Even many unbelievers have a fascination with the Book of Revelation and search its pages to try and discover ‘when the end is coming’. Revelation is a prophecy, but what many people don’t realize, it is prophecy unfolding before our eyes now and is written to Christians to persevere until Jesus comes back.
By using the book’s own words to interpret, along with drawing heavily from the Old Testament, Revelation may not be as inaccessible as many might think. In fact, this series is three volumes long, not because it’s so complex, but because it is abounding in rich teaching that is devotional in its application and relevant to our everyday lives. Bill Medley unpacks each chapter and verse and along the way engages with all the major views of interpretation as well as explaining Revelation’s theology in relation to Israel. He unfolds and explains the prophecy of what is happening in the world and how it is going to end. Across history all the way to the very end, Jesus wins.
“G. K. Chesterton once commented on the book of Revelation, that ‘though St John the Evangelist saw many strange monsters in his vision, he saw no creature so wild as one of his own commentators.’ So Bill Medley has rushed in where many odd predecessors have gone, and where many continue to linger. But in his own inimitable way, Bill shows us that Rob Bell is wrong - it is not Love that wins, but Jesus. There is plenty here to wade through, but it is not mud, but refreshing truth.”

“[Jesus Wins The Series] is important as it will show other preachers that they can, and should, tackle the book of Revelation.

“This is an excellent and thoroughly readable explanation of one of the more ‘difficult’ books of the Bible. In my view, the best commentaries are those written by the pastor-theologian. Those who have had long experience in ministry, as the author has, are better placed to apply scripture to people whose lives are scarred and troubled by sin. The author seeks to understand Revelation not just in its original context, but to wrestle with how it applies now.”
