Review of More Than Conquerors

https://i0.wp.com/ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/516oyBe1PfL.jpg

William Hendriksen’s More Than Conquerors is a classic. It is also a helpful corrective for many who may be tempted to buy into those peddling books giving exact time tables for the return of Christ.

His interpretation of Revelation is idealist and amillennial, which might surprise readers as many assume that the premillennial view is the only one. Whether one agrees or disagrees with Hendriksen on the details of the millennium and other matters of interpretation no serious reader can deny that Hendriksen seriously wrestles with the text of Scripture.

While there have been many commentaries written in the 75 years since the original publication of this work, it has stood the test of time. Even if one disagree with Hednriksen it still is a helpful volume to have in reading through Revelation.
