The final book of the Holy Scriptures describes a dramatic, often terrifying vision by John, who may or may not have been the same John who was an apostle to Jesus Christ. A prisoner on the island of Patmos, John sees the unveiling of Christ as He really is, through colorful and haunting symbols depicting the trials and tribulations of the saints of God, as well as the coming New Jerusalem. This book is believed to have been written this way as a kind of "secret code" for Christians suffering under the intense persecution of Rome. (Introduction by Mark Penfold)
