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 epicentres such as the rapture. In this book, the award-winning author Gordon Fee excavates 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 instalment in the New Covenant Commentary Series we see one of North America's best evangelical exegetes at his very best.

Fee writes lucidly and informally [...] and his explanations are unambiguous; thus the work is easy to read. I would recommend it to students and ministers as an introductory commentary to Revelation. (Julie Woods Reviews in Religion and Theology, Vol.21, No.1, January 2014)
I would recommend Fee as a wonderful companion to the task of reading the text... (Richard Briggs Biblical Studies Bulletin)
This is a book that will prove to be useful for those studying Revelation in depth for the first time. (Donald A. Bullen, Liverpool Hope University Theological Book Review, Vol. 25, No.2, 2013)
One may assume that readers, not of scholarly bent but eager to learn, would welcome these new insights by Fee, ... as a scholar with pastoral and pedagogical sensitivities his intention is to produce material that should be of great value to biblical educators endeavouring to convince literalists that Revelation should be read within historical context and not as a time-line of prophetic fulfilments. (Margaret Mollett Neotestamentica, 49.1 (2015))
