Revelation, to most people, is but an idea shrouded in hazy ambiguity. This need not be true if one will read the exposition of God's purpose for the world and man as given by Mack . Stokes in The Epic of Revelation. Mr. Stokes holds that God has revealed himself to man through nature and personality and that the Bible is the inspired written record of that revelation. He carries God's impact on man from birth through the of living on into the logical phases wherein the soul is united to its through . Admitting the premise that the Bible is divinely inspired, the author makes out a clear. Incontrovertible case soundly founded upon the principles of logic. He shows that creation is a finite order in which man is given a life span in order that he may fulfill himself. Therefore, one's beliefs concerning creation condition one's life. Creation an expounded by Platonism, Gnosticism, pantheism, naturalism and various other philosophies is compared with the Christian concept and he concludes, ""Either the of man is part of God's plan or Christianity is a rope of sand"". Each chapter is divided into three sections: the statement of the case as found in the Bible; the theological ramifications; the application of the Bible's teaching to everyday life. While the fact, quite understandable to any serious, intelligent reader, a bit of foundation in the Bible and elementary theology is helpful.
