Apocalyptic Thought in Early Christianity
Daly, Robert, editor
Grand Rapids, Mich.: Baker Academic, 2009 pp. 303. $32.99
Description: This volume explores how early Christian understandings of apocalyptic writings and teachings are reflected in the theology, social practices, and institutions of the early church. Experts on patristic and Byzantine Christianity present substantial samplings of biblical interpretation, theology, and visual art from first-millennium Christianity, especially from the East, to demonstrate the depth and variety of meaning early believers found in Daniel, Revelation, and related writings.
