4.0 out of 5 stars A Well Done Anthology 10 Feb. 2016
By Benjamin M Killgore - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a very good book for those looking for a scholarly approach to the study of "the end of the world," whether you do it for professional reasons, or you do it to expand out from reading only the views on the subject given by your own religious tradition.
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Provides an excellent bibliography for research 28 Sept. 2014

5.0 out of 5 stars Great reference material for serious study in Christian Eschatology 18 July 2016
By Zach Porter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This collection of essays primarily on Christian eschatology is a great reference work for philosophy or theology students who are studying eschatology and perhaps some lay persons who are exceptionally studious. The essays cover a broad spectrum of ideas including the development of eschatology in the OT and NT, eschatology in non-Christian religious traditions, eschatological beliefs in various Christian denominations, and various theological, philosophical, and cultural issues that arise from typical eschatological beliefs.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Needs to Have More... 19 Nov. 2013
By PeterY - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Some very good articles, but it feels as though there could have been more - maybe one does expect a handbook to be a bit more comprehensive.
