The subtitle of this book published by Wipf and Stock is Worship for Life in the Spirit of Prophecy. The worship that Revelation exhorts and enables is in the divine Spirit of prophetic witness against all forms of idolatrous worship in favor of a true worship of the Lord God and the Lord Jesus Christ, the Lamb, for an eternal and heavenly life. The audience may begin this worship in the Eucharistic supper into which Revelation leads them by inviting them to respond to the promise of Jesus, “Yes, I am coming soon,” with “Amen! Come Lord Jesus!” They thereby welcome the Lord Jesus to the Eucharistic supper that anticipates his final coming and the divine grace, the gift of eternal life, of the Lord Jesus that is intended to be the destiny of all.
Dr Ian Boxall’s new book Discovering Matthew: Content, interpretation, reception has just been published by SPCK. This introduction to the interpretation of Matthew’s Gospel draws on a range of methodological approaches (author-, text- and reader-centered), as complementary rather than mutually exclusive ways of interpreting the Gospel. In particular, it reflects the growing scholarly attention to the reception history of biblical texts.
