Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0415146410, Paperback)Revelation claims to tell the story of 'what must soon take place', and yet, despite centuries of scholarly research, the order and content of this story has remained one of the greatest mysteries of all time.
Arguing that Revelation was designed to be heard in six separate instalments, A.J.P. Garrow's innovative book suggests a new and orderly understanding of the structure of the story. This development makes possible a new and coherent interpretation of 'what must soon take place'.
According to this study, John discerned a close connection between the present and the End. For today's readers, as for the members of the seven churches, this insight has profound implications for the way in which world events, weekly worship and everyday choices are perceived.

This study seeks a way of understanding Revelation by analysing the structure of the book. Emphasising the context of 'reading aloud' - in installments - Alan Garrow uses the historical circumstances to elucidate the genre of the book.
