Review:
For many Christians Revelation is a closed book. This is a great shame as it is the only book in the Bible with a promise of blessing for those who read it. We find wonderful comfort for Christians as we learn that although Satan seems to be triumphant and the church seems to be defeated the opposite is true. We are more than conquerors through him who loved us.

Taking the view that Revelation consists of seven parallel sections covering the Gospel age, the author draws inspiration from other works especially the unsurpassed More than Conquerors by William Hendriksen.

Mr Ebenezer lucidly explains every section never shirking difficult verses. He avoids the trap of taking the myriad of images too literally. He highlights how many of the visions are rooted in Old Testament scriptures and are best interpreted from that standpoint. Each chapter ends with a note of application. I especially liked how he shows that the book is relevant to the Christian today. This book reads like it was originally a series of talks given to young people. Certainly it is easy to understand and written in a non technical way. If you have never read a commentary on Revelation this book would be an excellent place to start. Highly recommended.
