In the book titled "Days of Vengeance" David Chilton does a thorough job of introducing some thought provoking ideas revolving around the latter days of Christianity on earth. Things we have always assumed were right on now become suspect.

The Days of Vengeance book. David Chilton's extraordinary verse-by-verse exposition of Revelation is as welcome as a cool drenching rain David Chilton has done it. He has written a book on Revelation that is sure to spark an eschatological revolution. David Chilton's extraordinary verse-by-verse exposition of Revelation is as welcome as a cool drenching rain upon a dry, thirsty ground.

The Days of Vengeance: An Exposition of the Book of Revelation.

Now comes The Days of Vengeance, a verse-by-verse exposition of the toughest book in the Bible, the Book of Revelation.

He shows that Revelation is a book, like every other book of the New Testament, addressed primarily to the rst-century church and easily understood by them, because they were thoroughly familiar with Old Testament imagery. He shows that once we grasp these idioms, Revelation is not difcult for us to understand either. Now comes The Days of Vengeance, a verse-by-verse exposition of the toughest book in the Bible, the Book of Revelation. What was generalized in Paradise Restored is now supported with chapter and verse – indeed, lots and lots of chapters and verses.

An Exposition of The Book of Revelation. Christian by David Chilton. 2. Revelation is a prophecy about imminent events – events that were about to break loose on the world of the first century. eBook file(s) submitted by David Chilton. This is quite possibly the most comprehensive verse by verse treatment of the Book of Revelation ever written. Revelation is not about nuclear warfare, space travel, or the end of the world. Again and again it specifically warns that the time is near! Revelation cannot be understood unless this fundamental fact is taken seriously. 3. Revelation has a system of symbolism.

The book itself sets a standard for in-depth analysis. Chilton convincingly shows that the symbols and Old Testament allusions are placed with great care by St. John and shows how all of the symbols place themselves within the flow of salvation history.

David Harold Chilton (1951–1997) was an American reformed pastor, Christian reconstructionist, speaker, and author of several books on economics, eschatology and Christian Worldview from Placerville, California. He contributed three books on eschatology: Paradise Restored (1985), The Days of Vengeance (1987), and The Great Tribulation (1987).

In my opinion, this is one of the best and most informative books I've found on the Book of Revelation. It came highly recommended by Dr. Scott Hahn in his university based course on the subject The End: The Book of Revelations. Dr. Hahn follows a lot of the historical aspects put forth in this book which interprets the timing of the writing of the Book of Revelation and the meaning of this Sacred Scripture as centered around 70AD and the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem. He also follows Chilton's proposal that the structure of the book is something that resembles the structure of Catholic Mass, the new worship and sacrifice that replaced the temple sacrifices, which Dr. Hahn later put to pen more concisely in his well-known The Lamb's Supper: The Mass as Heaven on Earth. David Chilton draws heavily on the rich historical sources that we have from that time, namely Josephus and other Roman figures. I view this as one of the classics written on this book.

For those of you who are not part of the defeatist movement that is firmly convinced that we are "The Terminal Generation"... this is the Revelation Commentary you want. It actually explains what every verse of this mysterious book means, in light of how it relates to Old Testament Covenantal analogy. Revelation is not a book of mysterious visions about attack helicopters and apocalyptic wars that end Mankind. It's about God's Covenant with Man. This is a must-read book for anyone who has felt the frustration that the great theologian Martin Luther did when he said that Revelation was indecipherable and should be thrown into the river. It's much more understandable if you let go of false pre-convieved notion concerning what you THINK it is about... and read it in relation to the rest of the Bible. All the mysterious visions have, as the late David Chilton points out, a beautiful analogous reference in the Old Testament.

This book needs to be in every Christian library. In order to understand the Book of Revelation David Chilton demonstrates how you need to let the Bible interpret itself. Three times it is stated that the events of Revelation are going to happen soon. The signs and symbols all come from Old Testament books. One needs to be thoroughly saturated with the books of the Old Testament to grasp the Book of Revelation. David Chilton lays it all out.

I was asked? to read this book in my eschatology course in seminary. Everyone in our class was shocked by this book. It is simply the best explanation and commentary of Revelation you will ever read. WARNING: it may change your eschatology forever to the preterist viewpoint. I was particularly fascinated with the explanation of the mystery of the 144,000, the 12 tribes of Israel, the purpose of the ORDER of these tribes, why DAN may have been omitted, etc. But double warning: this isn't a book you can scan through in 2 hours. Any layperson advanced in biblical studies will appreciate this book. Or seminary students. Others might want to try Paradise Restored first, another book by David Chilton that precedes the writing of this book. Take the challenge all of you who are firmly entrenched in dispensational premillienism (the rapture, etc.)--this book will show you how unbiblical and weak this "new theology" really is.

I have a copy of this book on my Kindle and I appreciate the scholarship and level of learning. This is a great alternative to the garbage dispensational malarkey that is being sold in stores today. Super exposition and well done. I'm gonna keep this one.

Wonderful book! However, get Chilton's other book, "Paradise Restored", as a compliment to this book. It's a good primer, which explains some of his theology in a shorter form. Both books are outstanding. They're biblical and in context with all of scripture. It will definitely steer you away from the wild "theories" of Dispensationalism. If you like hearing what scripture has to say concerning doctrines as opposed to theory, in other words, letting God tell you the truth, I highly recommend both books. I started out as a dispensationalist, but after listening to their predictions and no one in the dispensationalist camp wondering out loud why these "ministers" aren't being held to account and being honest about it, instead of stony silence, I began to look at scripture in a fresh way to see where the USSR, the European union, etc., was to be found and lo and behold, they aren't. Read these books for an honest approach to the Bible, not fortune telling disquised as prophecy.

This is a great book
In his 'over the top' publisher's preface in 1986, Gary North wrote, "From this time on, there will be only three kinds of commentaries on the Book of Revelation: Those that try to extend Chilton's; Those that try to refute Chilton's; Those that pretend there isn't Chilton's."
"The Day's of Vengeance" has radically altered the viewpoint of many towards a preterist/postmillennial eschatology, and is still an excellent commentary. However, James B. Jordan's audio series on the Revelation is the one I believe that has 'extended' Chilton's work. Indeed, Jordan's work influenced Chilton, but continued study led to these lectures in 1999. There are 204 lectures, which take 144 hours (or 6 days) to listen to. Even though there is some helpful repetition, I listened to some of the lectures more than once to let the pattern of thought sink in. The time investment is well worth it, as he goes much deeper than Chilton into the Old Testament allusions and the structure of the Old Creation, sweeping over the entire Bible and demonstrating how it culminates in the Revelation better than anyone I have read or heard. His approach relies much less on Josephus and substantially more on the Old Testament than Chilton did. Chilton's work is still a groudbreaking introduction to this subject, but Jordan's lectures will open your eyes all over again.
