Modern day prophecy buffs will find this book interesting. Originally written in 1853 it gives an interesting perspective on the book of Revelation from that more Biblically literate era. The author explains his hermaneutic principles at the beginning and then begins his commentary. It is written from the continuous-historical perspective, that is, that the book of Revelation describes all of church history up until the final consummation. The author relates various historical events he believes have occured in fulfilment of prophecy as of his writing and then speaks of what was yet (at that time) to come.
