Revelation and the End of All Things is a very interesting study on the book of Revelation and how it has been used in our time. Dr. Koester walks the reader through the understanding of the history and the culture of the period. The author's goal is to break down the images and ideas that have grown up over time around this book and recapture its true meaning. For Koester the book of Revelation is not a cryptic story of the future. Rather it is a book that describes the hope that the Church held that no matter what the earthly powers thought, the power of God stood over all. Hope is the main theme of Revelation and Dr. Koester does a good job of brushing away the fear that many have and helping the reader to regain that hope.
