"The book of Revelation is, I fear, a very neglected book. Its symbolism belongs to the first century, not to our own age," says Leon Morris in the preface to his commentary on Revelation.
Here he explains the significance of the symbolism and shows the bearing of the message of Revelation on the problems of the day in which it was written.The original, unrevised text of this volume has been completely retypeset and printed in a larger, more attractive format with the new cover design for the series.These Tyndale volumes are designed to help readers understand what the Bible actually says and what it means. The introduction to each volume gives a concise but thorough description of the authorship, date, and historical background of the biblical book under consideration. The commentary itself examines the text section by section, drawing out its main themes. It also comments on individual verses and deals with problems of interpretation.
The late Leon Morris was Principal of Ridley College, Melbourne, Australia. He contributed to the Pillar New Testament Commentary (8 vols.) with his volumes on The Gospel according to Matthew and The Epistle to the Romans
