Summary Since it was written in the first century AD, the Book of Revelation has been seen as one of the most controversial books in the entire Bible. Scholars still debate whether it is a literal depiction of what will come at the end time when humanity will face the last judgement. Or whether it is an allegorical text in which John is calling on the burgeoningChristian church to stand true to their faith in the face of oppression from the Roman Empire.These two opposing interpretations lie at the heart of Dr Robert Beckford's journey. Robert sets out to discover what message really lies at the heart of this book. He explores whether it really is a step-by-step guidebook to the events leading up to the end times, or the alternative interpretation that Revelation is a call to arms, proclaiming the revolutionary message that mankind can create heaven on earth.
