Publication life cycle / General notes

This first edition has 155 pages. Later reprinted in 188 pages in America and Great Britain (#1960-154).

"The expositions contained in this small volume were originally delivered as sermons during and after the war to the congregations of the Barony Church, Alyth, and Beechgrove Church, Aberdeen. They were not intended for publication, but appear now in the rough hortatory form in which they were delivered, at the request of many friends in both congregations and of numerous University students who have asked for a fresh and straightforward account of the meaning of the Apocalypse for today..." Preface, p. 5.
