Paul B. Duff
Reviews and Awards
"Duff has done NT scholars a considerable service by penetrating deeply into the Sitz im Leben of the Apocalypse, while moving forward the discussion of the setting that gave rise to this enigmatic text."-- The Catholic Biblical Quarterly
"This book is a substantial contribution to scholarship on Revelation. It is elegant in that it manages to do much in little space. Its methodology and arguments are powerful, since they bring together considerations of history, culture, conflict theory, literature, and rhetoric. The result is compelling and a pleasure to read."--The Journal of Religion
