When Don K. Preston’s first edition of Who Is This Babylon was introduced, it was called “ground breaking” and even “definitive” by scholars and laymen alike. Preston’s logical, analytical, and most of all textual approach to understand Revelation has helped thousands to better understand this enigmatic book. The book sold out quickly, and has been out of print now for a good while, as Preston continued his research, and also finished other pressing writing projects.
Preston’s continued research has now resulted in a revised, enlarged, (100+ pages added!), and vastly improved second edition of Who Is This Babylon! If you profited from the first edition, you will be blown away with some of the new material in this new book! Here is a small sampling of what Preston has added to the new version of Who Is This Babylon:
1.) A comparison between 1 Peter and Revelation. Everyone agrees that 1 Peter was written before A.D. 70. What is so important to realize is that Peter and John wrote to the same audiences. John predicted certain things to happen, but Peter, speaking of those identical things, said the things were present! This amounts to a very powerful argument in favor of the pre-A. D. 70 dating of the Apocalypse. Yet, very, very few commentators seem to take note of this comparison.
2.) The 144,000. Did you know that the the 144,000 out of the 12 tribes comprise a veritable irrefutable argument that the Revelation is about the fall of Jerusalem and was written before that event? This is one of the simplest, but powerful elements in the Revelation! You will love this!
3.) A comparative study between the book of Lamentations, and the Apocalypse! You may have never thought of this relationship before, seemingly, few have. Yet, I produce 21 parallels between Jeremiah’s historical lament over the fall of Jerusalem, and John’s prophetic vision of the fall of Babylon. You will not find this material anywhere else!
4.) Special material on the millennium. Without doubt, the millennium is one of the most perplexing aspects of Revelation. Many use that reference as proof for the late date, and other speculations. However, I have added a lot of material on the millennium that proves conclusively that John was standing near the end of the millennium, and anticipating the end of the millennial period! The millennium is not the Christian Age, nor did the millennium begin in A. D. 70. The millennium ended in A.D. 70!
These are just a very few of the new sections and material I have added to the new Who Is This Babylon. If you benefited from the first edition, you will love this new, expanded revision! Order your’s today by clicking here!! 300 pages, paperback $19.00
