Court, Revelation (NT Guides)

Court, John M.: Revelation. (New Testament Guides). Sheffield: JSOT (imprint of Sheffield Academic Press), 1994. 134 pp.

Court’s 133 page guide contains five chapters containing an outline and five themes (Chapter 2), discussion of the genre (Chapter 3), discussion of the historical and social context (Chapter 4) and a treatment of its abiding theological Values and Doctrines (Chapter 5).

Court is very familiar with Revelation scholarship (his own dissertation, Myth and History in Revelation, was published 1979) and gives an excellent short bibliography including recommendations for further reading. Two indices of References and Authors end this book.

This book is indeed a good guide to not only Revelation, but also Revelation scholarship.
