A lot of members, not to mention cults themselves -- *cough*david*coughcough*koresh -- get hung up on the Book of Revelations.

In the interest of de-mystifying some of it (if that's even possible given all the drama that surrounds it), here are resources that should prove helpful, and I wish someone had shared with me long ago:

  • Revelations in Plain English (just read the non-italicized parts) by Book Cap Study Guides
  • Comprehensive history of how this book influenced Western civilization by Jonathan Kirsch
  • Part 6 of the TTC course on the "Apocalypse, Controversies and Meaning in Western History", which if you read the corresponding chapters in the Plain English version, should make a whole more sense.

(let me know if you want the entire TTC course)


Quotes on Revelations:

"Revelations: A curious record of the visions of a drug addict." - George Bernard Shaw

"REVELATION, n. A famous book in which St. John the Divine concealed all that he knew. The revealing is done by the commentators, who know nothing." - The Devil's Dictionary (Ambrose Bierce)

"The second half of the Apocalypse is flamboyant hate and simple lust...for the end of the world.” - D. H. Lawrence
