July of 2008, I was interviewed by 3ABN [Three Angels Broad-casting
Network] regarding my book: The Seals and the Trumpets: Biblical
and Historical Studies. As a result of that interview, I was
invited to be one of the speakers for a theological symposium on
the Trumpets at the headquarters of 3ABN in February of 2011. At
that time, Pastor Joe O’Brien (pastoral staff at 3ABN), asked
me about the possibility of summarizing my work into a small book.
To accomplish this I had to rely on most of the vast documentation
I had gathered and published in the former book. However, I decided
to undertake the task because I knew such a summary would allow
me to offer new arguments and touch on other important points of
the prophecy I had not yet fully developed. Therefore, this new
work, The Mystery of the Apocalyptic Trumpets Unraveled,
should not merely be seen as a summary of my former work, but rather
as a complementary document. In some ways, it can also be seen as
a more definite answer to some questions usually raised today concerning
"Dr. Alberto Treiyer, distinguished
biblical scholar fluent in three languages and college/university
professor, has done us all a favor by condensing in this volume
his larger book entitled APOCALYPSE: Seals and Trumpets. This larger
book is saturated with critical historical references that support
his understanding of Revelation’s seals and trumpets. Frankly,
I found this earlier book a remarkable presentation of how to interpret
these biblical issues—so fair to the biblical text and so
corroborated by the extensive historical record.
But now, this condensation is exactly what is needed when many have
not the time to devote to a thorough analysis of what the trumpets,
especially, mean today. What could be more important than reading
what John the Revelator said would be the most important issues
in our time?"
