kristyann, I have two copies of the book. You can have them.
I have two because the first two times it was studied I was a young child. The first time we went through it I drew pictures and doodled on every page of the book to keep myself occupied, so much so that I had to get a new book for the third time through as you can't even read the words underneath all the scribbling. Which made me sad because when you go through the same book repeatedly the only good part about that is you don't have to pre-study the second, third, etc. times since you already underlined in it the first time.
Someone else posted along this same line, and I felt the same way: that I didn't understand the book because I'm not smart enough, not deep enough. I remember reading concepts in that book and then thinking it was circular reasoning and didn't really seem like evidence of anything they were trying to say but an obscure interpretation (this was the third time through the book, I think I was about a freshman in high school...). But then I would correct myself like the good lil' Jdub I always wanted to be and think it must make sense because it came from the "Faithful Slave" and I'm just not very smart.
But it turns out I AM smart. And THAT means I will not be attending any studies of the Revelation book (or any other book for that matter).
