The Book of Revelation shouldn't just pique your interest, but transform your life. This volume takes you through the whole scope of St. John's vision to help you see the big picture. Revelation can't be taken literally, of course. It's symbolic, but that doesn't mean it isn't true. The meaning of Revelation begins to come clear when the symbols are probed and understood. You can't produce a clear chronology of the End Times, however, by stringing Revelation's visions in order like beads on a necklace. The timing of the tribulation and rapture are, frankly, only minor themes in the biblical text. While the author is pre-millennial, mid-trib, we'll explore all the popular views. Ultimately, Revelation must be understood on its own terms. The purpose isn't to take some dogmatic position on controversial issues, but to help you understand and heed the message of Revelation. It'll shake you out of your spiritual lethargy and stimulate you to be a faithful witness no matter what you face in coming days. This volume consists of eight lessons, each with five or six discussion questions to help you explore the major issues, as well as seven charts and graphics to help you or the group you lead grasp the panorama of Revelation. The study can be used for personal enrichment, by small groups and classes, and by teachers and preachers for sermon preparation.
