Product Description


...[Reading Revelation] provides many fresh insights. What Campbell has offered, is a complete and coherent biblical theology of Revelation, undoubtedly fruitful to use for theological students, teachers and researchers, so that contemporary readers become competent readers... (Rob Van Houwelingen European Journal of Theology 2013-04-00)

‘Gordon Campbell’s impressive study […] is a masterful interpretation, detailed and rigorous […]’ (Ian Boxall The Expository Times, Volume 125, No.2, November 2013)

Campbell's approach is to seek an understanding of Revelation from within the text itself, rooted as it is in both the Old and New Testament Scriptures. [...] He discerns a number of themes running through Revelation which bind the book into a coherent literary work rather than a collection of disparate elements or detailed prophecy of the future. (David McKay Reformed Theological Journal, 2013 Issue)

[Reading Revelation] offers fresh understandings of Revelation. Its copious endnotes, rich bibliography, indexes of Revelation passages, other biblical references, ancient Greco-Roman literature, and themes enable the reader to cross-check the meanings of a specific text or a vision or an event. Readers will find this carefully researched work enlightening and rewarding. (Daniel Jeyaraj, Liverpool Hope University Theological Book Review, Vol. 25, No.1, 2013)

W. Gordon Campbell takes a thematic approach in Readng Revelation: God reveals himself; humanity finds itself; and when God and humanity meet. Within these themes, he explores divinity worship, testimony, belonging, and covenant. (Church Times 2014-06-00)
