Description

Bock interprets St John's rich pictorial language, often found harsh and mysterious, showing that John is dealing with the universal problems of spiritual development.

This is not just a detailed commentary on the Apocalypse, but a profound and encouraging examination of human needs in today's world. It shows how we can read the Book of Revelation to understand Christ's position as leader through danger in the present and the future.

Reviews

'It is heartening to see a fresh edition of Bock's insightful book on the Apocalypse, some 66 years after it was first given as lectures amid the din of war in 1940/41. These were apocalyptic times and Bock's language has a compelling urgency and dynamic well fitted to the many themes he develops. Since that time, it has stood as one of a line of monumental works revealing a renewed theology for our times. If Bock had only written this one book, it would have been sufficient to establish him as one of the greatest Christian thinkers of modern times.'
-- Christopher Cooper, Perspectives, June 2006
