"The Thrill of Hope" helps believers focus on Revelation in a new light, one of hope and assurance, not doom and gloom.

It is a great book to start reading right before you start reading Revelation and a great book to read as you continue reading Revelation. It helps explain symbolism. It helps with any fear readers might have of reading or studying Revelation. The book talks about Revelations' major theme and gives some history to the times in which John received the revelation. I enjoyed the FAQ sections and the questions at the end of every chapter, which helps readers go deeper (my education background loves that!).

The book isn't as intense a study on Revelation as I wanted, but that was not the authors intent. His intent was to leave readers focusing on the hope that Revelation reveals. The book did that job nicely.

To get to the level of detail that I wanted in my personal study of Revelation, I read "The Thrill of Hope", read Bible and internet commentary, and developed my own list of questions/answers as I studied Revelation. With all of that together, I found my study very well-rounded.

Disclaimer: I received this complementary book from the publisher through BookCrash in exchange for my honest review. ( )
