 Our Description

 

By Fr. Richard Veras

 

 
The book of Revelation—you might find it fascinating, you might find it incomprehensible, but either way you probably don't think it has much to say about everyday Christian life. A beast with seven heads, locusts with human faces, Death on a pale horse—what could any of this possibly have to do with whether or not you gossip about your colleagues or cheat on your taxes?

Everything, according to Father Richard Veras. The symbolic language of Revelation underscores such foundational truths as God's inescapable presence—"there is no time, place or situation in which he is not"—to the fact that "the army of the beast is not made up of aliens; it is made up of hardened human hearts."

Father Veras's lively exploration of this apocalyptic book will help you understand the ongoing spiritual battle for humanity and the choices you need to make now in order to stand victorious with Jesus at the end of time.
 
Fr. Richard Veras is the pastor of St. Rita Catholic Church in Staten Island, New York and the author of Jesus of Israel: Finding Christ in the Old Testament. He is a priest of the Archdiocese of New York, an active member of the Catholic lay movement Communion and Liberation, and a frequent contributor to Magnificat magazine.

This item received 5 stars overall. Wisdom for Everyday Life - Most appropriate title for any book!

While reading Wisdom for Everyday Life From the Book of Revelation, I am literally holding a treasure trove of life-affirmation in my hands.

The author, Fr. Richard Veras, classifies this book as an introduction – and oh my! What an introduction!

Right away, Fr. Veras sets the context of symbolism in both history and in current culture, ending with the words “As you read the book of Revelation along with me, my hope is that you will discover Jesus anew and thus discover who you are as one of His disciples. You will be amazed at how important your life really is!” (bold is mine)

With these words, my expectations for this book sky-rocketed. They were not left unfulfilled. This book is truly an introduction, but what depth it contains. Portions (lines, paragraphs) beg to be read again, revealing greater richness each time.

The author breaks the Book of Revelation into small chun Full Review...
