In "Revelation: The Way It Happened," Lee Harmon leads his readers, verse by verse, through the events of Revelation, adroitly explaining the relevance of these scriptures while seamlessly weaving in a father-and-son discussion of the Apostle John's frightful letter. Meet Samuel and Matthew, two Jews living in Ephesus fifty years after the death of Christ, and share in their astonishment as the prophecies of John's vision play out around them in the Roman Empire. Bare your teeth at the original beast of Revelation, his double the antichrist, and John's nemesis, the false prophet. Relive the fire-and-brimstone tragedy of Mount Vesuvius, the expectation of massacre looming on the horizon and the Christian dream of escaping to live with God in Eden-like Jerusalem after it floats down from heaven. Harmon excels at capturing the essence of that time as he addresses our modern-day perceptions and misconceptions of this ancient tome. You'll never read the Bible in the same way again.

Author Lee Harmon tackles the most elusive and mysterious book of the Bible in his new release, ?Revelation: The Way It Happened?. Within its pages, Harmon explores what he believes to be a more probable interpretation of Revelation?s meaning. Fascinating, intelligent, and definitely plausible, ?Revelation: The Way It Happened? is a powerful read.
?Revelation: The Way It Happened? is the study of the book of Revelation and told from a first century Jewish-Christian perspective and takes into account the current events, traditions, practices, and language of that day. By utilizing this viewpoint, it becomes clearer as to what Revelation?s author John might have been writing about; instead of the traditional futuristic and puzzling apocalyptic scenario, Harmon presents the scriptures as the historical facts of the war for Jerusalem, the destruction of the temple, the eruption of Mount Vesuvius, and the tyrannical reign of Nero.
?Revelation: The Way It Happened? is an enlightening and enjoyable read! Harmon?s fictional story breathes life into his analysis of the scriptures and makes the study entertaining and easy to follow from the characters? frame of reference. In order to distinguish between inspired scripture, the author interpretations and explanations, and the fictional story, Harmon uses different fonts and spacing for each. This allowed for great ease in reading and thought transition. Further, Harmon ensured that he didn?t just provide random ideas; his translation of this biblical tome is grounded in not only scripture but published literature and the historical writings of the day. I found his analysis to be intellectual, thought-provoking, and intriguing. In addition, the book was extremely well-organized and edited; I found no discernible spelling, grammatical, or punctuation errors.
If you?ve ever poured over Revelation with frustration and left with even more unanswered questions, ?Revelation: The Way It Happened? will be a breath of fresh air. Author Lee Harmon doesn?t profess to be a prophet or have some sort of mystic connection with God; he?s just a ?regular? Christian with a drive to find applicable explanations. By paralleling world history with the writings contained in the book of Revelation, he presents a profound and possible scenario. A must-have for any serious bible student!
