Packed into all major monotheistic religions is a powerful theological punch: apocalypse. This provocative volume explores how apocalyptic visions have expressed themselves in different ways in Judaism, Zoroastrianism, Christianity, and Islam. The contributors also consider how Millennialism has expressed itself in a historical context, and why has it has so powerfully excited the human imagination.
