When it comes to selecting a book of the Bible to study or teach, Revelation is a book we often avoid. We’re a bit intimidated by it—afraid we won’t be able to understand it, afraid of the controversy that surrounds it, and afraid of the realities it presents in its graphic strangeness.

We also know it’s a book some people have an unhealthy obsession with. The book of Revelation actually begins and ends with a promise—a promise of blessing for those who hear what’s revealed in it and allow that revelation to shape their perspective about what’s real, what will last, and who is worthy of worship.

In this workshop, recorded live at The Gospel Coalition’s 2022 Women’s Conference, Nancy Guthrie addresses fears many have in regard to the book of Revelation—the fears of not understanding it, fears of controversy, persecution, and its depictions of God’s judgments—offering reasons to invest ourselves in understanding this challenging book as well as keys that will unlock its meaning and application.
