Revelation is one of the most difficult and misinterpreted texts in the Christian Scriptures, yet it is widely used in the liturgical life of the Roman Catholic Church.
In Reading Revelation at Easter Time, Francis Moloney explores it as a celebration of the perennial and ongoing effects of Jesus' death and resurrection. After an introduction to Revelation, the book provides an interpretation for each biblical reading in the Liturgy of the Hours across the Easter period. A presentation of every passage from Revelation used elsewhere in the Roman liturgy is also provided by means of a different typeface across the commentary. Readers are invited to rejoice in the ongoing victory of "the Lamb who was slain before the foundation of the world" (Rev 13:8).
