More About This Title Revelation Road


If you're reading this, we're still alive. The end of the world has not occurred. But it can't be long now, can it? For 2000 years, the Book of Revelation has inspired countless conspiracy theorists, film-makers, writers, and artists, as well as theologians and teachers. But why are we so bothered? After all, the end of the world still hasn't turned up, and it's been quite a while now. When Nick Page wanted to get to the bottom of what this mysterious book is really all about, he realized there was only one way to do it: he had to go to the land of apocalypse. Traveling to Patmos, via the ruined cities of the seven churches of Revelation, and determined to seek out a revelation of his own, Page explores the culture behind Revelation, who wrote it, why they wrote it, and what it means for us today. Mixing history, commentary, creative reconstruction, and sun-crazed traveloge, here at last is the (perhaps not quite) final word on heaven, hell, the four horsemen of the apocalypse, and why the end of the world never does turn up when it's supposed to.


Nick Page, prized for his skills as a writer, speaker, unlicensed historian, applied ranter, and general information-monger, has written over 70 books, including The Tabloid Bible, the Longest Week trilogy and A Nearly Infallible History of Christianity.
