Beasts, numbers and the end of the world! Cath asks Donald to explain why the book of Revelation was written and how best to understand it. Choosing three passage to study Donald picks his way through some of the controversies and seeks to help us understand what the author intended us to learn. The important truth is that Jesus is not surprised by evil and will conquer it. As we learn to consistently understand the symbolic language and the pictures painted we discover that book is not telling us when, rather that we live ready everyday to meet Jesus.
