2024 Christian Book Award® Winner (Bible Reference Works)

In this addition to the award-winning BECNT series, leading evangelical biblical scholar Thomas Schreiner offers a substantive commentary on Revelation.

Schreiner's BECNT volume on Romans has been highly successful, with nearly 40,000 copies sold. In this volume, Schreiner presents well-informed evangelical scholarship on the book of Revelation. With extensive research and thoughtful chapter-by-chapter exegesis, he leads readers through the text of Revelation to help them better understand the meaning and relevance of this biblical book.

As with all BECNT volumes, this commentary features the author's detailed interaction with the Greek text and an acclaimed, user-friendly design. It admirably achieves the dual aims of the series--academic sophistication with pastoral sensitivity and accessibility--making it a useful tool for pastors, church leaders, students, and teachers.


"Having written a highly regarded commentary on Paul's Letter to the Romans in the BECNT series, Tom Schreiner presents here a superb commentary on John's Revelation. It does not require prophetic insight to say that his new commentary will be as much appreciated by scholars, students, and pastors alike as his commentary on Romans. Schreiner consistently focuses on the meaning of the text, which he surveys and assesses with his customary fairness and thoughtfulness. Readers will benefit from Schreiner's exegetical expertise, linguistic prowess, familiarity with international scholarship, judicious engagement with older and newer debates, and, perhaps most importantly, his love for the church."

Eckhard J. Schnabel, Mary F. Rockefeller Distinguished Professor of New Testament Studies, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary

"Thomas Schreiner's commentary is a welcome addition to the renaissance of study devoted to the Apocalypse over the last few decades. Among its strengths are an unswerving focus on the biblical text itself, a command of the relevant secondary literature without being controlled by it, a clear writing style, and a generous spirit of engagement with a variety of views and authors. The volume is destined to be a must-read for all serious students of Revelation."

John Christopher Thomas, Clarence J. Abbott Professor of Biblical Studies, Pentecostal Theological Seminary; director of the Centre for Pentecostal and Charismatic Studies, Bangor University, North Wales

"The book of Revelation is, at the same time, one of the most exhilarating and one of the most complicated books in the New Testament. To navigate these rough waters, one needs an able guide at the helm. Tom Schreiner proves to be such a guide in this wonderful new commentary. It is both erudite and accessible, scholarly yet practical, and filled with a plethora of new insights and observations. I highly recommend it."

Michael J. Kruger, president and professor of New Testament, Reformed Theological Seminary, Charlotte, North Carolina

"Tom Schreiner masterfully weds exegesis, history, and theology with robust scholarship and judicious balance. Aside from his exegetical precision and fresh interpretive insights, Schreiner's near-encyclopedic command of the scholarship on Revelation makes this commentary an invaluable resource for all serious study. Instead of merely rehashing what others have said, he faithfully engages the text of Revelation with expert understanding, sensibility, and creativity. Schreiner's Revelation now joins the ranks of my go-to commentaries along with Aune, Beale, and Koester."

Alan S. Bandy, director of PhD studies, New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary

"Tom Schreiner has produced an outstanding commentary on Revelation. He treats any number of perplexing issues in a remarkably clear way, firm in his convictions but characteristically charitable to those with whom he disagrees. Scholars will appreciate his thorough analysis of textual and historical issues, while pastors will benefit from his clarity and his thoughtful application of the text. Highly recommended."

Sean M. McDonough, professor of New Testament, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary

"This volume represents the mature work of one of this generation's finest New Testament scholars. Tom Schreiner provides readers with a rare combination of biblical faithfulness, serious exegesis, accessible style, and pastoral warmth in a first-rate exposition of the book of Revelation. This magnificent commentary will be a treasured resource for preachers, teachers, and students of the Scriptures for years to come. Highly recommended!"

Brian J. Tabb, academic dean and professor of biblical studies, Bethlehem College and Seminary
