Faithful and True | A Study Guide to the Book of Revelation (Carey)
A dragon and two beasts. A war in the heavens.
What should modern readers make of the wildly fantastical Revelation to John? New Testament scholar Greg Carey offers an accessible guide to the biblical book of Revelation, inviting us not to decode every symbol (or tame every dragon) but rather to engage in the urgent questions of power and loyalty.
