This book has enjoyed many printings from Zondervan since its original publication in 1998! It has been published in two additional languages, Portuguese and Spanish. I have received numerous personal notes of commendation for my contribution in the work. Thank you, customers!
Presents preterist, idealist, progressive and classical dispensationalist views of Revelation. Each presents meaning and flow of Revelation. Highlights and explains significant passages while interacting with the others. M. Pate, Gentry, R. Thomas, S. Hamstra.
"Gentry's chapter alone is worth the price of the book" (Biblical Worldview).
"A short but good presentation. Each essayist presents his view effectively" (Bibliotheca Sacra).
"Although I do not support the Preterist view, this book had a convincing argument for that view" (Internet reviewer).
"Gentry's general preterist treatment of the seals and the fall of Jerusalem in AD 70 is as fascinating as it is illuminating" (C. Marvin Pate, The Writings of John (2012), p. 417)
