Abridgment of an acclaimed scholarly commentary on the Greek text of Revelation

G. K. Beale's monumental New International Greek Testament Commentary volume on Revelation has been highly praised since its publication in 1999. This shorter commentary distills the superb grammatical analysis and exegesis from that tome (over 1,300 pages) into a book more accessible and pertinent to preachers, students, and general Christian readers.

As in the original commentary, Beale views Revelation as an integrated whole, as a conscious continuation of the Old Testament prophetic books, and shows that recognizing Revelation's nearly constant use of Old Testament allusions is key to unlocking its meaning. Interspersed throughout the volume are more than sixty sets of "Suggestions for Reflection" to help readers better grasp the relevance of Revelation to their lives and our world today.

"This `shorter' commentary (at over 500 pages) dwarfs most others — not so much in size as in substance. Beale's `eclectic redemptive-historical idealist view' opens up Revelation's literary flow, spiritual logic, and eschatological message. At last a commentary that actually explains Revelation rather than compounding its complexity."
Thomas R. Schreiner
— Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
"In this volume we are treated to a briefer version of Greg Beale's massive commentary on Revelation, but that work's exegetical depth and theological profundity are still present in the abbreviated volume. No one can afford to preach, teach, or write on Revelation without reading Beale."
Reading Acts
"This shorter commentary on Revelation is a welcome contribution to the ongoing study of the book of Revelation."
New Horizons
"Beale's shorter commentary on Revelation compresses all the treasures of the parent volume in the NIGTC series into a more accessible package. Minus the small font detail, Greek words, and some supporting arguments of the larger commentary, this tightly packed work demonstrates the potency of brevity. . . . An indispensable companion to the larger commentary, offering vital aids for teachers and students alike."
"Greg Beale has pared down his impressive 1999 Revelation commentary in the NIGTC Series with Revelation: A Shorter Commentary. Much of the technical discussion is removed, and reference is made to the English text. The significant attention to Old Testament allusions and background remain. If you do not have the larger work (or have gotten lost in it), this shorter work is a must-have."
