More Than Conquerors

The book of Revelation for some may seem to be a daunting book. The visions that John relates to us are terrifying, magnificent, condemning, and hopeful. First published in 1940, More Than Conquerors was written by William Hendriksen, and has now been re-released by Baker Books for its 75th Anniversary.

The first six chapters help to give the reader a broader understanding of the book of Revelation. It’s purpose Hendriksen claims is:

“To comfort the militant Church in its struggle against the forces of evil. It is full of help and comfort for persecuted and struggling Christians.”

Hendriksen places scriptures from different chapters in the book of Revelation alongside each other to show the unity that flows throughout the book.He then does the same with passages from the Old and New Testaments to further show its uniformity with all of scripture.

Each of the last eight chapters focuses on the scriptures from Revelation in greater depth. In these, he interprets some of the symbols and explains their relevance and meaning.

This book is fairly in depth, generally easy to read and follow, and good to help give one a better understanding of the book of revelation.
