With historic events seeming to burgeon with signs of the last days, the study of apocalyptic literature — that which is concerned with the end of history as we know it and the coming kingdom of God — has become increasingly relevant. C. Marvin Pate considers the background of Old Testament apocalyptic literature, such as Daniel, demonstrating its foundational role for properly understanding the New Testament discussions. He also elucidates the tie that binds all apocalyptic writing together — the coming restoration of Israel — before delving into his main emphasis on Revelation and other New Testament writings. Key principles of interpretation specific to this genre are provided for the reader, as well as steps to communicate the theological messages of biblical apocalyptic literature to a modern audience often anxious about the implications of the end times. Beyond a basic grounding in the field, Pate’s in-depth explanations also include new insights to the texts, such as viewing the Roman triumphal entry as the key background to the book of Revelation.
