Prophecy is much more than the events predicted in the Book of Revelation.
It is not just for Bible scholars, pastors, and seminary students. Nearly one fourth of the Scripture was prophetic when it was written, so obviously God intended through these predictions to reveal something about His character and His faithfulness—not just to the people who first heard them, but to us who read them today. Indeed, prophecy does much to demonstrate not only our future hope as believers in Jesus Christ but also the accuracy of the Bible, the righteousness of God, and the meaning of history.
John F. Walvoord, one of the preeminent Bible prophecy scholars in the world today, explains in one volume every key prophecy from Genesis to Revelation—those already fulfilled as well as those yet to be fulfilled. He also discusses the importance of prophecy and guidelines for interpreting it.
