagrees with Hendriksen on the details of the millennium and other matters of interpretation no serious reader can

In all, Dr. Hendriksen sees More Than Conquerors as a way for those who enjoy or sought a deeper understanding of Scripture, to see and find an appreciation for it, and a different perspective than one from a textbook per se. The title of this book speaks more to what this book hopes to achieve, which references this Biblical verse:
37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, n

This is a new publishing of a classic book. They layout was easy to read and it was a book that was still inspirational after all this time. I had heard passages from this book over time and decided it was time to see it in its entirety. It is a book that is meant to be shared and used for inspiration for all. It gives you a great set of help to use scriptures to understand what is going on in the world that is just as relevant today as it was 75 years ago.
I received a copy of this book fr
