G. Erik Brandt. Orem, Utah: Granite Publishing and Distribution, 2009. Hardbound, 6 x 9", 588 pages.
The Lord expects us to seek wisdom, to ponder his revealed truths, and to gain knowledge of them by the power of his Spirit. Otherwise he would not have revealed them to us.
This impressive book succeeds in opening up the Book of Revelation to clearer understanding. Though it is scholarly and comprehensive, the text is not ponderous or difficult to read. The format leads the reader along nicely and makes its points in a logical and concise manner.
Erik Brandt also provides valuable and extensive historical background that greatly clarifies the Revelator's purpose and intent in writing to the Saints of the seven ancient branches of the Church. The fanciful imagery and obscure metaphors that have traditionally made the Revelation difficult to interpret are explained in easy-to-understand language. To further illuminate John's meaning, the author also draws extensively upon the writings of the prophets as found in the Bible, Book of Mormon, Doctrine & Covenants, and Pearl of Great Price.
