NO KIDDING The Revelation Is Meant To Be Understood The Bible's last book is not a puzzle, mystery or myth, but God's clear foretelling of the conclusion of His predetermined history of the universe and the human race in their perfected state. Unfortunately, well-meaning interpreters have blurred and distorted it's message by imposing their biased eschatologies upon it rather than allowing the Revelation text to tell its own exciting and encouraging story. As we journey along with John on his visionary tour into the future the Lord's angel will keep us abreast of the sights and sounds we encounter at each new location until we are awe-stricken upon arriving at its destination, the new heaven and earth which God will have created in which we shall live eternally with Him, His Son and the Holy Spirit. A scholarly, readable, new and different but valid commentary on the Revelation. The writer, Rev. Robert L. Kramer, is a graduate of Moravian College and received his theological training at the Evangelical Seminary, Reading, PA and Moravian Theological Seminary, Bethlehem, PA. He had been a pastor for 45 years in the Evangelical Congregational Church and had written Sunday School lessons for the denominational Sunday School quarterly and articles for the church paper, The United Evangelical. He had served as secretary and then president of the Christian Educational Society of the Evangelical Congregational Church. Upon retirement from the pastorate he was urged by his District Superintendent to pursue means to preserve and share his teachings with the Christian community at large. To that end he began to write and mail a bi-monthly periodical, Second Thoughts, which he has done for 15 years. He has served as the Bible teacher in camp meetings in Pennsylvania and has held prophecy conferences in Pennsylvania and Texas.
