Recommended Reading: Revelation For Everyone

N.T. Wright is widely recognized as one of the world’s leading biblical scholars. Revelation for Everyone is the last in his series of guides to the books of the New Testament, which aim to make the texts accessible and understandable for those who may not have a high-level degree in theology or other church-y subjects. 

“We owe it to ourselves to get our heads and our hearts around John’s glorious pictures as we attempt to be faithful witnesses to God’s love in a world of violence, hatred and suspicion,” Wright says in the book’s introduction. Using stories and recognizable examples from everyday life, Wright helps make sense of the confusing language and heady imagery in the book of Revelation.

This book is available at Soundwords (in the church lobby) for $13 (includes a special gift), or you can purchase it from Amazon here.
