From a team of more than 50 international scholars comes the Word Biblical Commentary Series.

Harvesting the important historical, textual, literary and archaeological discoveries from a generation of scholarship, the Word Biblical Commentary Series serves the needs of professional scholars and teachers, students of the Bible and of theology, working ministers and anyone who wants a theological understanding of Scripture that is grounded in the best of today's biblical scholarship.

Dr. David E. Aune continues this thorough interpretative work in this second of three volumes of his monumental commentary on the Revelation of John.

The bibliographies of the scholarly literature on each section of chapters 6-16 of this enigmatic New Testament book are comprehensive, up to date, and fully engaged in the detailed textual notes, structural analysis, and comment that follow.

Scholars will appreciate Dr. Aune's painstaking establishment of the Greek text behind his fresh translation, building on the studies of such specialists as H.C. Hoker and J. Schmind and producting textual notes that now supersede the pioneering work of R. H. Charles.

The meaning of the rich imagery and symbolism of the visions portrayed in this Christian apocalypse is brought to light through a wide-ranging investigation of possible sources in the ancient cultural traditions reflected in the literature of the Hebrew Bible, Second Temple Judaism, and the wider ancient Near Eastern and Greco-Roman world. Students of Revelation will be indebted to Dr. Aune for his mastery of this original source material, some of which has come to scholarly attention only in recent years.

Dr Aune's thoroughness also extends to detailed word studies in his verse-by-verse commentary, illustrating the meaning of key Greek terms through an extensive citation of uses in both biblical and non biblical ancient Greek literature. All readers who have puzzled over the mysteries of the Revelation of John will profit from the immense learning displayed by Dr. Aune in a convenient and accessible format in this comprehensive commentary.
