The Apocalyptic Imagination (3rd Edition)

John J Collins

The Apocalyptic Imagination (3rd Edition)

John J Collins

$59.99

Paperback
:
One of the most widely praised studies of Jewish apocalyptic literature ever written, The Apocalyptic Imagination by John J. Collins has served for over thirty years as a helpful, relevant, comprehensive survey of the apocalyptic literary genre.

Collins begins by surveying the history of apocalyptic studies, then proceeds to deal with individual apocalyptic texts - the early Enochic literature, the book of Daniel, the Dead Sea Scrolls, and others - and concludes with an examination of apocalypticism in early Christianity. Collins has updated this third edition throughout to account for the profusion of studies germane to ancient Jewish apocalypticism since the second edition (1998), including the three-volume Encyclopedia of Apocalypticism and the now fully published Dead Sea Scrolls. The bibliography has also been substantially revised and updated.

The Apocalyptic Imagination in this third edition will continue to serve students and scholars of Jewish apocalypticism for many years to come.
