Explains the main themes of Revelation
A simple, engaging read
Well known and popular UK author
What is the average person to make of the book of Revelation, with its vivid imagery and its apocalyptic visions? Richard Bewes steers his readers through the minefields of controversy and bizarre interpretations. He picks out the great themes and landmarks that are the message of Christ to every generation of believers.
Richard Bewes is the author of several beloved books of faith including Talking About Prayer, 150 Pocket Thoughts, and The Goodnight Book. Bewes was the rector of All Souls Church in the centre of London from 1983 until his retirement in 2004. In 2005 he was awarded an OBE for his services to the Church of England.

'If the Bible is the book for today's church (and it is), then the Book of Revelation should be the book for today's Church (and it is)....Richard Bewes sweeps us through it with a touch that makes even the back streets seem important and yet keeps the strategic parts in perspective'
Michael Baughen, Retired Bishop of Chester, Cheshire
'Richard Bewes has captured the central theme of John's Revelation...Written in graceful prose, this little book will make Revelation's central lines of thought leap to life and relevance. It deserves wide circulation.'
D. A. Carson, Research Professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, Deerfield, Illinois
'Richard Bewes provides a breath of fresh air...very readable'
Fiona Castle, Well known author and speaker
"Richard Bewes, rector of All Souls, London, is a good preacher. His sermons, biblically based, are relevantly illustrated from our contemporary situations and church history. All Richard's skills are displayed in the 18 chapters of this book. There is much spiritual food in these pages for diligent bible students as an articulate pastor expounds what John experienced one Sunday on lonely, hilly Patmos." "A highly imaginative look into the only book in the Holy Bible with a blessing attached to anyone who even reads it! Richard's descriptions give a view on Revelation that can only be likened to a biblical projection on the screen of your mind."
John R Green, Broadcasting Manager, UCB TV
'Richard Bewes has done it again. 'Brilliant' is the word. Here is the best introduction I know to the book of Revelation; profound, yet simple and understandable. I recommend it for every young Christian, in fact for every Christian Bible reader.'
'For us all, it is a good alternative to the many pre-millennialist books that have been published in recent years. I warmly commend it.'
Sam Torrens, 'The Rutherford Journal of Church and Ministry'
This book is one I've recommended time and again to people wishing to read Revelation for themselves (with a little help), and those who want to lead Bible studies. The best book of its kind I have read.
