Editorial Reviews


"This splendid collection of essays explores religiously inspired conceptions of the end of history ... Addressing critical aspects of Western apocalypticism, the authors identify and define their topics carefully, develop independent interpretations, and supply excellent supporting annotated bibliographies. This superb encyclopedia represents the best current scholarship ... it richly deserves wide distribution." (CHOICE)

"Excellent….an essential tool for the study of ancient apocalyptic." Religious Studies Review, April 2001

Format: Paperback
A collection of essays by scholars of Apocalypticism. Good cites, interesting reading. Would have given it 5 stars, but the book contains no index, which would have been very useful to me.
