This brief commentary is intended to serve as a guide for those teaching Revelation in a Bible class or as a guide for personal study. Over the years, Dr. Fair has taught small group classes, congregational Bible classes, and university classes and has felt the need for a short commentary that bridges between some basic studies and the more scholarly and detailed commentaries. He has written this study guide with an eye on the reader who does not want to get bogged down in academic details and yet who wants something with meaning to it. He has stayed in contact with the latest research and publications in the field of Revelation. There are many perceptions of the story of Revelation, most of them having no basis in solid research. Dr. Fair approaches the study of Revelation with a practical and thoroughly researched point of view. The story of Revelation has little to do with the "end of the world", it is a story of deeply needed encouragement to struggling Christians living in Asia Minor, modern day Turkey. As we read and study this wonderful manuscript, we glean much of value for us today. Finally, this work is offered with the prayer that it will encourage Christians and others to realize the triumphant victory we have in Christ over Satan and his forces of evil that challenge us on every front of our lives; that it will offer hope to those who struggle under the pressures of life, and ultimately bring glory to God our Father and his Son, Jesus Christ.
