Since no one responded to this question and I think I know, I'll give it a shot.

The Revelation of Jesus Christ (not "Revelations" by John as some say) is definitely in the New Testament canon although it was slow getting there because the early Church was wary of it for a long time. Even still Revelation is not quoted in any of the liturgies or other services during the Church year. Perhaps the fathers feared there is too much room for heresies to be born of mis-reading the book. Goofy Hal Lindsey with his Late Great Planet Earth proved them right.
