Book Review: More Than Conquerors

more than conquerorsMore Than Conquerors: An Interpretation of the Book of Revelation (75th Anniversary Commemorative Edition) by William Hendriksen lays out a comprehensive view of the overall meaning of Revelation, a theory of the structure of the text, and a view of how best to interpret the structure and sections of the final book of the Bible.

The author presents his case well and with study notes from respected scholars to help bolster his case.  The thoughts are clear and the arguments hold weight of credibility.

For a person looking for a book with substance without the bulk of a commentary, this is a good book.  This is both a strength and weakness of the book. The strength is self-evident. The weakness is that Hendriksen doesn’t give much room, though he does give some room, to interact with other healthy scholarship that holds to differing views.

Personally, I do not agree with all of the author’s interpretations, assumptions, and conclusions, but I do commend the time and thought put forth by Hendriksen.
