Bibliography for the Study of the Book of Revelation -- Amillennialism 101

patmosgreece.jpgSelect Bibliography for the Book of Revelation

Introductory Guides to the Book of Revelation

Vern S. Poythress, The Returning King: A Guide to the Book of Revelation (P & R) -- Highly recommended basic guide.  Good background material, theological content.  Best place to start.

Michael Wilcock. The Message of Revelation, The Bible Speaks Today (IVP) -- Part of the IVP “Bible Speaks” series.  Good for personal study.  Includes study/discussion questions.

Commentaries on Revelation

Simon J. Kistemaker, Revelation (Baker) -- Solid Reformed amillennial approach to the text, part of the series of commentaries begun by William Hendricksen.

G. K. Beale, The Book of Revelation: A Commentary on the Greek Text (Eerdmans) -- The best academic commentary on Revelation in print, period!  But it is for advanced readers and quite expensive.

William Hendricksen, More Than Conquerors: An Interpretation of the Book of Revelation (Baker) -- For many years the Reformed standard, now outdated.

Dennis E. Johnson, Triumph of the Lamb: A Commentary on Revelation (P & R) -- The best all-around commentary on Revelation.  If you plan to buy only one book on Revelation, this should be it.

Specialized Studies

Richard Bauckham, The Theology of the Book of Revelation (Cambridge) --  Very good topical treatment of the major themes running throughout Revelation.

Richard Bauckham, The Climax of Prophecy (T & T Clark) -- For advanced students, very insightful look at some of the structural and theological issues facing the interpreter of Revelation.

Colin Hemer, The Letters to the Seven Churches of Asia: In Their Local Settings (Eerdmans) -- Background information on the seven churches.  Updates and replaces Ramsey

Mark Wilson, Charts on the Book of Revelation: Literary, Historical, and Theological Perspectives (Kregel) -- Very helpful material, indeed invaluable.

Thanks, Kim, for this list! I know that you can't post every helpful book, but I have found Herman Bavinck's "Last Things" to be very helpful to me--though it is not a commentary on Revelation per se.

I appreciate all the great resources you have compiled on your blog for us--thank you for all your hard work!

What about Anthony A. Hoekema the Bible and the Future or Cornelis P. Venema The Promise of the Future, Whish is suppose to be one of the best works on Amillennialism.

Two books that over the years have been widely used by scholar and lay person a like.

And of course lets not forget A Case for Amillennialism by Pastor Kim Riddlebarger.

What about Siegbert Becker's "The Distant Triumph Song"? A sound Lutheran commentary, published by Northwestern Publishing House.
