Revelation Resources

At church this Sunday we wrap up our 20-part series on the book of Revelation. This book used to terrify and confuse me, but now that I’ve studied what scholars and theologians have to say about it, it has quickly become one of my favorite books of the Bible. The picture it actually paints is incredibly beautiful and deeply convicting—and often backwards from the way we actually perceive it. Here are all the books I generally read through in order to preach this series (which can be listened to on season 8 of the 1208PODCAST). Hit me up if you want any further suggestions or details on any of these books.
