In this volume, William Barclay makes the most difficult book in the Bible easier to understand. In his introduction he examines areas such as the characteristics of apocalyptic literature and the nature of Caesar worship. John was, as Barclay shows, "soaked and saturated" in the Old Testament, and most of the imagery he employs is drawn from that source. Barclay clarifies the meaning of this imagery as he covers the central issues of the book of Revelation.
