Availability: Ready to download

In this classic study, St. John s Revelation is approached as a great and singular theological poem. Austin Farrer shows how the poem arose in an inspired mind, by what processes of divination its author explored the realm of supernatural truth, how he used the images of his Old Testament faith and gave them fresh meaning in the context of his scheme.
