Product Description

From a classical historian comes a reasoned analysis of the millennium. Wright argues that to celebrate the forthcoming millennium with integrity does not mean preparing for the world's end; instead, we must challenge our prevailing cultural story and symbols. He contends that millennium hype is a mask for "postmodernity," and constructs a practical response. 111 pages, softcover from Westminster/John Knox.

Publisher's Description

Wright argues that getting ready for the millennium does not mean getting ready for the end of the world as we know it, and shows that the millennium hype is masking a deeper problem in our culture. By following some ancient words on hope, Wright outlines a practical way for creating a better world as we move into the coming age.

    I was expecting to get NT Wright's view of "end times" events, but ended up with a critique of modernism & post-modernism. Overall, it was still a good book and I would recommend this book if you're looking for a way to answer secularists & skeptics.
