The Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible enlists leading theologians to read and interpret scripture creedally for the twenty-first century, just as the church fathers, the Reformers, and other orthodox Christians did for their times and places. Revelation, like each commentary in the series, is designed to serve the church--providing a rich resource for preachers, teachers, students, and study groups--and demonstrate the continuing intellectual and practical viability of theological interpretation of the Bible.Praise for Revelation in the Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible"Joseph Mangina has sat patiently with every twist and turn in the Apocalypse. Drawing on conversation partners as diverse as Tolkien, Dylan, and Bonhoeffer, Mangina has produced a fine, rich commentary, one that not only instructs us about the Apocalypse but also urges us to listen to this vision as never before."--Beverly Roberts Gaventa, Helen H. P. Manson Professor of New Testament Literature and Exegesis, Princeton Theological Seminary"Mangina leads his readers Beatrice-like through the strange topography of the Apocalypse, helping us to rediscover it as a place where heaven traffics with earth, and imaginations conspire to tell the truth of the God of the gospel. Such deft theological reading should embolden preachers in our day to proclaim John's unsettling vision for what it is--a vivid witness to Jesus Christ fit to console, admonish, and summon the church amidst God's remaking of the world."--Philip Ziegler, senior lecturer in systematic theology, University of AberdeenGeneral editor: R.
