The Book of Revelation

Although an exercise in hyperbole, Eugene Peterson's words concerning the Book of Revelation are a good reminder not to neglect the study of Revelation.

"The Revelation gives us the last word on Christ, and the word is that Christ is center and at the center. Without this controlling center, the Bible is a mere encyclopedia of religion with no more plot than a telephone directory."

Eugene H. Peterson, Reversed Thunder (New York: Harper Collins, 1988), 28.
