Faithfulness is fuelled by a renewed imagination for God’s world.
The book of Revelation has often been treated as a futuristic prophecy − a road map of a bizarre future to be inflicted on the world by an angry God. Ian Paul invites you to explore how the book’s author draws on a style of writing familiar to Jesus and his first followers and encourages God’s people to stay faithful despite the world’s pressures to compromise.
This fascinating six-session guide with its blend of insightful mini-features, timely notes, and skilful questions will help you to approach this book with fresh eyes. You’ll gain a richer understanding of God’s world and a fresh confidence to reimagine your place in it.
