The Ephesus Scroll alternates between 1st Century Asia Minor as the letter of Revelation is taken to the seven churches, and modern day Russia where an ancient scroll has been found by two new believers.
The historical sections of this book give a great feel for the original context of Revelation. The author has a good understanding of the places and cultures involved and adds the little details which make the period come alive.
The modern setting gives interesting insight into everyday life in Russia, along with a good review of the debates about Revelation. It is academically rigorous in its discussions, but is never boring.
Overall this book is interesting as well as theologically sound. I highly recommend it as the best way to study the meaning and purpose of Revelation for the ordinary believer or theological student alike.

A very interesting blend of contemporary (Russia) and early Christian (Mediterranean)eras. History, theology, humour (spelling- I'm Australian!) and scholarship. I learned lots and recommend this to keen readers of the above categories.
