A Commentary on the Revelation of John Reviews

    This is a reasonably short and easy to read commentary on Revelation, with some but not much technical/linguistic material. He spends some time reviewing alternative interpretations, but generally focuses on historical premillennial interpretation. He treats the Bible as the authoritative Word of God while still viewing much of the material in Revelation as symbolic. Generally a very good commentary.

    Three things about this book appealed to me. First, he had a unique discussion of the seals as being prepatory for the tribulation, but not a part of it. He reasons that they cannot be a part of the tribulation if the book has not been opened (unsealed) yet. He believes that the seals are all discriptions of the course of this present age. The problem with this view is that the trumpets and vials are all part of the seventh seal. Second, Ladd addresses translation and textual problems in the KJV. This is nowhere as important as in Rev. 4-5 with regards to the 24 elders. If the KJV is right, then the pretrib position is given great support. If the critical texts and modern translations are right, then posttrib seems more reasonable. Third, Ladd provides for historic premillennialism a true eschatology of victory. He speaks of the martyrs, the courageous advance of the gospel around the world -- all a part of apostolic and historic premillennialism. A very good, sane, and sound book.

    A helpful commentary. Historic premillennial. Ladd was bit dismissive of dispensationalists, even calling them "extreme futurists." C'mon!

    From an historic angle it is okay.

    The clearest explanation from a post-tribulation position.

    This book is considered a classic on post-tribulation premill eschatology.
