I hope to complete a new commentary on Revelation sometime in 2019. It reshapes material especially from my 2011-3 sermons (#1 below) and the running commentary I wrote while I was preparing those sermons (#4 below). The writing I have done on Revelation is organized in the following seven sections:

(1) Revelation sermons (recent). This is a series of sermons begun in September 2011 and concluded in November 2013.

(2) “What does the book of Revelation say?” a series of blog posts on that summarizes these recent sermons.

(3) Revelation sermons (older). Here are two short series of sermons, five from 2008-09 and four from 1996. Other sermons on Revelation will also be posted here.

(4) Revelation commentary. This is a running series of notes commenting on Revelation. They are part of my preparation of the sermon series.

(5) Triumph of the Lamb. This is the book I published in 1987.

(6) Articles and Presentations on Revelation.

(7) Recent blog posts [2016-18] at my Thinking Pacifism site.
