Summary:This work represents an intersection between two important methods of interpretation. It presents a very complex theory of narrative relating to the experience of time and the production and reception of narrative is applied to the question of the eschatology of the Book of Revelation. The work argues that John of Patmos has a vision of two ages: one of a world fraught with conflict, violence and oppression and another similarly present for the Christian faithful, in which they experience the salvation expected at the end of the ages, now, gathered under God's protection.
