Authors Father Andreas Hoeck and Laurie Watson Manhardt unlock the mysteries of some of the most difficult and controversial books of the Bible—Ezekiel, Hebrews, and Revelation. Probe the prophet Ezekiel, the most visual of the prophets, and discover the significance of his numerous visions and symbolic style of writing, and how he influences the book of Revelation. The Apocalypse (Revelation) is filled with symbolism and code language derived from the Old Testament that was intended to mislead outsiders who might stumble on the book. Learn its true meaning by comparing it with Old Testament precedents, and be fascinated by what God really is saying to you in Revelation. And discover why the book of Hebrews offers a profound and unique image of Jesus found nowhere else in the New Testament.
