Revelation has been misunderstood by ministers and laymen alike since its canonization in the Bible. It has been interpreted in so many ways that it is confusing to the average Bible student, therefore, many today make very little or no attempt to understand its truths.

It uses the 39 books of the Old Testament and 27 books of the New Testament in the Bible to interpret the book of Revelation -- Scripture interpreting Scripture. You see, God has hidden the symbols and mysteries of Revelation within the Bible itself. When we make this amazing discovery we will have more]Understanding Revelation, the title of this book.
