The Newest Revelation Commentary

The newest commentary on Revelation, and one that is actually worth having, is the volume on Revelation by Buist Fanning, senior professor emeritus of New Testament studies at Dallas Theological Seminary, in the Zondervan Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament series. I reviewed the book earlier this year for the Journal of Dispensational Theology (Spring 2021, pp. 101-106). I need to point out two typos in the review. The first, which is my fault (although the copy editor should have seen it), is “off-outting” for “off-putting” on the last page. The second, which was introduced by the copy editor, is “recommend” for “recommended,” also on the last page. The biblical books in this series that have not been released yet are 2 Corinthians, Philippians, Pastoral Epistles, Hebrews, 1 & 2 Peter, and Jude. I previously reviewed for the same journal (Winter, 2015, pp. 300-303) the volume on 1 and 2 Thessalonians by Gary Shogren. Although I said in my review that the book was “important to anyone focusing in some way on 1 & 2 Thessalonians,” the book does fall short because the author is not a premillennialist. I have not looked at any of the volumes in the companion series on the Old Testament.
