Elaine Pagels on the Book of Revelation

Clip: 02/24/2012 | 7m 16s

Biblical scholar Elaine Pagels calls the Book of Revelation the "strangest" and "least understood" book in the Bible. "It's as though you take all of your nightmares about plague or destruction or war or torture or natural catastrophe, and you just wrap it into a huge single nightmare, and you get the Book of Revelation."
