Brad E. Kelle, Religious Studies Review This handbook will be a vital resource for all those working on Jewish and Christian apocalyptic writings... The essays exemplify the emerging understanding of the term 'apocalyptic' as a descriptor of a broad phenomenon (or set of related phenomena) that includes literary, religious, social, cultural, political, and environmental dimensions in both ancient and modern settings. A significant benefit of this broader inquiry is the attention given by several essays to the modern legacies and manifestations of apocalypticism.

Church of England Newspaper a valuable resource that explores all important aspects of apocalyptic thinking.
