Perhaps no book of the Bible intrigues, fascinates and intimidates people like the Book of Revelation, the mysterious apocalyptic text which concludes the New Testament. In this 224-page overview, Fr. Faley provides an excellent introduction to Revelation, its historical context, symbolism and meaning for contemporary Christians. A wonderful way to enter into the rich and sometimes confusing world of the “Apocalypse of John,” and a valuable antidote to much of the misguided “end of times” speculation that Revelation has sometimes inspired.
