Revelation is a book that many Christians find confusing due to the foreign nature of its apocalyptic imagery. It is a book that has prompted endless discussions about the "end times" with theological divisions forming around epicenters such as the rapture and the millennium. In this book, award winning author Gordon Fee attempts to excavate the layers of symbolic imagery and provide an exposition of Revelation that is clear, easy to follow, convincing, and engaging. Fee shows us how John's message confronts the world with the Revelation of Jesus Christ so that Christians might see themselves as caught up in the drama of God's triumph over sin, evil, and death. Fee draws us into the world of John and invites us to see the world through John's eyes as the morbid realities of this world have the joyous realities of heaven cast over them. In this latest installment in the New Covenant Commentary Series we see one of North America's best evangelical exegetes at his very best.… (more)

Gordon Fee's popular commentary on Revelation contains no shortage of insightful vignettes. However, reading it has been a distinctly unsatisfying experience, in that Fee maintains his comments at a facile level. He reiterates his marvels at John's (Revelation's author) literary skills at various points, probably more frequent than the word "marvel" denotes. Yet, at critical areas and on more controversial subjects (such as the thousand years in Ch. 20), Fee is rather reticent in providing definite answers. Still, one would take assuring comfort from an eminent Biblical scholar as Fee for his penchant use of colocation "almost certainly".
