About the Book

The Letters of Jesus plums the depths of Revelation 2-3, where Jesus, in a vision to John, dictates letters to seven churches in Asia.

He calls on the people of the congregations to repent of particular sins, generally common to all people. He commends them for the right things they are doing, and He promises special blessings in each case.

By highlighting the seven letters of the Revelation, Tom Kingery relays an urgent call to repentance. There is almost a now-or-never tone in the words of each letter.

Ultimately, the apocalypse offers more light than darkness—especially by the time you’ve read The Revelation to the end. The world has always been full of woe, but it is full of inspiration and hope as well.

Kingery brings the words of each letter down to earth and makes them relate well to our human condition. We can all gain something from what he has to say about the letters.
