Item Description...
Overview
This book makes available major texts in the Christian apocalyptic literature form the 4th to the 16th centuries. The apocalyptic tradition is that of traditional prophecy based on revelation and concerned with the end of the world. Even an age such as ours characterized by its scientific and rationalistic outlook has strong elements of literal apocalypticism found in fundamentalist and charismatic groups. The popular success of Hal Lindsey's The Late Great Planet Earth is evidence of this. Also the present hunger for apocalypse has adopted a variety of secular disguises typified by Heilbroner's An Inquiry into the Human Prospect. Contemporary theologians like Kasemann, Pannenberg, Rahner, Moltmann and others have devoted much of their work to the meaning of apocalyptic thought. This is a collection which can show the traditional roots of this contemporary phenomenon. Dr. Bernard McGinn says in his introduction, these treatises and letters have been chosen because of the way in which they manifest how beliefs about the imminent end affected the lives of their adherents..." Perhaps the task for us today is that by seeing how the lives of Lactantius, the monk Adso, Joachim of Fiore, The Spiritual Franciscans and Savonarola were affected by their apocalyptic vision we can recognize how our lives are being affected by the contemporary prophetic sense of the end of history.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
An unfamiliar perspective  Jan 19, 2009
The last twenty years have seen a resurgence of apocalyptic Christianity from the evangelical sector that has had a major effect on global politics and on the current economic crisis. This apocalyptic belief system was what enabled the Bush administration to garner sufficient popular support in the US to invade Iraq, with all the consequences that have flowed from that fateful adventure. So although this book may seem to be of fringe interest, dealing as it does with apocalyptic thinking from the 3rd century to the medieval era, the real impact of the book is in providing a perspective on modern evangelical apocalyptic.

The volume comprises principally of excerpts from the chosen writers themselves, with excellent introductions that enables the writings to be read in context. What emerges is a picture of a tradition that has been vibrant ever since the first century and, as noted above, is strong today. As with contemporary preachers of the apocalyptic, all the writers are absolutely certain of their predictions of what is to come. With historical hindsight, they were all just as absolutely wrong in their predictions. They were regarded highly in their day and excercised considerable influence.
