Expecting the End : Millennialism in Social and Historical Context, Paperback / softback Book

Expecting the End : Millennialism in Social and Historical Context Paperback / softback

Edited by Kenneth G. C. Newport, Crawford Gribben

Description

Jesus' promise that "the end" draws near has spawned an expectation of that grand event across various religious groups.

This volume examines the abiding social issues that surround the continued presence of apocalyptic anticipation by setting them in historical, present-day, and future manifestations.

Approaching this fervent expectation from a broad perspective, Gribben and Newport explore the contemporary movements with insightful analysis that provokes discussion and even self-reflection.
