THE DRAMA OF THE BOOK OF REVELATION

A most interesting interpretation is given here of the book of the Bible which perhaps has suffered the most from misrepresentation. The author is of the conviction that the key to an understanding of the Book of Revelation is to be discovered in the structure of the book. He conceives of the book as a drama upon which has been superimposed a covering letter designed to attract the attention of the Church. The theme of the drama is ""The Christian Theology of History"". It aims to answer such questions as ""Has history a meaning?"", ""Will good or evil eventually triumph?"", ""In either case, how and why?"", ""Is God actually directing the course of events?"" In the author's reconstruction of the book, this drama has seven acts, each with seven scenes. This exposition adds greatly to the interest and dramatic power of the book. It should be welcomed by all Bible students.
