"Jim Boice's final series of sermons... are a marvelous synthesis of exegesis and theology, of doctrine and life. Read this book for your own well-being, to lead yourself into adoration, to hunger and pray for righteousness that springs from the gospel of grace. Then distribute copies to your friends for their well-being, too."
— D.A. Carson
"Dr. Boice’s commentary on Revelation is like a theological GPS that helps the reader navigate the challenges of understanding the Bible’s most apocalyptic book. Thankfully, he stresses Jesus’ saving work as the central point of Revelation, downplaying charts and predictions in favor of highlighting Jesus as the triumphant Servant, victorious Lamb, and reigning King at the center of all history. Brilliant, biblically rich, and a true blessing."
— Doug Logan, President, Grimké Seminary
"These studies on the book of Revelation were the last sermons in the fruitful ministry of James Montgomery Boice. They also represent the height of his expository prowess. Dr. Boice died with a supreme anticipation of the glories he so remarkably describes from Revelation 4 and 5, and with an optimism for the church due to the sovereign reign of her Lord. Anyone who benefited from Boice's long and faithful ministry will find this a must-have volume. Those who have not yet studied under his skillful hand will find these studies in Revelation a stirring introduction to one of the great pulpit ministries of the Twentieth Century"
— Rick Phillips, Senior Minister, Second Presbyterian Church, Greenville
