- In a life long searching to understand and seek the twice promised blessings of John's Revelation, I was lead to discover G. K. Beale and his masterful NIGTC commentary. Since then, I practically bought everything he wrote. William Hendriksen's "More than Conquerors" had previously helped me to (finally) discover a hermeneutics that made sense to me, explaining that Jesus precious bride, the Church, is encouraged to persevere and not compromise and his protected in these last days until its final victory when He comes again in Judgement. I am eager to read this new book which will no doubt, thanks to God. be another master piece.
- The preview to this book indicates that it was first published in 1984. Beale's NIGTC commentary was published in 1998. Thus I have decided not to buy this older 1984 work, but instead to consult Beale's 1998 NIGTC commentary which reflects many more years of Beale's careful examination of the Book of Revelation.
- Excellent; in this short commentary, Mr Beale display a keen understanding of what Paul is saying to his dear Thessalonians . Exposition of the text showing the already /not yet status of Christians leaving "in these last days" is abundantly clear and easily understood by any pastor/teacher or for that matter , any child of God. I highly recommend it. Jean Claude
