Like other narratives in the New Testament such as the Gospels and Acts, the Book of Revelation shares the narrative character within its unique and narrative world. When reading Revelation, many attempt to focus on deciphering the meaning of the mythical images, interpreting the historical background and pinpointing the implications of symbols and numbers. Using methodologies such as narrative criticism and reader-response criticism, The Narrative Asides in the Book of Revelation features the phenomena of narrative asides in the book of Revelation, which is the first attempt of its kind. Author Dal Lee identifies and classifies the narrative asides in Revelation, and discerns how the narrative asides function in the narrative of Revelation.
