Revelation Front Cover     Rev Commentary Cover

  My studies on the Book of Revelation are now available in two versions.  The 
  golden brown edition above is the Revelation coursebook (commentary, study
  questions, quizzes, and exams).  The bluish edition above is the commentary
  only.  Both are available on Amazon.  Click either cover above, and you will
  be taken to the Amazon page on which you can order it.
