Description:

"Trafton has produced a clear, understandable, insightful reading of the book of Revelation-not an easy task for a book that has left many readers puzzled and confused. One of the particular strengths of Trafton's commentary is his close attention to the structure of John's work and the internal connections between various passages of the book. Readers will also benefit from Trafton's identification of John's extensive indebtedness to the Hebrew Bible for much of his imagery and ideas." ?Mitchell G. Reddish O.L.
