Reading the Book of Revelation

A Resource for Students
  • By David L. Barr
An introduction to the interpretation of the Apocalypse. Each chapter provides an overall reading of Revelation that grows out of a particular methodological approach. The primary approaches include historical, literary, and social analysis, which are then used in combination with other reading strategies including social conflict theory, philosophy, women's studies, ethics, history of religions, postcolonial studies, and popular culture. Each of the essays focuses on a specific text from Revelation and shows how the method used helps interpret that text, and how diverse methods produce divergent readings of a text. A resource book for undergraduates, graduate students, religious leaders, and others who wish to explore how methods shape our understandings of texts.
