When first published, this volume on Revelation by Robert H. Mounce was widely praised as a standard commentary on the Apocalypse. In this new edition, now based on the text of the NIV and Nestle-Aland, Mounce has revised and expanded his work to reflect more than twenty additional years of mature thought on Revelation and to bring his work up to date with the latest scholarship. As in the original edition, Mounce here engages seriously with the various approaches to interpretation and with the conventions common to apocalyptic literature. In affirming more directly his own reading of the Apocalypse, Mounce steers a middle course between an extreme literalism and a highly imaginative subjectivism, believing this to be the way the ancient text spoke to the first-century churches to whom it was addressed - and the way it still speaks to us today.

-- The Bible Today"This new edition of the commentary retains the virtues of the first: a well-balanced, traditional approach to the interpretation of Revelation, with a wealth of bibliographical references and a thoughtful, well-written commentary on the literary, historical, and theological significance of the text."-- The Clergy Journal"This critical commentary is from the evangelical slant, meticulous at every point. . . Mounce...provides multiple interpretations of the text of Revelation. Yet he also carefully steers a middle course between wooden literalism and undomesticated subjectivism. These features give features of widely divergent theological stances room to move effectively within the commentary. . . For pastors and preachers in search of a solid critical commentary on Revelation, this one is worth the money and time spent on it."-- Religious Studies Review"The commentary is clearly written and argued and should be on the shelf of any serious student of Revelation." -- "The Bible Today""This new edition of the commentary retains the virtues of the first: a well-balanced, traditional approach to the interpretation of Revelation, with a wealth of bibliographical references and a thoughtful, well-written commentary on the literary, historical, and theological significance of the text."-- "The Clergy Journal""This critical commentary is from the evangelical slant, meticulous at every point. . .
