Should Christians be embarrassed by the book of Revelation?

The Revelation of John has long confused and disturbed readers. In The Apocalypse of John among Its Critics, leading experts in Revelation confront the book’s difficulties. Each chapter wrestles honestly with a question raised by the book’s critics—was John a misogynist? Does Revelation delight in violence? Can the book even be understood?

Engaging deeply with Revelation’s difficulties helps the reader understand the book’s message—and respond rightly. The book of Revelation does not need to be avoided or suppressed. It contains words of life.

Contributors include Alan S. Bandy, Gregory K. Beale, Rob Dalrymple, Dana M. Harris, Dave Mathewson, Michael Naylor, Ian Paul, Alexander E. Stewart, Külli Tõniste, and Mark Wilson.

Praise for The Apocalypse of John among Its Critics

Every scholar and serious student of the Apocalypse should read this volume carefully, even if (especially if!) they start with different perspectives.

—Michael J. Gorman, author of Reading Revelation Responsibly

With clarity, expertise, and grace the authors address the controversies and answer the questions that modern critics lob at John and his apocalypse. This worthy study should be part of everyone’s Revelation library.

—Michael Kuykendall, Gateway Seminary

Some readers may not be aware that Revelation is often attacked for being violent, anti-Jewish, anti-women, revengeful, and so on. The essays in this volume respond wisely and winsomely to such objections and to many more relevant issues in interpreting the book.

—Thomas R. Schreiner, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
