"Revelation: An Admonition to Live as People of Hope"
Speaker: Catherine Cory
Among all the books of the New Testament, the Book of Revelation is perhaps the strangest and most often misunderstood. Some see it as a kind of "war manual," which maps out a plan of action for the impending battle between the righteous ones and the forces of evil. Others see it as a road map of the end time, hoping that they can make themselves safe from the catastrophe that will destroy the world. Still others see its many references to war, bloodshed, grotesque monsters, and cosmological disasters, and wonder how they can possibly reconcile all this violence with Christian belief in a compassionate and loving God.
But the Book of Revelation is so much richer and more profound than any of these (mis)perceptions. In this brief presentation, we will investigate Revelation as an admonition—in words and images—to live as people of hope and promise even in the midst of life’s struggles.
