The Oxford Handbook of the Book of Revelation
Edited by Craig Koester
- Fills a gap in the study of the most divergently interpreted book in the New Testament
- Features thirty essays from leading scholars around the world
- Divided into sections on Literary Features, Social Setting, Theology and Ethics, History of Reception and Influence, and Currents in Interpretation
The Book of Revelation holds a special fascination for both scholars and the general public. The book has generated widely differing interpretations, yet Revelation has surprisingly not been the focus of many single-volume reference works. The Oxford Handbook of the Book of Revelation fills a need in the study of this controversial book. Thirty essays by leading scholars from around the world orient readers to the major currents in the study of Revelation. Divided into five sections-Literary Features, Social Setting, Theology and Ethics, History of Reception and Influence, and Currents in Interpretation-the essays identify the major lines of interpretation that have shaped discussion of these topics, and then work through the aspects of those topics that are most significant and hold greatest promise for future research.
