In most homiletics courses it is drummed into the aspiring preacher that a text out of context is a pretext. Prof. Dumbrell has sought to set Revelation 21-22 in its widest context in order to provide its fullest meaning. He shows the section is not only an appropriate way of concluding the Book of Revelation, but indeed provides the proper conclusion for the entire Bible. He does this by observing the use of the main literary motifs in the passage. As such this is an important work, being one of the first full-length treatments on the use of motifs. He gives substance to Michael Fishbane's contention (Texts and Texture: Close Readings of Selected Biblical Texts [New York: Schoken Books, 1979]) that recurrent motifs are what gives the Bible its coherence.
