There are many who question the existence of a God, but in The Revelation and the History of Christendom, author Victor McGowan relays how the proof of God's existence is shown in the last book of the Bible-Revelation. Through historical data, he provides evidence of how the prophecies from Revelation have been fulfilled during the last 1,900 years of Christian history.
McGowan searched history and gained insight from other authors in order to understand the meaning of Revelation. In The Revelation and the History of Christendom, he examines the following symbols:
• The messages of the seven churches • The scroll with the seven seals • The seventh seal of the seven trumpets • The seventh trumpet of seven vials
The Revelation and the History of Christendom matches the sequential order of great events affecting Christianity with the sequential order of the prophecy. This explanation of Revelation challenges the skeptical mind with the historic events anticipated by the metaphors and symbols of the prophecy.
