"This attractively produced book sits in Princeton University
Press's Lives of Great Religious Books series, and offers an
accessible, thoughtful and wide-ranging review of the afterlife of
the book of Revelation."---Alison M. Jack, Journal for the
Study of The New Testament
"This book is intended for the curious."---Brent Niedergall, Reading Religion
"Beal's Book of Revelation is an exciting read . . . . one gains a richer appreciation to the many ways in which Revelation is embedded within the apocalyptic imagination of culture today"---Rodolfo Galvan Estrada III, Nuncius
As such, The Book of Revelation really is so much more
than A Biography; it's an engaging and
provocative account of a book that even the likes of Augustine and Martin Luther occasionally struggled
to come to terms with.
