Wilfrid Harrington has written a clear and enlightening commentary on one of the most difficult books of the Bible. Those who are looking for a commentary that helps with contemporary application of the message of Revelation should definitely consider this one. Some commentaries are so eager to impress that they are unintelligible. This one is scholarly, but, anyone with a serious interest in learning the Bible will find it useful. I highly recommmend it.

This is oneof the Sacred Pagina series which covers the New Testament and Gospels. I do like the commentary, layout, format, clarity and presicion of the book. Cant wait to read the rest of the series!

Great commentary and a must read for serious bible study. Clears away all the frivolous claims of all the fashion preacher who claim they have the right interpretation.

Wilfrid Harrington, O.P. has written a scholarly analysis of the Book of Revelation, but his theology is heretical, and decidedly not Catholic.

For instance, Fr. Harrington denies the existence of Satan, stating, "Satan is a powerful symbol, representing the whole gamut of evil and its infectious presence in the human race".

What is more troubling, he seems to glowingly accept the teachings of his fellow Dominican, dissident theologian Edward Schillebeeckx. In an Excursus at the end of this book, Fr. Harrington states there will be Universal Salvation ("Universal salvation means that all human beings will finally be redeemed by God's gracious love"), and "There is no negative eschaton" (meaning there is no eternal hell). He agrees with Schillebeeckx's statement, "But there is no shadow kingdom of hell next to the eternally happy kingdom of God." Were there any confusion about his stance, Fr. Harrington states, "Humans, not God, have invented hell."

What these two theologians are telling us is that there will be no eternal hell, in direct opposition to the Gospels, and in direct opposition to the teachings of the Catholic Church.

While it would be pleasant to think that no matter what we do in this life, there will be no possibility of eternal damnation, this is not what Jesus Christ himself tells us in the Gospels.

I heartily agree that the Book of Revelation is indeed a message of God's love and mercy for us; it is also a Book about God's justice. We mock the Gospels if we deny the existence of Satan, and we deny God's just nature if we deny the existence of an eternal hell.

So, while his scholarship is decent, his dissident theology casts a pall (in the truest sense of the word) over this book.

To any Catholic, I would say "Let the reader beware".

Sacra Pagina is a line by line Scholarly Catholic commentary of New Testament in 18 books. Revelation is the first book in the series that I have read. It made me wish I could persuade myself to buy the entire set of commentaries at a cost on Amazon of $748. The commentary not only explains the hundreds, even thousands of references to both the Old Testament as well as the times in which the book was written, it offers up possible explanation for problems such as eternal damnation and an all-merciful God. A real treat for anyone who has an interest in understanding this most puzzling of all New Testament works and well-worth the purchase price.
I have previously read other commentaries of other Biblical books. Comparing this one to the others I have to say that Wilfrid Harrington achieved a lot with minimal space. Mr Harrington is thorough but goes straight to the point. As to the subject matter, Revelation, his exegesis is upbeat bringing up a method of coping (patient endurance) and a message of Faith and Hope (God will deliver us from evil). Concerning the concept of universal salvation, Mr Harrington advances some theories which, in my opinion, are not satisfying. He specifically dismisses reincarnation as a way to universal salvation due to, in my opinion, his very own prejudices. Overall, this is a very good book.
