@DennyBurk Interview on Revelation: The Spirit Speaks to the Churches

My dear friend and fellow pastor Denny Burk blessed me with a blog interview on Revelation: The Spirit Speaks to the Churches. Here are the questions:

 

What is the main point of Revelation? What is the genre?

 

If much of the prophecy in Revelation symbolizes early Christian conflict with Rome, then why not take a Preterist reading of the book?

 

Did John write Revelation, or did some other John write it? Is that relevant to our interpretation of the book?

 

Is rapture doctrine taught in Revelation?

 

What about the interpretation of Revelation 4:1 that says “come up here” is a reference to the rapture?

 

Does revelation teach that there will be a literal 1,000 year reign of Christ on earth?

Here I list seven reasons to be pre-mil

What’s your millennial position, and how does Revelation inform your view?

 

What do you say to pastors who do not preach Revelation because it is either too difficult or too divisive?

 

Did you split your church when you preached it?

 

Check out the interview here. Amazon should have the book soon, and it’s available now from Crossway.

I assume that anyone who looks at this blog is already subscribed to Denny’s, but just in case there’s someone who isn’t, I highly recommend it. Don’t miss him on twitter, either.

Thanks for the opportunity, Denny!
