About-

Not a reference tool, this unique work is a teaching-learning guide to studying the Book of Revelation. The focus is on showing how rather than on telling that. Charts followed by leading questions and statements help both faculty and students to see how St. John adopted and adapted his sacred texts (as well as Jewish and Greco-Roman resources) in light of his convictions about and experience of Jesus. Noticing the dominance of words and themes leads one to discover the primary concerns of the Author and his readers. Observing how John internally arranged his visions provides a clue as to the kind of work it is and how it was meant to function.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"An indispensable tool for teachers and students of the Book of Revelation! Crafted over many years of teaching this sacred text, Lemcio's charts are designed for classroom use and as guides for student learning rather than for their indoctrination into the one and only way of interpreting Revelation. Of particular importance is his interest in a theological reading of Revelation, set rightly within the context of the entire biblical canon. These are charts, then, that will help facilitate a student's conversation with all of Scripture, apropos of Revelation's role as Scripture's concluding and capstone witness. I recommend Lemcio's book enthusiastically for its use in the college or seminary classroom, and for any congregational setting in which a clearheaded and practical understanding of this magisterial book of Scripture is targeted."
