If This Isn‘t At The Top, Its Knockin’ On The Door
Great work D.G.! Considering that most consideration, commentary-wise, for Revelation ends up being nothing more than conjecture, this book gives serious students like myself tasty meat to chew on. It stands alongside W.W. Wiersbe, Ray Stedman’s “God’s Final Word”, Wm.Barclay, and Dr.David Reagan’s “Wrath and Glory” as my personal TOP 5 for Revelation. Guzik addresses translation differences between other scholars, not to propose greater weight for his own, but to clarify and head off common misunderstanding(s). His use of copious scriptural cross-referencing allows the reader to see that D.G. wants the Bible to clarify itself, so at the end of the day, you aren’t going to say “Here’s what David Guzik says about such and such…” but, more properly, “Here’s what I’ve learned that God’s Word supports…” Guzik also takes the same approach that I do (which, incidentally will probably NOT enable him to sleep more soundly)… irregardless of how one was brought up historically, culturally, religiously, traditionally or otherwise, there are simply too many cockamamie theorems floating around out in the world… Revelation is replete with GOOD NEWS!!! The author uses Barclay, Clarke, Erdman, Hocking, Leon Morris, Mounce, Poole, Chuck Smith, Spurgeon, Tenney, and Walvoord, among others in this 272 page work. By the way, at no time does Guzik surmise that he should name any current nation or man or timeline so we can mark our calendars or withdraw our savings for that trip around the world before the lights go out…. See for yourself.
