The Revelation of St. John, otherwise known as The Apocalypse, is for many the most fascinating book of the Bible. Its vivid images--of gigantic angels, ghostly horsemen, multi-headed beasts, the bottomless pit, the battle of Armageddon, and the Last Judgement--have directly inspired writers and artists such as Dante, Milton, Bunyan and Blake, and have informed the work of many others. Using the New Jerusalem Bible, Revelation takes the reader on a journey to the end of the world.
