If you re interested in apocalyptic literature then John J Collins book The Apocalyptic Imagination will be a book that you could be interested to read The problem is how many people can actually admit to being interested in apocalyptic literature enough to read an introductory scholarly work on the topic Therein lies the difficulty of such a book It was a fine book as far as I could tell about introducing a reader to apocalyptic literature Collins tackles the idea of what makes a work apocalyptic in the first place and then looks at books that are either considered apocalyptic or contain apocalyptic themes within itI found his treatment of the subject interesting and I could see how looking at other apocalypses could help Christians like myself realize that maybe the book of Revelation isn t all about one to one correlations to future events but rather a work that is doing something very different The problem is that I probably wouldn t point most people to this book because it is deep reading bouncing off of scholarly opinions about books most people have probably never heard ofIf you are a scholar or someone with very scholarly leanings this book will be very enjoyable to you However for most people this book would just be a confusing mess and a slog to get through with limited benefit It s useful for the niche but I can t say that I found it particularly enlightening or that I really received a lot of useful insight from its pages Dicen que soy aburrido the original work Especially note.

The Apocalyptic Imagination: An Introduction to Jewish Apocalyptic Literature (The Biblical Resource Series) Read & Download Ø 104 E phenomenon and function of apocalypticism in the ancient world study a wide range of individual apocalyptic texts and examine the apocalyptic character of early Christianity. This is a excellent review of Jewish Apocalyptic literature from 300 BCE to 200 CE It covers all the major Old Testament Pseudepigrapha the primary Dead Sea Scrolls Daniel and Revelation The introduction to the genre at the beginning is worth the price of the book although it is duplicative of the introduction in Collins commentary on Daniel in the Forms of Old Testament Literature series Collins perspective on the historical Jesus may raise some hackles on the right and the left but well worth reading even if you challenge his conclusionsThe ability to appreciate this book outside a seminary or graduate school presupposes a knowledge of Greek and Hebrew and familiarity with the Bible and the Pseudepigrapha I recommend having on hand a copy of Charlesworth s Old Testament Pseudepigrapha for reference as wells as a good Bible such as NRSV NIV or ESV
