About-

To read Revelation for meaning today we need to recognize and accept that the Christian community itself has often become the wearer of Babylon's Cap of oppression. This is a reading of Revelation that seeks to hear the voices of postcolonial pain, while never pretending to be a postcolonial analysis.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Michael Godfrey offers insightful ways of interpreting the visions of John of Patmos, informed by our Australasian context. It is refreshing to read a commentary earthed in antipodean soils and cultures. In Babylon's Cap, he views the text through the lens of contemporary social reflection and illustrates his reading with an insightful selection of literary, political, and social allusions, many of which will be immediately recognized as a 'southern view.'"
--Christopher Honore, St. John's College

"This is a book of rare compassion, at once scholarly, deeply personal, eclectic, and enjoyable. It opens up a text that most Christian readers would find opaque and impenetrable. And it invites us, as Godfrey says in his opening pages, to 'dream a different dream, to transport us to a different story.'"
--Lisa Emerson, Massey University
