#150: Mark Wilson – Victory Through the Lamb[Podcast]

In this episode Shaun Tabatt speaks with with Mark Wilson about his book ‘Victory through the Lamb: A Guide to Revelation in Plain Language’ (Weaver Book Company, 2014).

About the Book:
The book introduces Christians to the book of Revelation through a study of one of its key themes: victory. Running counter to Revelation’s prevailing interpretation, it proposes that Christians, represented by the audience in the Seven Churches, have been in tribulation since the first century and that Revelation was written to help Christians be victorious over the challenges of life. Each chapter opens with an account of martyrdom. The final account tells the story of the three believers in Malatya, Turkey, who were brutally killed in 2007. The book is dedicated to the three. The volume also features a new translation of Revelation by the author, a scholar who has worked on Revelation for over two decades and who lives in the land of the Seven Churches—Turkey.
