Description

N. T. Wright, the renowned biblical scholar, offers an accessible commentary on the book of Revelation, highlighting God’s hope for believers rather than dwelling on doom and destruction others may focus on.
Often deemed the most enigmatic New Testament book, the book of Revelation overflows with peculiar, intense and occasionally violent imagery. In today’s world of complex cinematic visuals, Revelation might seem like a natural fit, but it isn’t. Despite its challenging nature, we must recognize its importance. This book provides a remarkably clear glimpse into God’s ultimate design for the entire creation. It shows how Jesus the Messiah’s triumph and the resulting costly victory of his followers overcome the powerful evil forces at work, particularly within idolatrous and oppressive political systems. Our modern world is no less complex and perilous than in the late first century, when this book was composed. To be faithful witnesses of God’s love in a world rife with violence, hatred and suspicion, we should grasp John’s magnificent imagery with both our intellects and our hearts.
The biblical text is thoughtfully divided into easily manageable sections, ensuring accessibility for readers of all backgrounds. As you engage with this ancient narrative, you’ll discover its timeless resonance with the spiritual quests of today’s readers, whether they are newcomers or seasoned followers of Jesus.
This expanded edition includes Wright’s updated biblical translation along with a new introduction and a dynamic study guide suitable for both group and individual study. Including helpful summaries and thought-provoking questions, Revelation for Everyone is an invaluable companion for exploring the New Testament with renewed enthusiasm and profound insights.

Reviews

"N.T. Wright is a uniquely gifted communicator. His commentaries in the New Testament for Everyone series make clear the complex and make exciting the deep theological truths. Pastors, students, scholars, and laity have benefitted from these little books. I am delighted that they will remain in print and available for future generations!" - Craig A. Evans, John Bisagno Distinguished Professor of Christian Origins, Houston Christian University

"Wright’s For Everyone series is a gift that feels like lucking into some time on your front porch, sitting at a bar, or walking in the park with an old friend who happens to know all there is to know about the Bible, and who understands plain folks who are curious, and eager, for anecdotes, observations, stories, and fresh insights — and how complex scholarship matters in real life." - James Howell, Senior Pastor, Myers Park United Methodist Church

"For two decades, N. T. Wright’s New Testament for Everyone commentary series has made accessible and spiritually insightful biblical scholarship available to a broad Christian audience and has taken the reader deep into the books of the New Testament. This anniversary edition serves to acknowledge that these commentaries, much like William Barclay’s Daily Study Bible, have stood the test of time. While preachers will have riches to mine, more importantly, so will everyone who seeks a better understanding of the New Testament. The study guide included with these commentaries makes them even more usable for congregational Bible study groups." - Robert D. Cornwall, Minister-at-Large, Christian Church (Disciples of Christ)
