Description - Apocalypse by Stephen C Doyle
"Like most people who are lovers of God's word, for a long time, I was very uncomfortable with the Book of Revelation.... But I found that there was a way out of the confusion, a way to hear what God was saying, a means of interpreting the book in the way that God intended..." --from the Introduction In this engaging and responsible volume, Scripture scholar Stephen Doyle uses a three-pronged approach to deciphering the complicated and often-misunderstood Book of Revelation--one that is accessible to a new Bible reader, yet useful to the serious student. Following the directives of the Second Vatican Council's Constitution on Divine Revelation , he helps the reader to: examine the text in light of its original language, understand what the human author meant to communicate, and determine the literary form used and its influence on the meaning of the text. Each chapter begins with a passage of the Book of Revelation, followed by an explanation that searches for the main theme in that passage, and concludes with a reflection that casts light on the meaning of the text for today. A thorough bibliography provides resources for further study.

Author Biography - Stephen C Doyle
STEPHEN C. DOYLE, O.F.M., is a biblical scholar who frequently conducts seminars and workshops as well as pilgrimages in the footsteps of Jesus (Holy Land) and Saint Paul.(Greece and Turkey). In a foreword to a previous book, Cardinal Humberto Medeiros wrote of Doyle: "He is a dedicated Franciscan priest, a most competent scriptural scholar, an international lecturer and publisher and a most refreshing human being. His own life bespeaks what he so successfully seeks to promote: to help us find our identity in God's word."
