The Book of Revelation, often simply known as 'Revelation or' by a number of variants expanding upon its authorship or subject matter, is the final book of the New Testament and occupies a central part in Christian eschatology. Written in Koine Greek, its title is derived from the first word of the text, apokalypsis, meaning "unveiling" or "revelation". The author of the work identifies himself in the text as "John" and says that he was on Patmos, an island in the Aegean, when he "heard a great voice" instructing him to write the book. This John is traditionally supposed to be John the Apostle, although recent scholarship has suggested other possibilities including a putative figure given the name John of Patmos. Most modern scholars believe it was written around 95 AD, with some believing it dates from around 70 AD. Perhaps no other book in the New Testament cannon has been written about so often. "The True Interpretation Of The Revelation Of John And The Bible" is a 292 page compendium by Kostas Tzouvelekis in which he reveals and documents a number of critical errors in tradition interpretations of elements of 'The Revelation of John'. These errors include popular and theological misconceptions such as the proclamation of a Rapture event; seven years of 'Tribulation'; the coming of an Antichrist; the personal return of Jesus Christ to the earth who will war against and defeat the Antichrist. In addition to these common misperceptions, Tzouvelekis also refutes the secular scientific theory of the 'Big Bang'; Superstring Theory; Hyperspace Theory; Dark Matter Theory; and several more prevailing scientific theories seeking to provide descriptive explanations of the Universe. An iconoclastic read, "The True Interpretation Of The Revelation Of John And The Bible" is thoughtful and thought-provoking, making it highly recommended reading which is also available in an ebook edition at www.revlation-decoded.com
