Study Guide to the Book of Revelation

Noted New Testament scholar Poythress provides an understandable and practical look into Revelation in this insightful commentary. Poythress focuses on Revelation's core message and ensures that its details do not cloud the big picture. He shows Revelation to be a "picture book, not a puzzle book," relevant and applicable to the daily lives of Christians.


"The Returning King unlocks the mysteries of the book of Revelation without spoiling the story. Here we have crystal-clear exposition lit up with flashes of thrilling insight and shafts of penetrating application—all rolled into one. And like the book of Revelation itself, The Returning King is all about Jesus —and it can be understood by every Christian!"

—Sinclair Ferguson

"A clear map to guide readers through Revelation’s alien terrain. Poythress shows us how to grasp and relish the many layers of rich symbolism. He also shows us how God intends to use Revelation in our lives, helping us to see through Satanic counterfeits, stand fast under pressure, and fix our hope on the return of King Jesus."

—Dennis E. Johnson

"A remarkably clear and easy-to-read exposition. Although written for the ‘man in the pew’ this work reveals not only a broad knowledge of the literature on Revelation but also a great deal of personal reflection on its meaning for life in today’s world."

—Robert H. Mounce
