Revelation directly inspired some of the most famous hymns, including “You Servants of God” and “Battle Hymn of the Republic.” Now, you can engage more with this impactful book with the help of an expert guide through this 11-lecture audio series. Your teacher is Professor Bertrand Buby, S.M., a leading theologian and author of A Journey through Revelation.
