Revelation (NIV Expositors Bible Commentaries) by Alan F. Johnson

It was written by twenty-nine eminent scholars of the day who were also full-time preachers. These writers also represent every important branch of Protestantism. The Expositor's Bible may thus be regarded as an exposition. It conclusively demonstrates the hearty agreement of all thoughtful persons on the profound realities and essentials of the Christian Faith

Premillennialism in Christian eschatology, . the study of the future, is the belief that Jesus Christ will physically return to the earth at the end of the Church age yet prior to the 1,000-year period described in Revelation 20:1-10, which is interpreted literally.

Alan F. Johnson (PhD, Dallas Theological Seminary) is Emeritus Professor of New Testament and Christian Ethics and Emeritus Director of the Center for Applied Christian Ethics (CACE) at Wheaton College. He and his wife Marie reside in Warrenville, Illinois and have four daughters and nineteen grandchildren. 6 people found this helpful. Clear and concise, Dr. Johnson believes the text and bases his conclusions on it.

Revelation: Alan F. Johnson (paperback volume). Robert W. Yarbrough, author of 1-2 Timothy and Titus in PNTC series and 1-3 John in the BECNT series. Studying God’s Word is not a dispassionate intellectual exercise. It engages us personally. David deSilva, author of Galatians in the NICNT series and Hebrews in the SRC series.

Certain upgrades are a blessing, others seem less helpful. Particularly unhelpful has been Thomas Thatcher's Johanine Epistles. 2 people found this helpful. I am very appreciative of the book introductions talking about the authorship, dating, key points, as well as other extra-biblical information that in many ways is crucial to understanding the purpose of the text.

One of America's fine Bible expositors from Moody Bible Institute's extension department supplies another of his lucid works. He has volumes on other books of the Bible. He often connects the themes of passages in Jeremiah with NT verses, and is skeptical about redaction that remodels the book in a Deuteronomistic pattern. Some criticize him for a highly individualistic translation in many passages and his pleading that the original text was the way his emendations propose.

New International Version. Revelation 19. Threefold Hallelujah Over Babylon’s Fall. 1After this I heard what sounded like the roar of a great multitude in heaven shouting: Hallelujah! Salvation and glory and power belong to our God, 2 for true and just are his judgments. He has condemned the great prostitute who corrupted the earth by her adulteries. He has avenged on her the blood of his servants. NIV : Revelation 19. You can help close the Bible gap in rural China.

Another absolutely stellar offering in the E-Book world for Christians interested in the deeper study and understanding of God's word. I highly recommend all of these commentaries, but I am especially keen about this one, because in today's secular oriented world this is one of the most misunderstood and misinterpreted books of the entire Bible. God says what he means and means what he says. The bible said it, I believe it, and that settles it for me !
I enjoyed reading this book, even though some sections were hard to understand. I feel Mr. Johnson provided more than one interpretation which kept the readers questioning every aspect of Revelation.
I received this book on time and it was in the condition specified. It's a great book and I was able to use it to write my paper.
There are only two modern commentaries on Revelation that stand out from the crowd, one is the classic by Mounce, now in its second edition and the other is Alan Johnson's, now thankfully in its own single volume and not part of EBC vol 12. Alan Johnson's volume is suitable for students, pastors, teachers and well read layman. He makes sufficient reference to the Greek to bring out the meaning without cluttering up the page. There are additional footnotes for scholars. His style is concise and precise and he is prepared to go against the crowd on the interpretation of Ch 17, Babylon is not just Rome. At its current price it is a bargain, you cannot go wrong.
I have a large library of commentaries on Revelation as I have written one myself. There are many commentaries available on Revelation in the English speaking world and Alan Johnson's is one of the better ones. Not as large as Mounce or Beale but it has enough information to make it useful for the student, pastor or well read layman. It is very readable. It was originally part of vol 12 of the Expositor's Bible Commentary series. Now it is available as a single volume. For its price I would say it is a bargain.

Note: Among 7 recent scholarly commentaries on Revelation Johnson is the 15th most cited author.
When I preached through the Book of Revelation, Alan Johnson's commentary quickly became a "go-to" reference for me, along with Mounce. Clear and concise, Dr. Johnson believes the text and bases his conclusions on it. It is exceptionally practical as well, something that is often missed. The preacher will find it a very valuable resource, and the student will find that Johnson clears through the clutter that often obscures Revelation. I heartily recommend this book.
