In this now-classic exposition of Revelation, first published in 1972, George Eldon Ladd offers a clear, engaging, and insightful reading of the Apocalypse that is ideal for the pulpit, classroom, or personal study.

In a brief introduction Ladd discusses the subject of authorship, the date and historical setting of Revelation, and the various methods of interpretation (preterist, historical, idealist, and futurist) that have been applied to the book throughout history. He then offers an analytical outline of Revelation’s structure and his verse-by-verse commentary, which reflects a historic premillennial perspective. The entire work is marked by Ladd’s sensitivity to the needs of both scholars and general readers and by his concern for proclaiming the message of Revelation for our time.

— Christianity Today
“George Eldon Ladd has an amazing ability to explain simply and clearly something that is complex and opaque. He writes on the mysterious apocalypse lucidly, thoroughly, and very readably. . . . A very valuable interpretive aid to laypersons, pastors, and scholars alike.”
— Interpretation
“This study merits several adjectives: careful, thorough, candid, lucid, discriminating. . . . A genuine achievement.”
— Theological Studies
“A balanced and concise verse-by-verse interpretation of the Book of Revelation for the average reader.”
