At the annual meeting of the Society of Biblical Literature in November 2007, Richard Bauckham, Ronald Herms, and Frank Macchia served as panelists on a discussion of Robby Waddell's The Spirit of the Book of Revelation (Deo Publishing, 2006). Responding to the reviews of Bauckham, Herms, and Macchia, this article seeks to further the dialogue on the role of the Spirit in the book of Revelation. Special attention is given to the hermeneutical question concerning the relationship of the text and the interpretative community. In order to address a noted oversight in the book, the eschatological role of the Spirit is briefly explored. The response includes discussions on the structure of Revelation and the relationship of the two scrolls.
