The book of Revelation certainly generates more anxiety amongst Christians than any other book in the Bible. A 'happy hunting ground' for cults and sects, it is often the 'slough of despond' for the orthodox believer. Yet its opening words are 'Blessed is he who reads aloud the words of the prophesy, and blessed are those who hear, and who keep what is written therein'.
Revelation Unwrapped sets out to show how Revelation may be understood without resorting to fanciful interpretations. Instead of speculations about future world history, we see how John's vision uses familiar Old Testament imagery in a fresh way to make sense of Christian experience in every age.
And as the message of Revelation is unwrapped, so the blessing it promises becomes available to the ordinary reader equipped with nothing more exotic than the Bible itself.
