Allegorists or nonliteral – view the book as a symbolic portrayal of the conflict between good and evil.

Preterits – view the book as a description of first-century events, showing the church’s triumph over Judaism and paganism.

Historicists – view the book as a preview of the Church Age; the prophecies have been and continue to be fulfilled in the history of the church.

Futurists – view the events of Revelation 4-22 as yet to occur; events will follow the Church Age.
