I have had the opportunity from time to time to write for Barclay Press. They have recently updated their website and created author pages, making some previously unavailable writings available online. Therefore, I wanted to share the link to the .pdf of my upcoming series of reflections on the book of Revelation published in the Fruit of the Vine, which are now available online.
In these reflections, I attempt to follow a more liberatory reading of the book of Revelation. Rather than reading it as a book about the end of the world, I suggest, following plenty of good scholarship, that this book really gives us a small glimpse into how the small, fledgling “minority” church, attempted to survive the oppressive imperial Roman regime. These reflections are based on a series of sermons I did on the subject in the spring of 2013 – those articles can be found here. Themes I cover in these reflections rooted in Revelation are nonviolence, justice for the poor and the beloved community. I hope you will enjoy it.
