The Book of Revelation in Orthodox Christian Traditionretreat lectures on compact disk4-CD Set
These lectures offer a fresh approach to reading the Book of Revelation and understanding its complex messages. While Fr Hopko notes that ‚Äúeverything about the Apocalypse is controversial‚Äînot only in modern scholarship but also in church history,‚Äù he grounds the place of this cryptic writing within the context of ongoing life in the Orthodox Church. In particular, he draws attention to the symbols and words originating in the Hebrew scriptures and demonstrates that the Book of Revelation not only has inspired the Liturgy of the Church but also has been inspired by it. Fr Hopko transforms the typical, modern exegesis of this biblical text from one of literal fundamentalism and futuristic prophecy to one of experiencing eternal life, here and now, in the worship of the Church.
