As it is in Heaven–I wanted to make sure that you had some helpful next steps for engaging with the book of Revelation.
First of all, I would get the following books:
1. Reading Revelation Responsibly by Michael Gorman
2. Revelation for Everyone (devotional commentary) by N.T. Wright
3. Three Months with Revelation by Justo Gonzalez
These are the best introductions I can offer anyone. With that said, I have put together a list of several other books at my website: Best Commentaries on Revelation.
Secondly, I would invite you to consider subscribing to a podcast called, Rapture Drill: Reframing Revelation, the End Times, and our Weird Obsession with the Apocalypse.
Yes. It is my podcast. This happens to be shameless self-promotion…. sorry about that…. but I think that between the book list and this podcast (keeping in mind the themes from our series, The Dragon and the Sea) that you will learn to read this great book with awe: without all of that weird stuff about blood moons or whatever.
I hope this helps!!!
