Description:
The book of Revelation is a riveting read—but a persistent question Christians have is, “What does it mean?”

Pastor-theologian Richard Phillips provides a thorough and penetrating study of each chapter while highlighting the theme of the sovereign rule of Christ over history for the salvation of his church.

The apostle John wrote his book with the intention of being understood by real people. Carefully noting how the book’s symbolism works, Phillips paints the pictures of Revelation and explains its meaning to readers today. Along the way, readers will see the glory of Christ as the exalted Priest and King for his people, observe the vision of present and future history laid out in Revelation, and discover the powerful pattern of faith by which we may join Christians of all ages in victory.

Endorsements:
“This book matches, or even supersedes, Richard Phillips’s other fine volumes in this reputable series. The author opens up Revelation in a manner that informs the Bible student, equips the preacher, comforts the suffering believer, and ignites the worshiper for the praise of Christ. Highly recommended!” —Joel R. Beeke, President, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids

“Richard D. Phillips has written Revelation in the Reformed Expository Commentary series (P & R Publishing). You don’t need to read Greek to profit from this excellent treatment of Revelation. You only need perseverance, as it comes in at a weighty 764 pages! Of course, it helps to know that I completely agree with Phillip’s amillennial perspective! If you want to go deeper in Revelation, whether in personal Bible study or in teaching the book, Phillips is the book for you.” —Sam Storms, Enjoying God Ministries

“Richard Phillips opens his Revelation (P&R) with a hearty preface extolling the contemporary value of this often misunderstood and misused, and therefore frequently avoided, book. Anyone preaching this book would do well to read the preface and first chapter, at least. You could think of this commentary as sermonic renditions of Greg Beale’s magisterial commentary. Phillips follows Beale’s basic trajectory and does solid exegesis and application for the church.” —Ray Van Neste, Preaching Magazine
