New in 2008 ... a 13-week study on the last book of the New Testament, Revelation.
The Sunset of Scripture, Hope and Promise From the Isle of Patmos is a simple presentation of the meaning behind the often unfamiliar, sometimes confusing symbols of Revelation. The crucial question when approaching John's vision is, "What did this vision, or this symbol, mean to John's original readers?" He expected them to not only understand, but to interpret his inspired message to them.
With this as our guiding principle, this study will walk the reader through each vision offering a simple explanation of John's meassage. Contrary to the conclusions too often drawn about John's message, the reader will hopefully find that, stripped of the myriad complicated and contradictory interpretations each generation offers, John's message can be clearly seen.
With the penning of these visions the era of inspiration, and the contents of the New Testament came to a close. God WANTS you to understand Revelation, and it is my hope that this simple interpretation will serve as the beginning of a lifelong study of the Bible, and Revelation in particular.
