About This Item
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."
