Revelations: Visions, Prophecy, and Politics in the Book of Revelation Reviews

  • Mark Russell
    I gave Revelations five stars, not only because it is a good book, but because it is an important book. No other book in the Bible has as much impact on our way of life as the Book of Revelation. It influences our nation's religion, worldview and foreign policy in a way that the gospels do not, and ...

    Look. If Pagels writes a book, go buy it. You don't need a review, you just need a reminder that it's ready for purchase. But then I'd feel like I wasn't doing my job, so ...I’ve been looking forward to Pagel's new book, hoping I would read her views on how to interpret Revelation, but this was...

    Elaine Pagels is my favorite author when it comes to the history of Christianity. When I read her my mind roams on topics personal and universal.

    Having had Pagels for a course in seminary and knowing her and her husband socially during that period while my girlfriend studied under her at Barnard I make a point of picking up her publications as they come to hand. I wasn't expecting much from this popular study of apocalyptic literature except...

    Don’t Hold Your Breath for the End of the WorldMany years ago - at least thirty but possibly as many as forty as far as I can recall with an ageing memory - I visited the cave on the island of Patmos where a certain John had his apocalyptic vision and wrote his account if it. The cave is now in...

    Author Elaine Pagels includes here discussion of not only John of Patmos's Book of Revelations, so well-known from the New Testament, but also discussion of the numerous revelation texts found at Nag Hammadi in Upper Egypt in 1945. These are the so-called gnostic or apocryphal texts expunged by orde...
