Among the true classics on the book of Revelation is R. C. Trench's Commentary on the Epistles to the Seven Churches of Asia (1886), a detailed study on the first three chapters of Revelation. Richard Chenevix Trench (1807-86) was an Anglican minister and scholar of rare abilities, able to combine a critical-exegetical analysis of the Greek text of the New Testament with the expository insight of a gifted pastor. This has made his works on the New Testament popular and widely-read among Christians of all ages and backgrounds even today. His Commentary on Revelation 1-3 works extensively from the Greek text, carefully examining its usage, along with comparative study of the historical-cultural background, with many references to the Early Church Fathers and Jewish writings of the period (all linked whenever possible in our electronic version). This is landmark work of exegesis which belongs in the library of every pastor, scholar, and student of the New Testament.
As a BONUS item, we include Trench's more popular devotional work, Christ the Desire of All Nations.
