Coming this March will be the newest entry in the Catholic Commentary on Sacred Scripture series from Baker Academic. It is Revelation by Peter Williamson. The book of Revelation is interesting to many but it will be nice to have a uniquely Catholic take on the book. Here are two glowing endorsements.
“Peter Williamson has written a balanced, clear, informative, and insightful commentary on Revelation that is both Catholic and catholic. Attentive to the first-century context, the history of interpretation, and Christian liturgy and life, it offers us–like Revelation itself–guidance for the spiritual struggle between the first and second comings of the Lord.”
Michael J. Gorman, Raymond E. Brown Professor of Biblical Studies and Theology, St. Mary’s Seminary and University, Baltimore. He is the author of Reading Revelation Responsibly (Wipf and Stock)
“Dr. Williamson, drawing on the best scholarship, has done an excellent job making sense out of a book that is notoriously difficult to interpret. Academically sound, pastorally useful, spiritually inspiring. Highly recommended.”
Ralph Martin, STD, director of Graduate Theology Programs in the New Evangelization, Sacred Heart Major Seminary, Archdiocese of Detroit
Peter S. Williamson (STD, Pontifical Gregorian University) holds the Adam Cardinal Maida Chair in Sacred Scripture at Sacred Heart Major Seminary in Detroit, Michigan. He is the author of several books, including Ephesians in the Catholic Commentary on Sacred Scripture and Catholic Principles for Interpreting Scripture. He is also the coeditor of John Paul II and the New Evangelization.
Watch for this in March. It will be a paperback with 384 pages and sell for $22.99.
