Book Review: Wisdom for Everyday Life From the Book of Revelation

My latest adventure into reading has beenFr. Richard Veras' Wisdom for Everyday Life From the Book of Revelation. This book essentially explains the Book of Revelation in terms that can be easily understood. Fr. Veras does an excellent job of tying everyday life and real world experiences into his explanation of this daunting and seemingly cryptic book of the Bible. I found the book to be well written and engaging.

Fr. Veras walks the reader through the Book of Revelation chapter by chapter. He navigates the reader through the symbolism contained in this apocalyptic literature that can befuddle many who attempt to understand it. As one who generally dislikes reading apocalyptic literature, I found Fr. Veras' insight to be incredibly helpful. On many occasions, I stopped to think about how wonderfully he decoded the Book of Revelation. I'd say he clearly has a gift for explaining this book of the New Testament with amazing insight and clarity. Reading this book is like having an incredibly well informed tour guide at your side.

For more information on Wisdom for Everyday Life From the Book of Revelation, visit The Catholic Company. This book review was written for the Catholic Company Book Reviewer program. I was provided with a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.


  1. this seems interesting; might have to consider reading it. Revelation happens to be one of my favorite books in the Bible and although I profess to not understand the majority (if not all) of the book, two things stand out; the worship that goes on in it towards Jesus and how people who experience all the destruction still harden their hearts against God and don't repent (I find that incredibly sad). thanks for the review


  2. Interesting review. That is not a book that would normally draw my attention. I'll have to look into it.
