Editorial Reviews

Review

"One of the strengths of Carey's work is its breadth--the book explores both canonical and noncanonical apocalyptic literature, including writings that fit the technical genre of an apocalypse and those writings that are not apocalypses but contain apocalyptic ideas and motifs. The advantage of this inclusive approach is that it leads to a more balanced and accurate understanding of the nature and function of apocalyptic thought. Too often people's perception of apocalyptic discourse is shaped primarily by what they know about the biblical books of Daniel and Revelation. Students and experienced scholars alike will benefit from Carey's informed and judicious discussions of the origins, structures, and contents of these Jewish and Christian texts. Especially noteworthy is his sensitivity to the rhetorical and theological dimensions of these writings."

About the Author

Greg Carey is professor of New Testament at Lancaster Theological Seminary in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. He co edited Vision and Persuasion: Rhetorical Dimensions of Apocalyptic Discourse from Chalice Press and has written Elusive Apocalypse: Reading Authority in the Revelation to John from Mercer University Press.
