Book Review: “The Book of Revelation Made Clear” by Tim La Haye and Timothy E. Parker

I used to be frightened about reading the book of Revelation when I was younger. In retrospect, it was an unfounded fear as I had never read it and the only thing I knew about it was hearsay. Fast forward to 2008 when I decided to bite the bullet and read the only book in the bible that had caused me so much dread and trepidation.

I read it and was amazed to find that it really was not as scary as it was rumoured. Indeed, it is the only book in the bible that attaches a promise of blessing to anyone who reads it out loud or hears it being read aloud (Rev 1:3).

When I had the opportunity to review this book, I was a bit sceptical to be honest, especially as Tim La Haye was one of the writers and I did not enjoy the fear his “Left Behind” series inflicted on me. I decided to take the chance as the book blurb was compelling (especially as it promised to demystify the book of Revelation).

Demystify the book of Revelation it did and refreshingly so. I enjoyed how the book gave an expository on each verse of each chapter i. It started with 3 puzzles for the reader to attempt, 2 verses of the scripture that were explained and the answers to the puzzles after reading the chapter.

I recommend this book as a guide to understanding the book of Revelation more for yourself and as a prelude for more in depth study of the book of Revelation.

Have a fabulous day people!

  2. for some people reading the book of revelation can be very challenging. sometimes i would suggest them to get a novel written based on end times prophecies instead. this would give them a flavour of it and hopefully they would want to read the book of revelation themselves for a better understanding about end times.
