About the Author
With an uninterrupted printing history since it was first published in 1939, Dr. Hendriksen's interpretation of the Book of Revelation has served as a solid resource and a source of inspiration for generations. "In form, symbolism, purpose, and meaning the Book of Revelation is beautiful beyond description," writes William Hendriksen. Using sound principles of interpretation, More than Conquerors unfolds the mysteries of the apocalypse gradually, always with the purpose of showing that "we are more than conquerors through Christ who loved us." As a pastor, teacher, and writer, Dr. Hendriksen was widely known for his ability to combine scholarship with simplicity and warmth. Whether you are a beginning or an advanced student of God's Word, you will be enlightened and inspired by More than Conquerors. In this commentary, Dr. Hendriksen challenges you to face a restless and confusing world with a joyful, confident spirit, secure in the knowledge that God reigns and is coming again soon. This straightforward and understandable interpretation makes a helpful resource for pastors, teachers, small group leaders, and anyone who regularly reads the Bible.
This is a classic interpretation of Revelation and one that I recommend for the layman. The first edition came out in 1939. It is of the idealist and Amillennial School, which makes Revelation meaningful today and not just to the future. He recognises that the purpose of Revelation is to 'comfort the militant Church in its struggle against the forces of evil'. It is not a verse by verse commentary, he discusses one passage at a time, which means that the book is readable. He is, as you would expect, thoroughly biblical and avoids the speculative nonsense that surrounds Revelation today. If you want a scriptural interpretation of Revelation then I warmly commend this book to you.
