This book introduces Christians to the book of Revelation through a study of one of its key themes: victory. Running counter to Revelation s prevailing interpretation, it proposes that Christians, represented by the audience in the Seven Churches, have been in tribulation since the first century and that Revelation was written to help Christians be victorious over the challenges of life.
Each chapter opens with an account of martyrdom. The final account tells the story of the three believers in Malatya, Turkey, who were brutally killed in 2007. This title also features a new translation of Revelation by the author, a scholar who has worked on Revelation for more than two decades and who lives in the land of the Seven Churches Turkey.
