Summary
This guide to the historical and intellectual background of the John of Patmos' Apocalypse includes a close reading of the text, focusing on the meaning of its images and details the wide-ranging impact of the book on Christian and Western history. Dr. Koester examines its meaning in John's day and how it continues to be meaningful to contemporary readers, for some as a book of predictions and others as a work of literature, while it remains for most who read it a message of hope
