To many Christians the Book of Revelation is virtually a closed book. Occasionally a Preacher may "borrow" a text from it on which to base an address, but systematic exposition of the Apocalypse is rare in the pulpit today. The reason is not far to seek. The average layman is undoubtedly both mystified and a trifle repelled by the incomprehensible imagery of the Book, while the minister is perhaps intimidated by the prospect of a venture upon so enigmatic a theme.

In this remarkable series of sermons, Professor Torrance not only opens up a much neglected book, but succeeds in giving it a startlingly contemporary significance: the cobwebs of prejudice are blown away and the ancient pages speak to the here and now with the surprising freshness of discovery. The author takes up to the roots and the ancient and enigmatic book speaks to us in no uncertain voice. This is expository preaching at its best.
