Recommended Reading for Revelation: Comfort and Protest
Written during the height of the apartheid struggles in South Africa, Comfort and Protest by Allan Boesak gives us a study of Revelation in light of oppression and suffering. Looking at the church’s relationship to the world, this book provides a vision of love and justice and a message of hope in the midst of persecution and despair.
A unique perspective on Revelation, Boesak’s commentary is filled with passion and a call for justice and the defeat of evil.
“The Apocalypse speaks not only of the suffering of the faithful,” says Boesak, “It speaks also of the destruction of evil and the victory of the Lamb.”
