Another key to understanding the book of Revelation, a very important key, is to accept the plain sense meaning of each passage. Even if you don’t understand it, the best rule of thumb is to just accept the plain sense meaning. My Golden Rule of Interpretation that I use throughout the Bible from beginning to end, whether it’s prophecy or not, is this: If the plain sense makes sense, don’t look for any other sense, or you will end up with nonsense. Because I realize that prophetic literature contains symbols, I don’t like to use the term, literal interpretation. Another example is found in Revelation 11 where it says that during the Tribulation two great witnesses of God will testify for three and a half years. They will perform mighty miracles and then be killed by the Antichrist. Their bodies will lie in the streets of Jerusalem for three days, and it says all the people of the world will look upon them.

The book of Revelation has long intrigued, puzzled and even frightened its readers. Surely it is the most misunderstood book in the Bible. And some faulty interpretations of Revelation are so entrenched in the consciousness of Christians that they are regarded as "gospel truth" and provide riveting plot lines for end-time fiction. But behind the ancient multimedia show that is Revelation lies a message both simple and profound. It is told in a language and grammar of faith that was clearly understood by its first Christian audience. Much as a music video would scarcely have been understood by first-century citizens, though it is immediately understood by youthful audiences today, so we are puzzled by and misread Revelation. Paul Spilsbury has studied Revelation in the company of its best interpreters, those who have taken the time to enter the minds of the first-century Christians for whom it was originally written. And what has he found? Within the central images of a throne, a lamb and a dragon lies the answer-- the gospel clearly proclaimedthe glory of God awesomely illuminedthe work of Christ memorably embodiedthe nature of evil hauntingly disclosed Here is a guide that will help us hear Revelation speak, once again inspiring grateful worship and calling us to costly discipleship.

Excellent overview of a complicated book (Revelation) for both a lay reader and those who pastoring. Speaks to the current cultural rejection of Christian values and Biblical teachings. A grasp of what St. John is reveling about who the Lamb is and how we are to respond to His Lordship is vital to our Christian life, this book opens up that understanding.

So grateful for this perspective on the book of Revelation. I grew up in a "doomsday"-ish type of home where we lived in fear of the "end times". So glad for an interpretation that makes so much more sense. This book challenged and inspired me. I'll never read the book of Revelation again!

This short work introduces the reader to another approach to the book of Revelation. It is refreshing because it is based upon a symbolic interpretation. Symbols from the Old Testatment appear in Revelation. Spilsbury uses them to present an interpretaion which views Revelation as not a book of detailed prophecy but one in which the symbols stand for the Church age and the struggle all Christians face. This short work does not fully cover all the questions it raises but opens up a new way of thinking. It is a fast read that left me wanting more.

I have searched for an easy to follow, easy to understand, book explaining the Book of Revelations. This is it! Very helpful. The symbolism and hard to understand verses that we encounter while reading the Bible are broken down and explained in a very easy to understand language and format.
