Endorsement of The Glorious Victory

Rev. George van Popta’s homiletical commentary on Revelation is a solid and admirable product. The strength of this volume is that it is committed to the “principial-historical” exposition of Revelation, which allows the author to glean and present universal principles and patterns from the text that are immediately applicable to the church throughout its history. While he has done his academic homework, the focus of his commentary is practical throughout, as all theology should be! The Book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ is powerful. Through his victory Christ empowers the godly, in his holiness he reprimands the presumptuous, and in his reign he holds out the destruction of the wicked. Van Popta’s message faithfully reflects all this! — HENRY KRABBENDAM
