About-

This commentary is the first major work on the book of Revelation in many years that expounds the historicist interpretation. The historicist school of interpretation was the dominant approach from Reformation times through most of the nineteenth century. The reasons for the current disaffection are too complex to address in a few words, but it is the author's conviction that from the standpoint of sound principles of biblical hermeneutics, the historicist inerpretation is still the most creditable approach for an accurate understanding of this, the last book of the Bible and the final prophecy of Jesus.

Endorsements & Reviews-

Professor Collins has crafted a masterful yet readable contribution to New Testament scholarship. His faithful historicist view resonates with that of the original reformation theologians and specifies events in unfolding world history for corroboration. As the ideal introduction for the uninitiated or an exhaustive compendium for the defender of the historicist perspective, this volume is the definitive reference on the historicist interpretation of the Revelation of Jesus Christ. --Sidney T. Bradley, Executive and Academic Dean, Professor of Pastoral Counseling and Psychology, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary

You've been waiting for this thorough, interesting and readable book! For Christians confused by the popular blending of prophecy with clever fiction, Professor Collins offers a better way. In dialogue with the most knowledgeable commentators on the book of Revelation, he clarifies the book's message and points to its fulfilment in the actual events of world history. In the process he demonstrates the continuing value of the Protestant Reformer's approach to the Bible's predictions. This long overdue book will take its place as the best contemporary presentation of the historicist approach to interpreting the prophecy of Scripture. And I commend it to you for its exciting and informative challenge. --David A. Dean, Professor Emeritus, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary
