Product Description

"The end of the world is coming." From roadside signs to science fiction films, this slogan underscores our society's nervous fascination with the future. Whether it's a giant asteroid, a worldwide plague, or some other global catastrophe, the end of the world is a terrifying prospect—at least for those who have no idea what it will be like.

For Christians, however, the end of the world should be anything but dreadful. In fact, it should be something we look forward to. Why? Because God has told us how the world will end. And He has assured us that the end of this age will mark the beginning of a new, glorious one in which we will serve and worship Him in sinless perfection. Our eternal hope, as believers, is intimately tied to the end of this world.

All of this is laid out in the book of Revelation. Not only is Revelation the inspired Word of God, it is also the only New Testament book that includes a promised spiritual blessing for those who study and apply its message. As such, it is an essential part of every Christian's devotional life. Those who ignore Revelation deprive themselves of a rich treasure of divine truth, and the promised blessings that come from understanding that truth. Join John MacArthur as he explains the book of Revelation in a way that is both doctrinally precise and intensely practical.

With the possible exception of Dr. Tim LaHaye, no other Bible commentator has informed my own writing as much as that of John MacArthur. I find myself turning to him again and again.
-Jerry B. Jenkins, author of The Left Behind series

God promised "a blessing" to those who read the book of Revelation (1:3).  It is not possible to be blessed by just reading unless you understand it.  That is where John MacArthur's gift of simplifying complex truth makes this such a timely and meaningful book.  You will be blessed, edified, and inspired as you read this practical and true-to-the-Scripture commentary on the last great prophecy in the Bible.
-Tim LaHaye, author of The Left Behind series

Thorough, accurate and straight-forward.  It's the way my friend, John MacArthur, preaches, teaches, and writes.  I'm grateful for the way John's literal interpretation of Revelation shines bright and buoyant hope onto the dark and dismal age in which we live. 
-Joni Eareckson Tada, The JAF International Disability Center
