Value of scholarship

"There are four major views of the book of Revelation. I am trying to see where I may land (at least for the time being). This is a quest that began in seminary after taking an eschatology class. I had more questions than answers (which is typical when one studies "end times") after the class than before. It's funny. There appears to be two classes of study of the book of Revelation.

1) It's too hard and so why worry about it. "I am a pan-millennialist--it'allpan out in the end." In other words cop-out excuse.

2) Those who become enraptured with it and that's all they study,
neglecting the other 65 books, while reading every current event as THE sign for the 2nd Coming.

Frankly, both of these extremes are dangerous. I would like to be right in the middle--that is taking the study in relationship to the entire canon. Thus, hopefully focusing on the details of the book with the intention of examing how, in general, the book fits into the whole of canon. Not to mention I have some questions related to Matt 24 and 28 in reference to world missions and the end of 2nd coming."

This is a work in progress that's well under way and starts here.
