This commentary on the book of Revelation combines serious scholarship with contemporary application of the texts, helping the modern reader understand and appreciate the last book of the Bible. For many persons in the church, Revelation has frequently become a non-functioning part of the canon. Reddish believes that the church has an obligation to reclaim the book of Revelation and allow it to speak afresh as a powerful voice containing the message of God.
The visual and auditory richness of Revelation is an important part of the presentation of John's message. Reddish maintains that the visions, symbols, and seemingly strange images in the book are to be experienced more than explained, become the genius of Revelation is found in the cumulative effect of these imaginative components of John's writings.
