Revelation: A Guided Tour of the Apocalypse
From the Back Cover
Revelation is easily the most widely-misunderstood and confusing book in the entire Bible. And for many, it’s the scariest!
Is Revelation a detailed map of political world events that we are currently experiencing? Or is it a symbolic allegory describing the general triumph of God over evil? Or… is it something else entirely?
Ironically, Revelation was originally written to make things clear to 1st century Christians!
In this DVD course James-Michael Smith leads viewers through the Book of Revelation, focusing on the people and events to whom the book was originally written. Only when one sees what Revelation said to the original hearers are we then prepared to step back and see what this mysterious and misunderstood apocalyptic text has to say to the people of God throughout the ages.
And–perhaps just as important–what it doesn’t say.
