Series: The Two Horizons New Testament Commentary

The book of Revelation is perhaps the most theologically complex and literarily sophisticated — and also the most sensual — document in the New Testament. In this commentary John Christopher Thomas's literary and exegetical analysis makes the challenging text of Revelation more accessible and easier to understand. Frank Macchia follows up with sustained theological essays on the book's most significant themes and issues, accenting especially the underappreciated place of the Holy Spirit in the theology of Revelation.
Peter Oakes in Journal for the Study of the New Testament
"The Two Horizons idea makes a very worthwhile frame for approaching Revelation. Christians studying this vast and complex text with an eye to theology will value having a body of organized theological reflection included here in this commentary package. Thomas and Macchia make interesting and thoughtful use of the format to produce a commentary that will undoubtedly be a valuable resource for consideration of the depth and breadth of this text."
Religious Studies Review
“Seminary students, pastors, teachers, and laypersons who are interested in the Pentecostal perspective will find this useful alongside less focused commentaries.”
Craig Koester
— Luther Seminary, St. Paul, Minnesota
"This is a welcome addition to recent literature on Revelation. It offers a multidimensional perspective on the book that gives special attention to its literary character and theological dimensions. By bringing the perspectives of a biblical scholar and a systematic theologian together, the commentary serves as an invitation for others to join in the dialogue about the interpretation and significance of Revelation's visionary text."
Robert W. Wall
— Seattle Pacific University and Seminary
"An evocative, provocative theological commentary of first rank. Chris Thomas's fine commentary is informed not only by his fluent reading of the sacred text and its many interpreters but also by his deep commitment to God's people, especially of the Pentecostal communion. Frank Macchia's complementary theological reflections are remarkable for their breadth and incisiveness in reading the church's Scripture and tradition. Theirs is an intellectual achievement for the academy and a magisterial gift to the church."
