Bible prophecy and a little history are the vital ‘book ends’ of the word of God. Genesis gives us the commencement, and Revelation the consummation of all things. Studies of both books are sadly neglected. Genesis begins with creation and Revelation ends with a new creation, new heaven, and a new earth. Correct interpretation of both books establishes the whole weight behind the Revelation and the purposes of God.
Edward Thomas takes the Book of Revelation literally and prophetically, allowing for limited symbolism, which is often explained in the text. This is a well-constructed study. How refreshing to read a commentary on Revelation which is taking literal prophetic truth and presenting it in such a way that every reader can understand plainly.
I heartily recommend this presentation. May it be read by many and be a great help in understanding the Book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ.
