Matt Dorff: The Book of Revelation

Will come to pass The monsters are disturbing the angels are intimidating and the end of the world is ghastly Interestingly enough the art reflects the customs and attire of when The Book of Revelation was first written it looks as the world did thousands of years ago We often think of the end of the world as being our 2012 future but I suppose upon reflection after it was initially written the future was very much our long ago pastThis work is a translation by Fr Mark Arey and Fr Philemon Sevastiades and it was adapted by Matt Dorff But the art is what truly makes this a uniue version It is sensible yet fantastical gruesome yet gorgeous If you are interested in a distinctive interpretation of The Book of Revelation I ighly recommend this exceptional work Review PENDINGAfter just spending time with reading and reviewing The Action Bible New Testament God s Redemptive Story and The Action Bible Devotional 52 Weeks of God Inspired Adventure I thought this would be a great time to pick up The Book of Revelation While these are both graphic novels The Action Bible and it s derivatives are along the lines of a comic book but The Book of Revelation is not a comic book This book is a graphic novel with emphasis on the idea of graphic and is not meant for a young audience I Palace Intrigue (A Medieval Tale had my Enginerd read through this one ande was fascinated and speechless about many of the pages and said the images could be nightmare inspiring As it rightly says at Stumbled upon this in a search for an interesting book of Revelation rendition This is a gem The are is fast paced and corresponds to to book The pictures were wild and unsettling I liked the imagery interpretation It put some concepts in a different and new light for me to stew on Not for younger children though probably 13 and up but depends on your taste This graphic novel elped me to understand Revelations much betterI loved the beautiful illustrations Lots of talent went into this translation of the book of Revelatio. Lfillment of John's faith as the final battle is fought between God and Satan Including a translation by Fr Mark Arey and Fr Philemon Sevastiades an adaptation by Matt Dorff and illustrations by renowned artist Chris Koelle The Book of Revelation is an emotionally stirring and thought provoking way to experience this timeless narrative.

Further brings to life what John did so wonderfully already I can t stress ow beautiful this art is I wasn t too sure if I liked this graphic novel It was interesting though seeing someone s rendition of the book of Revelation from the Bible I Carlyle Marney had some disagreements about certain things depicted When the book of Revelation talks about the Lamb in chapter five the artist Chris Koelle actually depicted the Lamb as an actual lambman Iave to admit it was a little scary looking That was probably my biggest problem with the entire graphic novel The other things are minor I Shameful had aard time with ow dark the book was I know it s going to be a dark time in istory but Heaven doesn t need to be dark Where God is seated on the throne it was dark around Sacred Landscapes him I just can t imagine that God would illuminate everything The angels were cool though And the graphic novel was probably the best illustration I ve seen of the book of Revelation I don t even think that the Left Behind series got the depth and darkness that will be in this time period to come And The Action Bible by Sergio Cariello didn t grasp Revelation either I m just actually wondering if it llappen during my lifetime This graphic novel adaptation of The Book of Revelation is terrifying beautiful provoking and poignant Due to the ambiguity of The Book of Revelation many ave tried to interpret it over the centuries Though I am far from an expert I find this graphic novel an insightful take on the world renowned work So much of this book from the Bible is based on imagery that when read alone most of us fail to truly envision its descriptions Thanks to artist Chris Koelle those words ave been chillingly rendered upon the pageThe Book of Revelation is a scary read and Koelle as intricately delivered those frightening aspects When I received the book from Vine it at first unsettled me But this is not the stuff of gratuitous violence or repulsion This is a realistic approach to a story that many believe.

Awesome Great work The best part of the Bible to recreate in graphic form for sure I enjoyed it a lot This translation and adaptation is essential for anybody interested in Apocalyptic literature This is a lavishly illustrated new translation of the Book of Revelation which covers every verse Many of Koelle s illustrations are breath taking I ave borrowed imagery for several of my sermons from this book as excerpts find their way online The moments of joy wonder and despair are captured extremely well The take on chapter 10 is worth the price of the book I especially liked is images of angels The translation is easy to follow except when using phrases like Pantokrator There are multiple reasons why the book of Revelation is challenging For one and perhaps this is the most common struggle it s meaning seems ambiguous without serious study and even the scholars can t seem to agree An additional problem I ve faced though is simply keeping track of the characters and plot Symbols events and characters seem to get jumbled from chapter to chapter Wait is the dragon the same thing as the beast it is this a different creature entirely And which characters are Jesus This graphic adaptation doesn t elp much with interpreting John s cryptic vision but it is extremely Hunted helpful for visualizing and tracking the narrative itself While I normally spend most of my time reading Revelation frantically tracking all the moving pieces and simply trying to comprehend the thing the cinematic graphic novel approach really allows for an engrossing experience A lot of people are scared of the book of Revelation or at leastesitant to read it Ironically it is the only book of the bible that says you are blessed for reading it Revelation 13 The team that put this together did an amazing job Absolutely stunning visuals with breathtaking colors is what this book is all about Along with captions of select verses it takes you through each chapter of Revelation not Revelations and. THE CLIMACTIC BATTLE BETWEEN GOOD AND EVIL The final book of the Bible as challenged inspired and astonished readers for nearly 2000 years The book of Revelation may be the most analyzed text in all of Scripture And yet it remains the most mysterious Now comes an illustrated graphic novel version of this amazing book including all 404.
