Robyn has also written about Revelation in the Bible for Normal People series (Dec 2023).

Professor David de Silva of Ashland Theological Seminary wrote: “After everything you’ve heard about Revelation, you may not think that it’s not a book for normal people at all. Dr. Whitaker will help you give Revelation another chance. She shows us how Revelation was not a crystal ball for seeing distant future events, but rather a challenge to first-century Christians to open their eyes to the world around them. It challenged them to peel back the veneer of the political propaganda that legitimated violence and exploitation, and to take a bold stand for God and for the justice God desires for all people. And that’s an important challenge for us in our time as well.”
