Difficult to interpret phrases
Major textual difficulties
Use of Persian and Greek words
Historical background of Bible events
Past and future fulfillments of specific prophecies

The Revelation of Jesus Christ By John Walvoord A verse-by-verse study of one of the most complex books in the Bible.
Developed from years of teaching, dedicated study, and sound evangelical scholarship, this is a sane and sensible commentary on the book of Revelation.
No other New Testament book evokes the same fascination, produces wider divergence of interpretation, and is less understood than the book of the Revelation. The Bible was intended to be understood, the author maintains, and Revelation is no exception. Here then is a book for those who have been puzzled by the seals, trumpets, woes, plagues, and vials, for those who do not understand who the beast, the false prophet, and the great red dragon represent. There is also excellent analysis for those who want to know the meaning for our day of the letters to the seven churches.
Walvoord recognizes Revelation's symbolic features, but points out that much of it can be interpreted literally. He defends the premillennial position, but at crucial points considers other views - the allegorical and historical, and the amillennial and postmillennial approaches.
With more than 200,000 copies in print, The Revelation of Jesus Christ has earned its place as a highly-regarded exposition and approach to the book of Revelation from a dispensational viewpoint.
In comparing The Revelation of Jesus Christ to Ryrie's Revelation, you will find the Ryrie work to be a competent and concise primary resource for understanding and teaching. The more-detailed presentation of The Revelation of Jesus Christ will expand your exegetical knowledge of Revelation's themes, prophesies and related doctrinal positions. A $21.95 value
Jesus Christ Our Lord By John Walvoord Contemporary in analysis and defense of orthodox Christology in the face of modern liberalism
Of the life and work of Jesus, the apostle John said, "Even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written" (John 21:25). Acknowledging the size of the task, as well as its importance, John Walvoord has written this systematic presentation of the Person and work of Christ from eternity past to eternity future.
Beginning with an analysis of modern trends in the study of Christology, Dr. Walvoord shows that "contemporary Christology has in many respects confused rather than clarified the extended revelation of the Word of God."
Analyzing the Old Testament, he shows Christ in history, typology, and prophecy. Then, in the New Testament, he examines the life and work of the incarnate Christ, including the doctrines of atonement, redemption, propitiation, and reconciliation. This add-on will complement your other Walvoord content with an examination of the present and future work of Christ and the completion of His Kingdom. A $17.95 value

First & Second Thessalonians By Charles Ryrie A powerful verse-by-verse commentary on the Apostle Paul's letters to the Thessalonians
From the author's introduction: "Every once in a while a new book will appear on the market with a title something like this: How I've Changed My Mind. The various chapters then detail the ways in which the author's thinking has changed (often about important doctrines) throughout his lifetime. The apostle Paul would never have written such a book. Here's why we can be certain of that.
Although among the earliest of Paul's letters (only Galatians is earlier), 1 and 2 Thessalonians in no way exhibit undeveloped or immature thinking. Paul had been a Christian for seventeen or eighteen years by the time he wrote 1 Thessalonians. His theology was fully developed in his mind and tested in his ministry before he wrote these letters to the Thessalonians.
These epistles are like finely cut gems. They reflect the depths of theological thought, especially in the area of future things. They mirror the pattern of teaching that the apostle used with new Gentile converts. A $12.95 value
