Grant Osborne’s commentary masterfully interprets the text of Revelation while introducing readers to the perspectives of contemporary scholarship in a clear and accessible manner. In the author’s Preface, the purpose of the volume is stated as, “… not only to provide the reader with exegetical and background information on the text but to help the reader trace the theological threads that tie the book together.”
Dr. Osborne begins with a thorough introduction to Revelation and the many difficulties involved in its interpretation. He then examines larger sections in order to locate and emphasize the writer’s central message. Finally he explores the theological implications and draws conclusions in an accessible pastor-friendly manner. As standard to all of the Baker Exegetical Commentary Series, a comprehensive introduction to Revelation, with the author’s translation for exposition and exegesis, is included.
