    One thought on “Apocalypse: Controversies and Meaning in Western History”

    1. The preferred source of literary inspiration for Hunter S. Thompson, the Book of Revelation at times reads like the product of one of his drug-and-anger-fueled rants. Its powerful but enigmatic symbolism have led thousands of interpreters into the desert of understanding (which is just outside Barstow) and thousands more into a mire of prophecy untethered from the book's historical context. Professor Koester does a fine job of remedying all that, even if his lectures are a little too diplomatic [...]

    3. I enjoyed listening to this fascinating series of lectures. I once held the dispensational belief that is so popular these days until I started studying my bible inductively and aw things just didn't line up. Then I began to see the roots of dispensationalism for what it was. I found the history and symbolic meaning to be great lectures.

    4. Interesting read from the literary analysis angle on Revelation. I do agree with Dr. Koester that reading Revelation uncritically imbue the reader with certain doom and gloom and forms a particularly unhealthy outlook of the world. It is also amusing to see a certain hubris, slight as it may, coming through in his presentation and arrangement of content.

    5. A well balanced look at the book of revelations, the study of the book and how it has been used by different cultures- the section on the book of revelation applied in music was particularly interesting.

    6. Definitely enjoyed the lectures. Very interesting from a academic perspective to see the influences of the Revelation text on social development. Also interesting, albeit less discussed, is how social trends changed the text itself. Very engaging.

    7. Craig Koester is an engaging lecturer. The lecture itself was well thought out and I thought he did a good job exploring the different viewpoints and historical context of the Book of Revelations.
