Book Review - The Avenging of the Apostles: A Commentary on Revelation

The Avenging of the Apostles: A Commentary on Revelation, by Arthur M. Ogden, Reviewed by Kenneth L. Gentry, Jr., Th.D.

The evangelical world suffers from a dearth of good commentaries on Revelation. There are a number of quality commentaries available that are helpful on technical and historical matters. But for the most part modern commentaries are encumbered by a refusal to take seriously the first three verses in Revelation. That is, they are reluctant to consider the utility of the evangelical preterist approach to this great prophetic work. Oftentimes that reluctance is based on erroneously equating preterism with liberalism, due to the widespread employment of a liberal preteristic methodology.
