Product Description

La primera palabra de todo el libro es "Apocalipsis", que quer a decir "revelaci n". Esta palabra ha venido a ser, no solamente el t tulo de este libro en particular, sino tambi n, el nombre que se le da a todo un g nero de literatura que result com n en los c rculos jud os unos pocos siglos antes del advenimiento de la fe cristiana.

Los cristianos adoptaron este g nero para su propia literatura. El primer caso, y el que le dio nombre a todo el g nero apocal ptico, fue el Apocalipsis de Juan. En general, la literatura apocal ptica se enfrenta a la cuesti n del sufrimiento de los justos en manos de los injustos, y lo hace empleando un lenguaje altamente simb lico que combina un frecuente uso de la met fora con n meros que reciben significados misteriosos.

Este libro de Justo L. Gonz lez y Catherine Gunsalus Gonz lez explica con gran claridad todo el contexto hist rico y tambi n la ex gesis del libro del Apocalipsis; con gran erudici n, pero de forma muy clara y pedag gica, conectando, tambi n, nuestras circunstancias semejantes a las del siglo primero. La injusticia y la idolatr a todav a se pasean en nuestra sociedad y sobre la faz de la tierra. Por esas razones, resulta ser una gran bendici n el que el Apocalipsis, con sus advertencias aterradoras para quienes prefieren la comodidad y el xito antes que la fidelidad, sea parte de nuestro Nuevo Testamento.

Aqu , dos de los historiadores m s importantes, ofrecen a los lectores un comentario altamente accesible, perfecto para los l deres de estudios b blicos o el propio estudio personal.

Un estudio del libro del Apocalipsis de Juan, como gu a para la fe y la pr ctica cristiana. Se explica el libro b blico y explora su significado para vivir con fidelidad hoy.
