Questioning the Millennium : A Rationalist's Guide to a Precisely Arbitrary Countdown, Paperback Book

Questioning the Millennium : A Rationalist's Guide to a Precisely Arbitrary Countdown Paperback

Description

Gould addresses three questions about the millennium with his typical erudition, warmth, and whimsy: What is the concept of a millennium and how has its meaning shifted over time?

How did the projection of Christ's 1,000-year reign become a secular measure? And when exactly does the millennium begin--January 1, 2000, or January 2, 2001?
