WINDER — A 351-page commentary on the book of Revelation has been written by longtime Georgia Baptist pastor and state denominational specialist Shuford Jones.
The Revelation of St. John and the End of Planet Earth covers all 404 verses in the book of Revelation in “a clear, readable language,” said a statement through Fair Hope Publishers. Included, it said, was an update of the King James translation of Scripture to a more readable version called the “Easy King James Version.”
“From his incredible description of the exalted Christ in chapter one to his magnificent interpretation of the celestial city (heaven) in the last chapter of the book, you will find that Shuford Jones has a remarkable way of communicating God’s Word and bringing eternal truth to light,” said Gerald Harris, senior editor of The Christian Index. “We tend to focus upon the temporal, but this commentary will force the reader to shift his attention to the unending, ceaseless, timeless, interminable retribution that awaits the unredeemed and the glorious blessedness that awaits the blood bought saints of God.”
Jones served as a pastor 60 years. During his ministry he also taught Old Testament at the Atlanta branch of New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary, was director of church planting at the Georgia Baptist Convention (today the Georgia Baptist Mission Board), and preached in more than 250 churches. Previously he wrote a two-volume set called Psalms: Fresh Hope for Today, available at shufordjones.com.
