The book of Revelation has always been one of the most interesting books of the Bible to me, ever since I was a child. The imagery is just so colorful, and I love the end when Christ conquers and creates a new Heaven and earth! It never fails to make my heart jump, and reading through Revelations always puts the day to day struggles into perspective - it reminds me that we are all part of a bigger story, and it makes me want to live more for Jesus, because someday He is coming back!
The Book Of Revelation Made Clear by Tim Lahaye and Timothy E. Parker is a great guide to Revelation. When I first picked up this book I thought it was a regular chapter book, but I would call it more of a Bible study guide. Each section opens with a short quiz about the Scripture text. Then it gives you the actual Scripture, along with a short commentary about the verses, and the section finishes off with the answers to the quiz questions. Every verse in the book of Revelation is covered in this manner.
If you have ever wanted to do a personal Bible study on the book of Revelation, this book is a great place to start. I also think it is ideal for those who have never read Revelation before - it makes each verse easier to understand. For those, like myself, who have studied Revelation before, I'd say this book still left me with a fresh perspective and brought attention to some things that I had never thought about. The quizzes were also fun for me to test my memory of the specifics of each verse!
I also have to say, one of my favorite parts of the book was the appendices - Apendix A covers everything Christ says about Himself in the first three chapters of Revelation, and I liked reading through it and seeing that focused picture of Jesus that is presented in Revelation.
Apendix B is a list of all of the Lord's names throughout Scripture - I have been wanting to find a complete list like this, so I loved that a list of His names was included. It inspired me to make this printable - click the link below to view and download it!
