Synopsis

Not to mystify, but to clarify. According to Dr. Charles C. Ryrie, the
book of Revelation was not designed to confuse or mystify its readers, but to enlighten
them about future events. Revelation, the only major prophetic book in the New Testament,
was written by the apostle John while in exile on the island of Patmos. John was
commanded by God not to seal the book (22:10), and those who read it are promised
a special blessing (1:3). Apparently, therefore, the book was expected to be intelligible
and helpful to those who read it.

This refreshing, concise new edition with
helpful charts and graphs is written especially for those who want to understand
what lies ahead in God's plan. Dr. Ryrie's careful attention to detail and understandable
explanations will not only help to clear some of the mystery surrounding the book
of Revelation, but heighten your confidence that God's victory over Satan, death,
and sin is only a matter of time. "Blessed is the one who reads the words of this
prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in
it, because the time is near" (Revelation 1:3, NIV).
