Rezension aus Deutschland vom 19. September 2022
The biblical book of Apocalypse is one of the most challenging, if not the most challenging book of the Holy Bible to read, study and comprehend, because we are dealing here with genuine divine revelation par excellence. Man is absolutely not advised to go through this most mysterious biblical book without a proper exegetical guide that provides you with sufficient and relevant background information and accurate explanations of terms, phrases and paragraphs of the Apocalypse
Now with this work Marshall brilliantly provides the most ideal solution to this problem:
it serves as a fairly comprehensive answer key to the book of Apocalypse. Prior to commenting on the book of Apocalypse, he competently introduces the Book and its major themes. I love Marhsall's perfectly readable style. He starts each new section with ample quotations. He translates terms of ancient languages. He ideally backs all his points with compact summaries of background knowledge required. which is most helpful for the reader. He addresses controversial questions, e.g. if there is only one antichrist or are there many or did the antichrist already come. He makes references to Church Fathers. His analyses contain church history, history of dogma, discussions of heresies, discussions and summaries of facts about the Antichrist and his coming.
Marshall shows that reading Apocalypse can be much better understood by reading it through the eyes of the Old Testament and the Church Fathers. What I highly appreciate is, in this book Marshall features all relevant quotations from the Bible or the Church Fathers or other sources where appropriate, so that the reader is not forced to doublecheck with the sources himself. This really adds to the comfort and eyes opening experience of the reader.
Marhsall shows that the Apocalypse is the map on our quest for eternal life. We learn that Apocalypse literally means taking away the veil. In this book the veil is taken away, and we see human history and its climax from God’s point of view. It is the “revelation” of what God has done, is doing, and will do to finally redeem and restore the creation that He initiated.
This book is so much more than a mere biblical commentary. Marshall proves that Apocalypse is the fulfillment of earlier made prophecies, the culmination of mankind's salvation history brought about by Christ. He argues: “To understand the Antichrist and the Apocalypse, you must understand the teaching of Christ and His Apostles about false Christs, false prophets, the Man of Sin, and the many lesser antichrists in general.” And that is why Marshall incorporates all this in a compact manner.
The Apocalypse takes away the veil. In this life, we see things as jumbled and mixed. But when we remove the veil, we see God against Satan. Kingdom against Kingdom. Bride against harlot. Christ against Antichrist. And Marshall's book is the perfect guide that most excitingly and comprehensively takes us through this journey of ceil removal.
A must-read for every Christian in order to enhance one's knowledge with respect to Christian faith, doctrine, theology, (salvation) history of mankind, biblical exegesis, God, Satan, Christ.....
Marshall brings it all together.
This book is an eye-opener for sure !
Thanks a million, Dr. Taylor Marshall !
