Product Description

This impressive book succeeds in opening up the Book of Revelation to clearer understanding. Though it is scholarly and comprehensive, the text is not ponderous or difficult to read. The format leads the reader along nicely and makes its points in a logical and concise manner.

Erik Brandt also provides valuable and extensive historical background that greatly clarifies the Revelator's purpose and intent in writing to the Saints of the seven ancient branches of the Church. The fanciful imagery and obscure metaphors that have traditionally made the Revelation difficult to interpret are explained in easy-to-understand language. To further illuminate John's meaning, the author also draws extensively upon the writings of the prophets as found in the Bible, Book of Mormon, Doctrine & Covenants, and Pearl of Great Price. — Richard Peterson, Book Reviewer

Elder Bruce R. McConkie answered the important question about our ability and obligation to study and understand the Revelation of John in preparation for the Second Coming of the Lord:

“Certainly why else did the Lord reveal it? The common notion that it deals with beasts and plagues and mysterious symbolisms that cannot be understood is just not true. Most of the book is clear and plain and should be understood by the Lord's people.”
