    This was 1 of several books I used while studying Revelation with a friend. While it certainly presented the futurist view with passion and diligence, I found it lacked a lot of information that was relevant to understanding the book of Revelation itself. This does do a decent job, though, of explaining a prevalent theology in Evangelical circles. Another critique I had is that the questions were somewhat redundant, with the author often asking that you list what you just read.

Another critique I had is that the questions were somewhat redundant, with the author often asking that you list what you just read. Some questions did call upon the reader to think and reflect but the prevalence of the read and quote questions didn't really lend themselves to discussion.

    So glad I did this study. I’d say what’s missing is a map or timetable or both. The real questions Revelation springs to mind are not “clearly” answered - I am not sure there are clear answers to be found - but at least much of the confusing symbolism is tackled here. Where are we today in relation to this prophecy? I would say the way the book talks about global systems and global communication could only be possible now that we have the technology we have. That alone inspires me to share the g So glad I did this study. I’d say what’s missing is a map or timetable or both. The real questions Revelation springs to mind are not “clearly” answered - I am not sure there are clear answers to be found - but at least much of the confusing symbolism is tackled here. Where are we today in relation to this prophecy? I would say the way the book talks about global systems and global communication could only be possible now that we have the technology we have. That alone inspires me to share the good news more with friends who don’t know enough about the Nature of God and the reason for Jesus yet. There is a beautiful picture of John eating a small book that is sweet on the lips but bitter in the stomach. John MacArthur teases out this emotion beautifully - while knowing Jesus is so sweet, knowing that some of my friends do not yet is so sad and bitter. So….Time to get to work for Jesus.

    Detailed and Informative Although I don’t agree with every scriptural interpretation, I love adding more information to cogitate on, and debate with fellow believers. This book is a fantastic resource of verse by verse interpretation and meaning. It’s not meant to be read fast but to be thoughtfully engaged and open to researching detail. Well worth the time spent.

    what an amazing study on Revelation! The commentary and insight the author included was exactly what I needed to fully understand the text. I look forward to using more of his guides like this in the future!

    Excellent in-depth study of Revelation. No chapter is skipped and the study provides ample commentary to dig into the verses. Many cross-references are throughout the book, which I found very helpful to compare passages from both the OT and NT with Revelation prophecies and match things up for more clarity.

    The study itself was okay. I read the Bible chapters out of the AMP version first, then I read a pretty in-depth commentary, and then read each weeks study guide. I got more out of it that way. Just the study guide on its own didn’t get as in-depth for me.

    Great book that makes understanding a difficult book of the Bible much easier. Excellent questions for reflection as well. Recommended.

    Very well written, easy to follow commentary on a very challenging book fo the Bible. I used this as the study guide for a class I taught on the Book of Revelation and it was an excellent resource.

    Excellent overview, but leaned a little too hard on certain interpretations of Scripture (I'm not saying they're wring, I'm saying I'm not just going to take his uncited word for it!)

    This was 1 of 2 books my Bible Study group choose to use in our study of The Book of Revelation. We read for 6 weeks and had 5 group discussions. This book was not our favorite of the 2.

It has a section for further study...questions to ponder...we did not use these.

    Revelation Not the same as the hard bound book, brought book to group and wasn’t able to participate on multiple levels. Still a great study - but just discouraging not to have he same questions and format.
