Maier, Johannesoffenbarung

Maier, Gerhard. Die Johannesoffenbarung und die Kirche. (WUNT, 25). Tübingen: J.C.B. Mohr, 1981.

This book with more than 600 pages is one of the most profound studies of the history of interpretation of Revelation.

It thesis is that the chiliastic interpretation is the correct one, and it follows the debate between chiliasts and anti-chiliasts throughout the history.

The author was principal at Albrecht Bengel Haus in Tübingen and admires Bengel.

As a book with a very broad presentation, you might disagree with a lot in this book (as I do personally). Nevertheless, it is a classic.
