In most cases the treatment of the book of Revelation is not very deep, with more ancillary information which may or may not be so relevant, than actually digging into the most meaningful parts of the text. May be a place to start, but hopefully not the last, and probably not the best read for someone really wanting to know what the relevant message of the book of Revelation is for us today, in these end times.
