For many Christians, the book of Revelation remains “an unknown land”, causing confusion and diverse opinions.
Yet the curiosity remains: Why is the book in the Bible? What is its purpose? What difference does it make to the church and its members? How can we better understand its purpose and contents?
Bishop Robert Solomon has written this book to provide us some helpful keys to understanding the book of Revelation.
“Revelation gives a sweeping overview of the plans of God in Christ, and gives us, above all, much needed encouragement and hope as we live in a world gripped by sin and evil and wait for the return of Christ,” he writes.
The Book of Revelation: Encouragement for Troubled Times is a useful book for Bible students, pastors, Bible study and small group leaders, and those who are called to teach in the church.
“The book of Revelation has been often ignored, dismissed as too difficult, or used to justify wild theories of the future. But here, under the wise reading and guidance of Robert Solomon, it speaks authentically of hope in the face of persecution and the ultimate triumph of good over evil.”
Rev Professor David Wilkinson
Principal, St John’s College, Durham University, UK
“A comprehensive, compelling, passage-by-passage guide that has the power to illuminate our minds and transform our hearts as we prepare for all that lies ahead – the fleeting tribulations and the enduring triumph.”

President and CEO, Credo Communications
“The book of Revelation is fascinating, but full of debates. However, Bishop Solomon skilfully guides us through the first-century context and the content on to the challenges for today and the divine comfort from the Almighty God, especially to those under persecution.”
Rev Dr Ezra Kok
Honorary Research Fellow, Seminari Theoloji Malaysia
