Buist Fanning's commentary on Revelation is definitely one of the five best commentaries on this book available. Having taught Greek at the graduate level for many years, his insights from the Greek text are precise and profound. Since Revelation draws so heavily upon Old Testament allusions, the reader will receive excellent insight into these important intertextual connections. Although my own understanding of Rev 17-18 differs from his, I would concur with his interpretation of most of the book. In line with this, I would applaud his commitment to a premillennial perspective of the book. Finally, not only does he provide insightful commentary on every verse of the book, but he is obviously aware of current research on Revelation and references that judiciously. This commentary is highly recommended.
