You are probably more familiar with the Book of Revelation that you realize. Revelation directly inspired some of the most famous hymns, including "You Servants of God" and "Battle Hymn of the Republic". Now, you can engage more with this impactful book with the help of an expert guide through this 11-lecture audio series. Your teacher is Professor Bertrand Buby, SM, a leading theologian and author of A Journey through Revelation.
No other New Testament book matches Revelation for its symbolism and richness of imagery. And yet perhaps no other New Testament book has fostered so much confusion, fascination, and artistic expression. For example, the Left Behind book series has sold over 65 million copies, and "Revelation" is a more popular Google search term than "World War II".
Until now, reading Revelation and meditating on its message may have seemed daunting or mystifying, but this need not be the case. This beautiful, essential book contains God's hope-filled message in the face of fear and uncertainty.
You will come to understand the world behind the text, the use of Old Testament scripture and imagery, and the impact of Revelation on the Church through liturgy, worship, and theology.
If you ever wanted to get behind the sensationalism surrounding apocalyptic literature and art to gain a deep understanding of this vital book, now you can. Join Prof. Buby on this profound journey today.
