In "Explore the Book of Revelation" by author Julius M. Scott we see the Birth of Jesus Christ and the great conflict between God and Satan. Satan is defeated and thrown down to earth. The birth and life of our Jesus Christ, His death and Resurrection, are the most important single event in mankind’s existence. Without Christ’s sacrifice for our sins there is no one, except Jesus Christ, that has lived a sinless life. Without Jesus there could be no Book of Life and no way that we could gain access into the New Jerusalem. As Adam and Eve were disobedient all of their descendants have also been disobedient.

Julius M. Scott’s “Explore the Book of Revelation” is a chapter-by-chapter exposition of the book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ as revealed to John the Apostle on the Isle of Patmos.  Scott shows how the book of Revelation reveals Christ’s identity and God’s plan for the end of the world as we know it today. His book is an excellent resource for the exegesis of the apostle John’s Apocalypse. It is a good introductory study and guide for all Bible scholars and researchers, a well-rounded handbook for the study of the book of Revelation.

Scott discusses in some detail the main themes of Revelation, for example: The message to the seven churches, God’s throne room, the opening of the seven seals, the seven part judgment, the temple of God and the altar, the great conflict between God and Satan, the birth and life of Jesus, his death and resurrection, the new heaven and the new earth, and the New Jerusalem. He talks about the poetic approach, the symbolic language which the apostle John used, and the imagery through which he revealed a victorious Christ, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

Scott does not attempt to fix the date for the time of the Last Judgment and the establishment of God’s Kingdom. He does point out many of the events that we can watch for which are revealed through the study of the book of Revelation.

Scott’s writing will be helpful to scholars. He uses an easy to understand layman’s language which provides a wealth of insight and information, easily adaptable for individual or small group Bible study, for incorporating in church Bible classes, or as curriculum or recommended reading for Bible School and Seminary study.

Because the book of Revelation is often misunderstood with conflicting opinions and a divergence of interpretations there will be those who will disagree with some of Scott’s conclusions; however, all will acknowledge that it brings “the message of infinite love, power, and justice of the Lord Jesus Christ.” It is written to bring encouragement, inspiration, and practical teaching on Christian living to all who read and study its’ contents.

It is Scott’s prayer that his readers will get to know God better and learn to trust him more completely through the reading of “Explore the Book of Revelation.”

Obviously, Mr Scott is super smart, and extremely passionate about the Bible. You cannot read a single page without realizing this. He believes wholeheartedly in the subject he's teaching, and his passion is contagious!

<blockquote class="left">But when we place our lives in Christ's hands, He restores us now and resurrects us later to an eternal, peaceful relationship with him. (p 24) </blockquote>

This isn't a cheat sheet of Revelation. It is an in-depth study about last book in the Bible. The author takes the chapters in Revelation and breaks them down into more manageable chunks. He supports his statements using other verses in the Bible, and explains every verse in an easy-to-read manner. While the book isn't readable in just a few short settings, it is a very good book to reference as you're reading through Revelation in your bible study journey.

The author has a really good, really concise summary of the book at the very end. This could actually be a starting point for a quick reference – and then go back to the individual chapter for additional information.
<blockquote class="right">The Bible starts with the creating of the universe and ends with the creation of a New Heaven and New Earth. (p 156) </blockquote>
This is a keeper Bible reference book for your bookshelf.
