The Book of Revelation

The Revelation of Saint John the Evangelist forms a worthy conclusion to the whole of sacred Scripture, presenting a wonderful counterpart to the first book, the Books of Genesis. It is a sacred text which has resounded through the centuries and has exercised an enormous influence. Apart from its great religious significance and other importance, this fundamental book possesses a special literary value since there is nothing quite like it in world literature. 

'Revelation' consists of 22 chapters. But the text unfolds rapidly. It concerns, as the author tells us, the Revelation which God gave to Christ and which through His angel He made known - revealed - to John who at the time was on exile on the island called Patmos. -- Preface
