Commentaries on Revelation are Wilder than Revelation Itself

Benjamin West, 1796, Detroit Institute of Arts
G. K. Chesterton wrote: "Though St. John the Evangelist saw many strange monsters in his vision, he saw no creatures so wild as one of his own commentators." (Chesterton, Orthodoxy, quoted in G. K. Beale, Revelation: A Shorter Commentary, vii.)

(At Redeemer we've begun to preach through The Revelation (The Apocalypse). This Sunday's message is out of Rev. 1:4-8.)
