Far from being a utopia of material prosperity, the millenium of the Book of Revelation is God's response to the cry of those who suffer for their faith. St John's concern for the martyrs embraces all who are unjustly treated. It springs from his attack on the ideology underpinning the Roman Empire and the alternative world order he offers. Dr McKelvey shows that Revelation is essential reading for those who are concerned about the idolatories of the modern world and today's victims of oppressive systems and regimes. There is nothing here for those who seek to set the doomsday clock, but plenty to make us question the prevailing culture in the name of God's justice and truth and to reject the fatalism that assumes that nothing can change. The book demonstrates that far from being an isolated reference, the millenium is integral to the whole of Revelation.
-Publisher

The book begins with an introductory survey of the better known and more influential millennium thinkers and movements through history. It shows how the millennium was interpreted as a utopia and expressed in violent ways in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries and by the Branch Davidians in Waco and the Aum Shinrikyo sect in Japan. It also examines the teachings of the Jehovah's Witnesses and the New Age movement on the millennium. Part Two is devoted to the millennium in the Revelation of St John. It strips the millennium of utopian fantasies and the other accretions it has acquired through the centuries. It sets the millennium within the context of the whole of Revelation and its attack on the deceptive and oppressive ideology propagated by the Roman Empire and John's alternative interpretation of reality. It demonstrates that far from being an isolated reference, the millennium is integral to the whole of Revelation. It shows that the millennium is a metaphor for God's vindicatio
