This series emphasizes a thorough analysis of textual, linguistic, structural, and theological evidence. The result is judicious and balanced insight into the meanings of the text in the framework of biblical theology. These widely acclaimed commentaries serve as exceptional resources for the professional theologian and instructor, the seminary or university student, the working minister, and everyone concerned with building theological understanding from a solid base of biblical scholarship.

Reviews (7)
I purchased all three volumes for the work I am doing on my graduate degree. Aune's commentary is extremely thorough and as you can see from the multiple volumes available, rather lengthy. This is not a commentary for those wishing only to do a basic study of the text for a church Bible study or sermon. I would recommend it mainly for those engaged in deeper academic research of the book of Revelation. I gave it four stars out of five only because it is fully useful only to a certain number of people.

I certainly agree with points made by one reviewer who described these volumes as encyclopaedic "database for specialists", but that is inconsistant with his being doubtful of the usefulness of some sections and their level of detail. He may never had to write an exegesis paper for a graduate level course on a biblical subject. Of course, I am giving away my point of view. That said, I would NEVER recommend this book, or any one of its volumes to the casual reader who wanted to know something about Revelation. I would not even recommend the Word series for pastors. For that, there are lots of really good books, such as Ben Witherington's social commmentary or Elizabeth Schussler Fiorenza's feminist leaning commentary, or best of all, Bruce Metzger's "Breaking the Code".

The Word series is for professors who teach in seminaries, and who deal with deep textual and translational problems. This is especially true of Aune's three volumes.That is as long as Nolland's 3 volumes on the Gospel of Luke, which is longer book in the Bible. Part of this may be due to the fact that Revelation may be the most poorly written book in the Greek New Testament. Even as late as Erasmus' 1516 edition of the Greek NT, we did not have good sources for the whole book. Erasmus filled in the gaps by back translating parts from St. Jerome's Latin translation. (These missing Greek pieces have since been found. Jerome did NOT make those parts up.)

I have used several different works in the Word commentary series, alway with some other commentary open at the same time. Almost invariably, the Word contribution is more even handed, more thorough, and more accurate in avoiding far fetched theories about the text. Aune, however, does stray from this standard in a big way with his theory, ably described in Mr. Garrow's review. I will also agree with Mr. Garrow's review of the first volume, and his source, Dr. Richard Bauckham, that unlike the Gospel of John, for example, Revelation is probably the result of a single hand, maybe not all in one sitting, but that would help to explain the atrocious Greek.

Reading Word commentaries can be a bit tedious, but if you are looking for information on an especially detailed matter in the text, this is the place to come. I think library search software may someday replace the Word series, but that time has not yet come.

Funny duck
This commentary is extremely thorough and goes deep into the study of this portion of God’s Word.

Very good!

David Aune's Tour De Force on Revelation is by far the best on this hard-to-interpret book. Aune does a fine job with the introduction and background material that is necessary for interpreting the book. I had a professor say in reference to Aune's 3 volume commentary, "John, in the Spirit on the Lord's day, didn't have as much to say about Revelation as Aune does." Aune is a great scholar and his commentary shows his great prowess. His commentary set is recommended for those who have extensive background in original languages and heavy Theology. Another key thing to have a great grasp on is the Old testament. Revelation is full of OT imagery. Overall, 4.5 out of 5 on this commentary set.


thank you

This volume on Revelation Chapters 17-22 culminates David Aune's massive three-volume commentary on the book of Revelation. If you're looking for trendy interpretation of this last book of our English Bible or the breaking of a secret code that will allow you to identify the symbols in Revelation with events as they unfold on television's evening news, you'll be sorely disappointed. Aune's commentary is definitely an in-depth, scholarly commentary. As is true many of the volumes in the Word Biblical Commentary series, someone who is already familiar with this book in particular and New Testament scholarship in general and who has a working knowledge of Greek will be the primary beneficiary of Aune's erudition. While there are practical applications in what Aune writes, they are certainly not at the forefront. And so I don't recommend this commentary for someone studying Revelation for the first time. However, the serious biblical scholar will find Aune's commentary fascinating and worth the effort of studying it carefully.
