The Book of Revelation is best read as peace literature, even though most Christians in the past 2,000 would not agree. I will be developing the case for such a reading in a series of posts. These will be drawn from a set of sermons I am presenting at Shalom Mennonite Congregation in Harrisonburg, VA, during 2008 and 2009.
In the posts I will summarize the main points of my argument that are developed at more length in the sermons. The full written versions of the sermons will be available in the “page” area of this site. Click here for the first sermon, “Living in Apocalyptic Times.”
