About This Book

Lynn R. Huber argues that the visionary
aspect of Revelation, with its use of metaphorical thinking and language, is
the crux of the text's persuasive power. Emerging from a context that employs
imagery to promote imperial mythologies, Revelation draws upon a long tradition
of using feminine imagery as a tool of persuasion. It does so even while
shaping a community identity in contrast to the dominant culture and in
exclusive relationship with the Lamb. By drawing upon the work of medieval and modern visionaries, Huber answers a
call to examine the way 'real' readers engage with biblical texts. Revealing
how Revelation continues to persuade audiences through appeals to the visual
and provocative imagery she offers a new sense of how the text metaphorical
language simultaneously limits and invites new meaning, unfurling a range of
interpretations.
