One of the world's greatest unsolved mysteries is the Book of Revelation. The faithful have tried to decode the meaning of the Apocalypse for centuries. Finally, here is the accessible book you need to assist you in reflecting upon the epic battle it contains and its reverberations. The prophecies of St. John the Evangelist brought dire warnings not just to the pagan culture and lukewarm faithful of his time, but also exhort our blasphemous society and apathetic believers today.

Learn about events that were foretold and have taken place, as well as prophecies that await fulfillment. Be amazed at how the mystical experiences of St. John lead us to a deeper understanding of and appreciation for the holy sacrifice of the Mass, worship, and adoration of the Real Presence of Jesus in the Holy Eucharist. Amidst rebukes for immorality, the Apocalypse also contains an invitation: remain faithful and your name will be written in the Book of Life, you will partake in the wedding feast of the Lamb.

In St. John and the Apocalypse, C.C. Martindale, S.J. elucidates historical and theological interpretations of the Apocalypse, from Roman times to present. He synthesizes and outlines the structure of Revelation, while reflecting upon its essence as the inspired word of God, its literary value, and influences.

Unpack the significance of the number seven throughout the Apocalypse and the import of the seven seals, cities, mysteries, angels, lampstands, plagues, and trumpets. Understand the meaning of 666, the reign of "a thousand years," and the battle between the Woman and the Dragon more deeply.

You will recognize how St. John's prophecies in the Apocalypse transcend Old Testament prophecies. Fr. Martindale will guide you in cross-referencing parallel passages and pondering the magnitude of their meaning.
