Revelation: A Biography

A cultural history of the New Testament book of Revelation, describing how the book was created and has been reinterpreted and reinvented over the years.

A cultural history of the New Testament book of Revelation and the apocalyptic imaginations it has fueled, telling the story of the many, often wildly contradictory lives of this strangely familiar, sometimes horrifying, sometimes inspiring biblical vision. It is the story of how Revelation keeps becoming something new, reinventing itself, taking on new forms of life in the hearts and minds and imaginations of those who become its hosts. The book will be published by Princeton University Press in the trade series, "Lives of Great Religious Books," which publishes books by leading authors and scholars for general audiences.
