The book of Revelation is not primarily about predicting the future or recognizing end-time signs in the morning news but instead prepares Christ’s followers for the challenges we face in light of the glories to come. Re: velation unpacks Jesus’s vivid communication to His church in the first three chapters of Revelation to remind us of our certain hope, assure us of His victorious presence, and embolden our faith to persevere. Re: velation gives us the coordinates of grace along the path of wisdom for our spiritual journey to eternity as disciples of our risen, reigning, and returning Lord.
“In people’s excitement about the end times, they may forget that the book of Revelation is a message from Christ to His churches. In this well-written, easy-to-read book, Stan Gale shows us how Christ’s words to the seven churches in Asia each give us a portrait of His glory, a practice that we must follow, and a promise to strengthen our souls. His book is a model of bringing Revelation home to our minds, hearts, and lives in a memorable and powerful way.”
— Joel R. Beeke, president of Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary and author of Revelation
“From its intriguing title to its (almost) unique style, Re: velation considers the seven letters to the churches. Rarely have these letters felt so pertinent and fresh (and threatening) as they do here. Pertinent as these letters to the churches are for all ages, something especially relevant emerges in these pages. It is as though the mail has arrived and there’s a letter from Jesus to my own church. Now, who would not want to read that?”
