Amidst the fervor of popular apocalyptic books and unfounded “end times” theology, deSilva has written an excellent book that will help readers thoughtfully and properly approach the book of Revelation. This is a truly unique book that studies Revelation by (1) stating the context in which it was written (Roman Asia in the first century), (2) noting why John wrote what he did to the Church, and (3) powerfully applying John’s message to the Church today. It is concisely written and carries a genuine spiritual message.
David deSilva received a Master of Divinity degree from Princeton Theological Seminary, and completed a doctorate in New Testament studies at Emory University.
