The Apocalyptic Imagination

An Introduction to Jewish Apocalyptic Literature

Ranked #82 in Apocrypha

This second edition of John J. Collins's widely praised study of Jewish apocalyptic literature represents a complete updating and rewriting of the original work. Especially noteworthy is the chapter on the Dead Sea Scrolls, which now takes into account all of the recently published texts. Other chapters discuss apocalypse as a literary genre, explore the phenomenon and function of apocalypticism in the ancient world, study a wide range of individual apocalyptic texts, and examine the apocalyptic character of early Christianity. less
