About the Author

Ted Grimsrud is Senior Professor of Peace Theology at Eastern Mennonite University.

"Ted Grimsrud is a worthy and capable guide through the often misread and confusing images laid out by John of Patmos to the churches in Roman Asia. Anyone who has ever wondered how to make sense of this powerful narrative will find a great companion in To Follow the Lamb. Go form a study group and dig in!"

--Wes Howard-Brook, Seattle University

"In this important book, Ted Grimsrud clears away decades of misunderstanding and misuse to reveal the beauty and power of the Apocalypse. Writing with deep insight and lucid prose, Grimsrud forcefully challenges violent interpretations of Revelation and fixes our gaze on the nonviolent Jesus. A treasure trove for peacemakers and justice seekers, To Follow the Lamb is accessible, relevant, and sorely needed. Guaranteed to deepen your appreciation of Revelation--I highly recommend it!"

--Eric A. Seibert, Messiah University

"In the midst of the sometimes-violent rhetoric of Revelation, Grimsrud makes abundantly clear that Revelation features the nonviolent victory by the slain and resurrected Lamb, who reveals a nonviolent God, over the powers of evil, represented by the Roman empire. One of the most valuable contributions of this comprehensive theological analysis of Revelation is how it applies the book's nonviolent resistance to empire to the American empire."

--J. Denny Weaver, Bluffton University, emeritus
