Because of its helpful charts and basic level of discussion, J.-P. Prevost's How to
Read the Apocalypse (New York: Crossroad, 1993) is a fine brief introduction to

Eerdmans, 2001). THE GENRE OF REVELATION Most scholars see the book of
Revelation as some kind of apocalypse or a work of apocalyptic prophecy within

In the first place, the number symbolisms of John in Revelation should not be
used to argue against an earthly kingdom. It might be said that the number is
symbolic of a perfect period of time of whatever length (so Craig Koester,
Revelation and the End of All Things [Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 2001]).The
essence of premillennialism is in its insistence that the reign will be on earth, not
in heaven, for a period of time before the final judgment and the new heaven and
new earth.

Anchoress, Anchorite An anchorite is a type of ‡hermit who lives in a cell, with the
deliberate intention of being cut off from the world. The three women for whom
the Ancrene Riwle was written had chosen this form of the devoted life, framed
around prayer and self-denial. Apocalypse and apocalyptic Apocalyptic is a form
of †prophetic writing that speaks in the highly- wrought language of dreams,
visions, and ‡revelations usually about the end of all things or the final revelation
of God.
