Revelation of Jesus Christ - 2nd Edition
Commentary on the Book of Revelation
by Ranko Stefanovic
$ 39.99

E-book version(s) available:

This verse-by-verse commentary offers a text-focused and Christ-centered approach to the book of Revelation. Appropriate for personal study and as a college and seminary text, this volume provides both in-depth notes and lay-oriented exposition for use by scholars, students, pastors, and laypeople. An ever-increasing interest in the prophecies of the Apocalypse has resulted in deeper understandings which are introduced in this updated edition.

Ranko Stefanovic is professor of New Testament at the Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary at Andrews University in Berrien Springs, Michigan. He holds a Ph.D. degree from Andrews University and is a well-loved teacher, popular speaker, and author of scholarly articles.

"This commentary provides the reader with a careful study of the text that lays bare its powerful connections of Revelation to the Old and New Testaments and to the historical context of its first audience. No reader will come away from the book empty handed but will gain fresh insight into the message and theology of the book and a renewed sense of faith and hope in the Jesus of Revelation."

Felix Cortez, Ph.D., Associate Professor of New Testament Studies
University of Montemorelos

"In his commentary on the book of Revelation, Ranko Stefanovic has provided a scholarly study of one of the most intriguing books of the Bible. His command of the biblical languages and his vast knowledge of Scripture are evident throughout the book. Of particular interest is his historicist approach in the interpretation of Revelation and his desire to show how events in history and prophecies are interrelated. Students of the Bible will find his commentary a valuable source of information and insights."

Denis Fortin, Ph.D., Dean, Professor of Theology
Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary, Andrews University

"A must-read glimpse of the significance of Jesus Christ and His Cross for the church in the world through the entire Christian history. In this revised edition, Stefanovic adds to his widely-regarded original work enriching perspectives that anchor Revelation's prophetic character squarely in Christian history as the arena in which the struggle between Christ and Satan both unfolds and climaxes. His readable passage-by-passage commentary will long offer theological and spiritual resources for any serious student of Scripture's last book that speaks so clearly to our day."

Larry Lichtenwalter, Ph.D., Senior Pastor
Village Seventh-day Adventist Church, Berrien Springs, Michigan
Adjunct professor, Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary, Andrews University

"Ranko Stefanovic has provided us a comprehensive and up-to-date commentary on the Revelation of John from a historicist perspective. In this second revised edition that perspective becomes more focused and better articulated. All those interested in apocalyptic literature should take advantage of the helpful content of this new edition."

Alberto R. Timm, Ph.D., Rector of the Latin-American Adventist Theological Seminary
