Customer Questions & Answers for
B&H Books Revelation - eBook

Revelation is an exceptionally intimidating book for most ministers and this problem is compounded by the abusive ends to which the book has often been put. Yet, as Paige Patterson argues the people who sit in the pews are curious about Revelation, and it is the minister's or church leader's job to address that curiosity with courage and what Patterson calls "moxie".

To aid this endeavor, Patterson's Revelation in the New American Commentary series tackles the text by unpacking it pericope-by-pericope. Each pericope is easily accessible, makes arguments based on the Greek text, but presents those discussions using only the English. While the original languages are always useful, they are not necessary to access this commentary.

While primary attention is given to the text, Paige does discuss scholarly matters. These, typically, are not of the technical exegetical type but rather deal in the theology derived from the text of Revelation. Thus, Paige's work makes an exegetical argument but does so to posit a theological stance about the book while leaving room for critical interaction from the reader. Paige's work also interacts critically with historic interpreters, drawing on them were useful while discerningly avoiding overly eccentric readings of Revelation. Therefore, Patterson's work is a mid-level, non-technical commentary accessible to teaching laity, ministers, and members with some background in formal biblical studies.

Features of the NAC series:
  • For the minister or Bible student who wants to understand and expound the Scriptures
  • Commentary based on the New International Version (NIV) of Scripture
  • The NIV text printed in the body of the commentary
  • Sound scholarly methodology that reflects capable research in the original languages
  • Interpretation that emphasizes the theological unity of each book and of Scripture as a whole
  • Readable and applicable exposition
