dialogue with other scholars and concerned about real issues (such as
John's ethical responsibilities). It has several nice features, like
printing auxiliary material and parallel quotes in a different color
text. Much of the auxiliary material seems designed to prompt discussions
of Revelations implications for modern readers. It does not discuss issues
like whether "Babylon" is really Jerusalem and it recognizes that the list
of rulers in ch. 17 is an apocalyptic list not an historical statement. It
seems designed as an introduction to Revelation and should be useful as
such. It is printed in a larger format and has lots of illustrations and
comes with a CD (which I have only explored briefly; it seems to be largely
the text in PDF format, searchable). It's worth taking a look at.
