Revelation's Rhapsody: Listening to the Lyrics of the Lamb: How to Read the Book of Revelation
By Dr. Robert Lowery
This excellent resource is designed to help the Bible student study the book of Revelation. It is not a commentary, but a guide to effective, accurate study of this very important book of the Bible.
“For over twenty-five years I have been inspired by the teaching, scholarship, and passion of Dr. Robert Lowery. In fact, I still turn to him for Biblical insights, understanding, and accurate application. He approaches one of the most intimidating books of Scripture with the precision of a surgeon and the love and concern of a close friend. Your intellect will be stretched; your assumptions challenged; and your soul infused with new hope."
Gene Appel, Lead Pastor Willow Creek Community Church
"Popular level guides to the Book of Revelation abound, but most of them either insist that the last book of the Bible is a road map of current events or a source for reconstructing first-century history only. Lowery avoids both of these pitfalls and deftly leads the lay person or college undergraduate down a safe path to interpretive sanity. Enjoyably written and peppered with personal illustrations, this is a welcome addition to a crowded field, and one which clearly stands out from the crowd!"
Craig L. Blomberg, Professor Denver Seminary
"Although the book of Revelation is longer than twenty other New Testament books and comprises six percent of the entire New Testament, it is no doubt the least one read, understood, and applied. But that can change because Robert Lowery brings to today’s readers the interpretative principles used by the first readers. In doing so, Christians in every century and culture can read Revelation with clarity instead of confusion. This handbook is a valuable gold mine of guidelines for all Christians from the pulpit to the pew, from the spiritually mature to the spiritual infant, and from the scholar to the newest student of Scripture. The appendices on the Old Testament allusions in Revelation and a key to select symbols alone are worth the price of the book."
Knofel Staton, Professor Hope International University, Fullerton, CA.
"Dr. Lowery conducts us deeply into the symphony that is Revelation. His wise guidance helps us hear the music coming from the throne room. This deepens our devotion. And then we are drawn to worship in ways that are practical, pastoral and evangelistic. Just as the Lamb leads. I can’t wait to hear volumes two and three!"
Tony Twist, President TCM International Institute, Heiligenkreuz, Austria
