Where does evil come from? Why is it present in our world and within our own lives? Why do the innocent suffer and – too often – the powerful prevail? If there is a God and he is good, why is the world that he created constantly marred by conflict, war and natural disaster? Such huge questions, with which humanity has grappled since the very beginning, lie at the heart of Revelation, that mesmerizing and often puzzling book of the Bible.
David Winter takes us on a step-by-step journey through the apocalyptic and mysterious visions of Revelation, which face the awfulness of much of earthly life head-on. While it is not always an easy journey, it is a deeply rewarding one, for amid the maelstrom of passion, and despite the blood and horses and beasts from the pit, the light of divine purpose, hope and love shines. We shall face the darkness over these pages, but we shall also find the light.
