Angels and Beasts looks into the interplay between the angelic figures in the vision of the seven seals. John creates a relationship between the four living creatures and the four riders in Revelation 6:1-8 that must not be overlooked. This connection works between the two groups as a whole and at the one-to-one level. The blending of symbols and the communication between these symbolic figures reveal exegetical, theological, and spiritual lessons. Both the scenario and the script of John's vision talk about terms and ties in the realm of angelic beings. For John these relations in the world above are a code to unlock relations in the world below.
"In Angels and Beasts, Laurentiu Mot brings his considerable linguistic and exegetical skills to focus as he explores the first part of the prophecy of the seven seals of Revelation. His analysis is well-written, easy to follow, and outlines an impressive array of inter-biblical context. He makes a valuable contribution to the topic."

"In this brief book, Mot has taken on some of the most challenging material in the Book of Revelation. No one, obviously, will agree with every decision he has made about the text, but he has done careful and thorough work. While I have studied these same passages for decades, I learned something on nearly every page, so I heartily recommend this book to all who wish to make sense of the seven seals of Revelation."
