Revelation: A hopeful book?

When you hear someone mention the Book of Revelation, what is your first thought? Mine… is to run away as quickly as possible. The reality is that the vast majority of people who quote passages from this book don’t entirely know what they’re talking about and are use its words to promote conspiracy theories, doomsday predictions, and condemnations against the Catholic Church.

Hard pass.

But that doesn’t mean that the book itself is wrong or problematic. In fact, it’s a great book. Surprisingly hopeful. Kind of the exact thing we need in our day. In this episode of Catholicism in Focus, I offer a few keys to approaching the book in the correct way, as well as a brief overview of its contents.

  1. I am a Christian. I am not Catholic, Mormon, Buddhist or any of those other denominations or religions. When I hear you speak on Revelation, I listen and take it very seriously.

  2. Right on! Thank you. We can never be reminded enough to focus on the goodness of God, and not on all the evil around us.
