The reason I give this four stars instead of five is because it does not have as thorough sections as I would necessarily like, and as this is mostly an anthology of texts written by experts for the given field, some subjects remain narrowly covered such that the broader understanding you were hoping for on the subject is limited further than you expect.
However, as one should understand with scholarly/professional anthologies, they are the best places to use to start your further investigation of a subject, not the final word on it.
As a collection of essays some are inevitably better written than others, but overall the quality of the essays is quite solid and numerous high profile authors contribute like Clark Pinnock, David Bentley Hart, Thomas Talbott, William Abraham, and William Lane Craig. I read the book cover to cover, and while I honestly didn't have much interest in a few of the topics I can at least say that each of the essays provide a good starting point for their topic with some suggestions for further reading which makes the handbook a great reference material for beginning serious study in Christian Eschatology.
