Resseguie, Revelation Unsealed

Resseguie, James L. Revelation Unsealed: A Narrative Critical Approach to John’s Apocalypse. (Biblical Interpretation Series, 32). Leiden: E. J. Brill, 1998. 233 pp.

Published in 1998 (as is James Barr’s study), Resseguie likewise provides a narrative critical analysis of Revelation. In many ways, Resseguie’s methodology is less explicit than Barr’s, but he provides quite many very useful observations and this monograph should receive careful attention. Barr’s and Resseguie’s analyses illustrate that a narrative critical approach may result in quite different interpretations.

Interesting as both studies are, they definitely call for more analyses of this sort, perhaps providing a possibility for Revelation scholarship to advance further.
