Behold, I Am Coming Soon: Meditations on the Apocalypse

Wipf and Stock


This book contains twelve meditations on the New Testament book of Revelation, written by theologians, biblical scholars, historians, and clergy. In short, easy-to-read selections that are profound and relevant to life, the meditations—along with three or four accompanying questions—help the reader engage more deeply with the Scripture passage. Given the potential challenges of this final book of the Christian canon, these meditations help the reader find a way to enter in and experience more fully what John, the author of the Apocalypse, wanted us to hear and see.



“A facile criticism of seminaries is that their abstract theologizing seems distant from our concrete problems. Behold, I Am Coming Soon belies such effectively. It confronts the off-putting sense many have of Revelation. It offers concise exegetical insights. It shows how it witnesses in its own way to doctrines like grace and justification. Its words about heaven and God’s time offer spiritual refreshment. In sum, the book embodies what the oft-used term ‘integration’ was reaching for. It will be read with profit by academic and lay audiences alike.”
