9780310517405: Revelation: Holy Living in an Unholy World

Revelation: Holy Living in an Unholy World is based upon the premise that John's vision is a profound revelation of God that is clothed in the symbolism of first-century Jewish-Christian apocalyptic literature. But John's message is relevant for vital Christian life in any age. This exposition attempts to interpret Revelation from within the context of its meaning to its original audience. At the same time, however, it recognizes that the vision, though written in the imagery of John's day, is concerned with the ultimate spiritual realities that govern all human existence without regard to any particular period of history. John's vision reveals the dynamics of Christian life in a world whose values, perspectives, and structures are alien and destructive to the wholeness of life in Christ. He sees this in two principal images: New Jerusalem and Fallen Babylon. Throughout the vision, human wholeness (holiness) is undertood to have its source in New Jerusalem, and Fallen Babylon is seen as a realm of existence whose dehumanizing and manipulative dynamics (unholiness) are destructive of human wholeness. The implications for our understanding and experience of the deeper dynamics of Christian life in the present day are staggering. Revelation, perhaps more than any other New Testament book, discloses the deepest dimensions of Christian life and activity in the world. It awakens us to who we are and what we ought to be.
