The book of Revelation is at once familiar and strange,

full of fearsome warning and beautiful promise. It is a

letter, a prophecy, an apocalypse, and a spiral of visions,

a type of ancient literature no longer written. How can

Christians today understand the book of Revelation

and its meaning and implications for our lives? Mark

Braaten, a pastor and scholar who has spent years

studying and teaching Revelation, began this book

when his father asked him for a good introduction to

the difficult text. Not wanting to hand his dad a complicated

theological textbook or a popularized book that

might misread or misapply the message of Revelation,

Braaten set out to write his own guide. Come, Lord

Jesus is Braaten's response to his father's request, and

it answers the many questions that arise when modern

readers enter this ancient text. In this book readers will

come to understand the first-century context in which

Revelation was written--and readers will join the holy

choir in looking forward to the fulfillment of God's

plan, offering our own invitation: "Come, Lord Jesus."

New Edition with Discussion Questions and a Critique of the Rapture

How can Christians today understand the book of Revelation and its meaning and implications for our lives? Mark Braaten, a pastor and scholar who has spent years studying and teaching Revelation, answers the many questions that arise when modern readers enter this ancient text. Originally written in response to his dad's request to have a good introductory text, this book avoids complicated theological jargon and popularized misapplications of the book of Revelation and leads readers to join the holy choir in singing, "Come, Lord Jesus."

This new edition adds:

  • An essay that argues why the concept of a rapture is an egregious misreading of Revelation.
  • A short study guide with discussion questions for each chapter.
