Revelation Unveiled At Last

99% of books and articles on the book of Revelation are rubbish.  100% of books on Revelation sold by your local Christian bookstore are rubbish.

Which is why you probably won't find Elaine Pagels' new book there.

Jim West today provided a link to an interview with Pagels on NPR's Fresh Air.  It's definitely worth a listen, so get it while you can.  Just imagine what the folks at Dallas Theological Seminary could learn from this if they bothered to prise their minds open just a millimeter or so.  Or Spanky Meredith, Dave the Packatollah or Gerry Six Pack...

Fat chance.  Not only does Pagels have an informed position (heretic!) but she's a (gasp) woman!  But why not download the podcast and arm yourself with a little free and cogent information?

Sadly, the book itself is not yet available in e-book format.

  1. This amounts to more speculation on the Apocalypse.

    The whole book can be summed up as the revealing of the kingdom of God, which has at last appeared in the form of the Xian church (the real Israel).

    The beast (Rome) has destroyed Mystery Babylon (Jerusalem) and the accuser of the brethren (the Jewish authority) has been cast down from their position.

    Jesus will now return shortly and raise the dead, destroy the beast, judge Israel and reign for a thousand years.

    After that, the rest of the people of the world will be judged and destroyed and the saints will live happily ever after on cloud nine.
