The goal of Lesson 7 is to equip you to enjoy and understand visionary writing in the Bible. To further the process, read chapter 11 (pages 165-176) in How to Read the Bible as Literature. The online lessons for this course are a guide to that book, which is the backbone of the course.
Optional Learning by Doing Exercise
A good text with which to apply what you have learned in this lesson is Revelation 6. You will need to set up a back-and-forth journey between this text and the generalizations about visionary writing in the foregoing lesson and the assigned reading in How to Read the Bible as Literature.
