Most Bible commentaries take us on a one-way trip from our world to the world of the Bible. But they leave us there, assuming that we can somehow make the return journey on our own. In other words, they focus on the original meaning of the passage but don't discuss its contemporary application. The information they offer is valuable -- but the job is only half done! The NIV Application Commentary Series helps us with both halves of the interpretive task. This new and unique series shows readers how to bring an ancient message into a modern context. It explains not only what the Bible meant but also how it can speak powerfully today.… (lisätietoja)

Excellent commentary! It is not technically written but is for the general reader. However, and while concise, it is insightful and informative and convicting with practical applications for today. It follows the NIV. Each section discussed in Revelation is looked at in three ways:

(1) "Original Meaning" discusses things like Greek word meanings and cultural context.

(2) "Bridging Contexts" bridges the ancient world in which Revelation was written to the contemporary world by "focusing on both the timely and timeless aspects of the texts" (p.10).

(3) "Contemporary Significance" helps to bring out the various issues faced by the original readers in their past cultural context and helps to bring out the significance and specific applications it may have for us today.

NIVAC also discusses the various theological models that have been interpreted in the reading of Revelation, e.g. the "rapture," the "millennium," etc.

This is a commentary that provides great help in not only understanding Revelation, especially in it's cultural context, but in offering an approach that helps us to apply it's lessons in our lives today. Keener's commentary challenges us to rethink Revelation's importance for today and not just what it really meant for the audience of Revelation the first 100 years of the Christian Church, but forces us to reevaluate what Christianity means for us today and to reexamine our lives as Christians in light of that meaning.

NIVAC on Revelation by Craig S. Keener is a must read not only for those seeking an introduction into the book but also for those seeking its meaning and relevance for today for their Christian life. ( )

Excellent for pastors and teachers., June 28, 2000
By rossuk (London, UK) - See all my reviews

There are plenty of commentaries on Revelation. The scholar has Beale and Aune, the student has got the less detailed but scholarly Mounce, and the layman has the rightly popular Hendriksen. There are a lot of other good commentaries out there, but it is hard to find one that stands out from the crowd.

This one by Professor Craig S Keener fills a need in that it is designed to apply the lessons of Revelation to contemporary life. Keener is no academic lightweight, he has already written a 1061 page commentary on Matthew, but he is no stodgy academic either, he is also actively involved in contemporary church life.

In the commentary he covers short sections of Revelation by first discussing the original meaning of the text, which he does reasonably well. Although I think more care is needed to bring out the meaning of the symbolism of Revelation. The layout could also be improved to make clearer which verse he is talking about. After the section on the original meaning there is a section which builds a bridge between the world of the bible and the world of today. Finally there is a longer section which applies the passage to contemporary western life. The pastor or teacher who has to teach Revelation will find this commentary very useful and it will help to answer the question. "Well what has all that Roman persecution got to do with us?" Craig Keener knows the Western church well enough to be suitably challenging in his application. He will also help to enlarge the horizon of an inward looking church. Because he applies Revelation to contemporary life a new edition will be required five to ten years hence.

The 576 page commentary is sufficiently detailed to answer the main questions posed by the text but it is not over detailed. The busy pastor will still need to supply some more analysis. The book has quite extensive footnotes, which can usually be ignored, and four indexes. Pastors and teachers will benefit from this book as well as students who want more than just an academic interest in Revelation. Good job Craig, look forward to the next edition.
