The Gospel & The Revelation
"From first to last the vision given to St. John in exile was to bless and encourage believers (Revelation 1:3, 22:7). But would John recognize the way his book is understood in the Church today? In this remarkable seminar, Dr. Ron helps us hear these words of life in ways familiar to the original readers so that they stir and strengthen our faith like the author intended." ~ James Whitman
