About this product
- DescriptionScholars generally see the aspiration of the Roman Empire and the imperial cult in Asia Mir as the great villain in Revelation , treating the depiction of a cosmic conflict in the book mostly as metaphors that hold little or explanatory power in the story. This book pursues the conviction that the cosmic conflict imagery is the primary and controlling element in the account. Such a reading puts the war-in-heaven theme in the foreground and calls on interpreters to pay more attention to the heavenly being whose attempt to subvert the truth about the divine government is the unremitting concern in Revelation . This book redresses the distortion that results from leaving the larger conflict theme underexposed. Having first developed the story line, it aims is to show that the phrase 'Pistis Iesou' in Revelation is best understood when Revelation is read as a theodicy of God's handling of the reality of evil.
