Apocalypse Then -- and Now

World events have prompted me to do something I have been meaning to do for a while -- read More Than Conquerors by William Hendriksen. 

I'd already been convinced of a particular interpretation of Revelation through a sermon series I heard many years ago by Randy Pope, which drew heavily on Hendriksen's explication of Revelation. Reading the book today -- which is surprisingly clear, orderly, and easy to follow, especially given the complicated apocalyptic text full of symbol and metaphor -- only strengthens my understanding, and it is also such a lift and encouragement. May I recommend this book to you, if you haven't understood the book of Revelation
