Publisher's Description

This is a print on demand book and is therefore non- returnable.

The study of apocalyptic — the body of ancient literature dealing with the end of the world — is vital to an understanding of the New Testament. Most of us, however, know very little about the subject — and if Leon Morris is correct, much of what we think we know is wrong.

In this brief introduction to apocalyptic, Morris brings together the results of a great deal of work that has been done on the subject by himself and others. In a clear and lucid style, he addresses himself to the characteristics of apocalyptic writings, the world from which they arose, and their relation to the gospel. "Apocalyptic is not a good medium for expressing the cruciality of the cross," Morris concludes, "and in fact it does not express it . . . We cannot understand important sections of the New Testament without some knowledge of apocalyptic. But we cannot hold that apocalyptic contains the key to the whole. . . ."

Author Bio

Leon Morris (1914-2006) was one of Australia's most prolific Bible scholars. He wrote over forty other books, including commentaries on Matthew, John, and Thessalonians.

Editorial Reviews

Canon R. A. Ward
"Dr. Morris has established a tradition, and it is here maintained: evidence of wide reading, mastery of the sources, the exercise of an independent, critical judgment, courtesy and fairness towards all. Apocalyptic sets out the main points clearly, and will be a great help — especially to young seminarians."

S. A. Cartledge
—Columbia Theological Seminary
"This little book will take its place as a truly significant contribution to New Testament scholarship. Morris uses well the literature in the field. He writes in a simple, plain style. He deals fairly with points of view that he does not accept."
