The Vision of Hope in Revelation
Despite gallons of ink spilled and hours of movies made on the book of Revelation, it remains one of the most misunderstood books of Scripture. But Scott Duvall has good news for the discouraged reader--you don't have to figure out a complicated string of timelines and political theories to understand the heart of God's message to his people in Revelation.
Taking a thematic approach to Revelation, Duvall helps you focus on the vision of hope Revelation provides believers by exploring the biblical themes of God, worship, the people of God, the Holy Spirit, our mission, the Lamb of God, judgment, perseverance, and more, allowing you to understand and apply the message of Revelation--right here, right now.
If the last book of the Bible is still a mystery to you, or if your knowledge of it is limited to what you've read in novels or seen in movies, get ready for an eye-opening, faith-strengthening read.
The book of Revelation has always intrigued me, since people have found so many different ways to interpret it over the years. It can often seem confusing or scary when discussed, so I like to read about it when I have the chance (William Hendricksen’s More Than Conquerors from a couple months ago is one example) and eagerly took the opportunity to read J. Scott Duvall’s The Heart of Revelation: Understanding the 10 Essential Themes of the Bible’s Final Book. Duvall uses his book to highlight the encouraging themes woven throughout the book of Revelation and show its relevance for Christians today. I really enjoyed the perspective Duvall offers Revelation and highly recommend it. It’s another beneficial book for Christian readers.
Thanks to Baker Book Bloggers, I received a copy of The Heart of Revelation and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
