Book by Koester Craig R

Críticas:

Fort Worth Star-Telegram "Koester supplies excellent food for thought. . . [He] is particularly strong on connecting the book's language and imagery to Old Testament predecessors."Revelation and the End of All Things"is a thoughtful and perceptive look at a difficult topic."The Bible Today "Anyone looking for a good, interesting, and nontechnical study of the book of Revelation will want to consider this fine work. Koester begins by tracing the remarkable history of interpretation of this haunting New Testament book. . . He then turns to his own reading of the text which is rich and insightful and filled with good Christian sense. This would make a fine background text for parish Bible study groups and their leaders."M. Eugene Boring "Craig Koester communicates current scholarship on Revelation with clarity, passion, and concern that the message of the Bible be understood and appropriated in today's world. Not merely an antidote or alternative to"Left Behind"and 'Jesus is coming soon' commercialism, "Revelation and the End of All Things"is a substantial contribution to good literature on Revelation in its own right. "Review & Expositor "A popular and easy to read work on Revelation. . . For laity and those in the churches who are seeking alternatives to the unsound and popular views of Revelation, Koester's book is a good recommendation."Adela Yarbro Collins "This book offers an innovative introduction to Revelation, drawing on the history of interpretation, art, and music as well as on sound literary and historical analysis. It will help readers understand a wide variety of current approaches to Revelation by explaining briefly their origins and intentions. Highly recommended for ministry students, church study groups, and general readers. "Francis J. Moloney, SDB "Koester has written a book of singular significance for the contemporary Christian community. The puzzle of Revelation is normally resolved by ignoring its original setting or by rendering it irrelevant to the Christian Bible through an intense focus on that setting. Koester shows that the horizons of the Christian past, present, and future merge in John's remarkable 'revelation.' I cannot recommend this book highly enough to all Christians."CBA Marketplace "Koester presents his case exceptionally well. He writes clearly and continually draws readers back to his understanding of Revelation's main theme. His arguments are well-reasoned, and he balances the text's application to John's day and today. Also helpful is his overview of how Revelation has been interpreted through church history."" Fort Worth Star-Telegram -Koester supplies excellent food for thought. . .
