Of course, the book of Revelation. Many people ignore it because it seems unreal and unrelated to Christian living.

Of course, the book of Revelation. Others see it as a fascinating enigma, and they propose a variety of schemes to answer every symbolic reference.

The book of Revelation has always intimidated me, but I really like the author's clear explanations of the text. He goes through it section by section and makes the book understandable. The point of Revelation according to Stefanovic is to understand that even though the future may hold some scary things, God is in control. I like how he doesn't try to explain exactly what all the futuristic prophecies mean specifically, but gives the broad picture, realizing that prophecy is best understood in hindsight.

I particularly like the fact that Dr Stefanovic is able to use his knowledge of Greek - but, more than a knowledge of Greek, an understanding of Greek idiom - to infuse the text with heightened meaning. It is good to watch some of the You Tube videos of Ranko Stefanovic lectures, to be imbued with his passion for Jesus as revealed in this final book of the Bible

With commendable reserve, Dr. Smith has restricted himself largely to interpretation by other passages of Scripture which are related to Revelation by actual quotation or by striking parallelism. His painstaking studies of vocabulary and of related ideas make the book valuable to the earnest student of the Bible.

No reader will come away from the book empty handed but will gain fresh insight into the message and theology of the book and a renewed sense of faith and hope in the Jesus of Revelation. Felix Cortez, associate professor of New Testament studies, University of Montemorelos.

The author presents a detailed study of the Book of Revelation emphasizing prophetic themes from the rest of the Bible which find their fulfillment in Revelation. To understand this controversial book, the author explores the many connections between the visions seen by the Apostle John and previous prophetic revelation given to Old Testament prophets such as Daniel, Ezekiel, and others. See the companion Volume 2.

What New Testament book bewilders most Christians? Of course, the book of Revelation. Many people ignore it because it seems unreal and unrelated to Christian living. Others see it as a fascinating enigma, and they propose a variety of schemes to answer every symbolic reference. While fully aware of the various theories of interpretation, Dr. Robbins is primarily concerned in this book with clarifying what the writer was trying to say to his original readers. He provides a practical exposition with little attention given to critical problems. He feels that the basic message is timeless, full of hope and promise in every age. Here is fresh, clear light on a book that has been shrouded by extreme and sometimes fanatic interpreters.

Great Book!

"The Revelation of Jesus Christ: A Commentary on the Book of Revelation" was originally published in 1975 by Broadman Press. Over the past four decades it has not received as much attention as have some of the other commentaries on this book. However, it is on the whole a well-balanced and nonsensationalistic study of the the Apocalypse of John.

Robbins's intent is to interpret the book as it would have been understood by its original audience. On the whole, he does a good job of this. Adopting an exegetical approach, he presents a verse-by-verse exposition of the text. His view of the millennium is, as far as I can tell, amillennial.

Robbins' text is easy to understand and one that I would recommend for an introductory student. The more advanced student might find some of his reasoning a bit superficial. Moreover, because he wrote when he did, his work does not take account of some of the more recent scholarship in Revelation studies, particularly those works written from a preterist perspective.

One other weakness is the introductory material, which is rather brief and somewhat superficial. For example, he devotes just one short paragraph (five lines) to the question of the date of the writing of Revelation. His argument for late date of composition (during the reign of Domitian) consists of the assertion that both the external and the internal evidence favors this. However, he doesn't give any substantial arguments for these assertions.

I can heartily recommend this book. It is easily the best book on Revelation that I have ever read. Unfortunately, I gave my copy away several years ago I cannot remember everything that I loved about it. I will say that Robbins' theology on last things is amillinenial or that God will work out the end of time in His own time and way. I once met Dr. Robbins at the church that I was called to preach at. He told me that he had met old men who had not answered the call to preach when they were young and that they had lived to regret it. This is an important piece of wisdom that I have lived to appreciate and treasure.
