"...the study that has best demonstrated that Origen's whole thinking is eschatologically oriented.' Ilaria Ramelli, Catholic University of the Sacred Heart, Milan, Italy in RBL 04/2008. 'This is an exciting book which makes a formidable contribution to the study of Origen: all students of the great Alexandrian will find much of profit in its pages. T. succeeds admirably in presenting Origen's conception of history as thoroughly dramatic and teleological, while also demonstrating the manner in which Origen's conception of history and of eschatology is fundamentally Pualine. T. has here provided the best available analysis of the crucial relation between eschatology and Christology in Origen's thought. Both this volume and its predecessor are enthusiastically recommended as valuable and exciting reading.' S.W.J. Keough, Ephemerides Theologicae Lovanienses. Louvain Journal of Theology and Canon Law, 2008
