I was wondering if we could look into getting this book on Logos at some point in the future. I've heard good reviews about it from a professor of mine here the seminary.  It's available on kindle, but I think it would be so much better to have it on Logos.

Here is the website explaining more about that book: http://secondcomingpublishing.com 

Here is a little excerpt about the book: 

"With so many new ways of interpreting the Bible’s final book of Revelation emerging in recent years, Dr. Kenneth Mathews has invested ten years of intense research and writing to produce this significant new commentary, firmly rooted in the historicist school of interpreting Bible prophecy. Historicism has been generally accepted by end-time believers preaching from the book of Revelation until the last 30 years or so. Now, writers are beginning to incorporate idealist and eclectic interpretations into the book, resulting in confusion to the reader. We may actually be less certain on our understanding of Daniel and Revelation now than we were 30 years ago. This book makes an attempt to clarify Revelation from a true historicist perspective and isolate those eclectic interpretations that have encroached upon the text.

Among his goals in writing Revelation Reveals Jesus, Dr. Mathews desires to bring together, to each chapter and verse, the best of the best in resources. That includes the following:

  • The best insights of the original Bible languages
  • The best insights that emerge from comparing Scripture with Scripture
  • The best understandings of Revelation that come from its companion book of Daniel
  • The best comments from other Christian scholars on Revelation
  • The best comments from other Adventist Christian scholars on Revelation
  • The best comments from the most respected historians
  • The best observations to be drawn from comparing Revelation’s predictions with current events
  • The best health and medical insights a physician-author can offer
  • The best comments from the pen of Adventist founder-author Ellen White

Anyone who reads this commentary will note the sheer volume of its detail and information. But any reader will also be profoundly moved by its frequent spiritual challenges and motivated by the sense of urgency it conveys. Urgency, because the final events of Revelation are happening, not soon—but NOW. Urgency, because the One revealed in Revelation—the Dying and then Risen Lamb, the King of kings, the Lord of lords, our Friend and Saviour—is almost here! His return IS sure, and His interruption of our daily “business as usual” is certain!

You will, most assuredly, finish reading this commentary more determined than ever to make preparing for that Great Day your highest priority and to do all you can to be sure as many others as possible—especially those you love and care about—are also prepared to meet Jesus.

This book—just as the Bible book it explores—is ultimately about Jesus.

“Even so, come, Lord Jesus!”"

I have got this two volume commentary in print, and I agree: It deserves to be in Logos. Kenneth has self-published it, so it should be easy to negotiate the terms to get it into Logos.

An interesting quote from the book:

When we are reading any book about the Bible, we should carefully read the first chapter. A good Bible expositor should tell you in the introduction of his book how he is going to interpret Scriptures. We should have no doubt as to whether or not he believes the Bible and which direction he is taking with his interpretation. The presuppositions of writers or students will largely determine how they will interpret the Scriptures. The writer owes it to us to be up front as to how he is going to approach Scripture. And we owe it to ourselves to know what our own principles of interpretation are.

Yes, lets get this into Logos!

He does a lot of training the reader before he starts in on reviewing Scripture. About 10% of the book.

What a unique thought !  That's precisely what the author says that he intends to do.  I haven't read the book, but too frequently the author's objective of revealing Jesus is left by the wayside.  Hopefully the author of the commentary means what he says.

Martin,

It is one of the freshest and most scholarly books on Revelation that I have come across in a long time.  Dr. Matthews has done his homework and presents a clear cause for historical critical methodology and SDA theological thought.  A must read!

Thank you for this initiative!

I agree and would like to add those 2 volumes to my electronic logos library.

I used this commentary during my studies with great benefit, therefore I bought the hard cover version some years ago.

To have the 2 volumes in Logos will make them more handy.
