Résumé de Complete idiot's guide to the book of revelation

Authors Bell and Campbell take readers through the symbols and explain events of the time when the Book of Revelation was written and their possible meanings. What was happening in Rome at the time? What have scholars had to say over the centuries? Is it metaphor or will it happen exactly the way it's written? The authors explore multiple schools of study and interpretation such as the Premillennial view, Dispensationalism, the Amillennial view, Postmillennial, Historical, and Liberal views.
