The Book of Revelation Unlocked:
An Easy to Understand Walk through the Bible’s Final Message

Bargainomics Publications, 2021.
Many a Bible reader has surely arrived at the Book of Revelation with an earnest desire to understand this puzzling portion of Scripture, but fallen short of the goal.
“So many people make one attempt to read it and decide that the symbolism and chronology are impossible to grasp. But that’s just not so,” writes Judy Woodward Bates in her introduction to the recently released, “The Book of Revelation Unlocked.”
Bates takes the approach of breaking the book down into understandable elements and segments.
As she provides a roadmap to understanding, Bates covers a lot of territory. Yet her work is efficiently organized in bite-sized chapters that let readers find clarity in small morsels. Each of the book’s 22 chapters is divided into several days of study. Each day is brief and easy to read, so there’s no need to feel overwhelmed — unless you peek ahead and realize that the author has extended the study over 141 days!
However, whether you read one day at a time or get through several at once, you’ll have Bates along as a trusty guide through this difficult-to-understand conclusion to the Bible. The Alabama author, a graduate of New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary’s women’s ministry certificate program, is an experienced writer and handles the topic with skill.
