Blessed Is He Who Reads: A Primer on the Book of Revelation
by Larry E. Ball
237 pp.; Paperback (Scheduled release date: July 25, 2014)
This book is intended to be a primer on the book of Revelation. A primer is a book for beginners, presenting the most basic elements of a field of study. It is a first step toward understanding something more complicated.
Blessed Is He Who Reads is not a word-by-word, verse-by-verse explanation of Revelation. Rather it moves through Revelation at a fairly fast pace without getting bogged down in the details. It offers the reader the big picture of the meaning, flow, and purpose of Revelation.
And it does some from the redemptive-historical preterist perspective. That is, it sees Revelation as focusing on the destruction of Jerusalem and the temple in AD 70. It generally follows the approach of Kenneth Gentry, David Chilton, and Douglas Kelly.
The book is based on a sermon series Rev. Ball preached on Revelation. It is both insightful and practical. It is therefore informative and encouraging.
