Revelation

For many, the book of Revelation is one of the most puzzling sections of the Bible. Confusing symbols, mysterious imagery, and sometimes unpleasant descriptions make it daunting to read and difficult to understand. As a result, many people avoid it altogether and just assume they have no hope of ever getting their heads round it. In this series of seminars, held between the meetings at ChristChurch London, we look at some of the key themes and tricky passages, learning how to interpret and learn from this important book.
