Brian E. Daley, S.J., is the Catherine F. Huisking Professor of Theology at the University of Notre Dame in Notre Dame, Indiana.Review:
"This is an excellent and thought-provoking synthesis of a wide range of early Christian eschatological statements, chiefly Greek and Latin, designed to support Professor Brian Daley's thesis that there was a basic unity in the Christian expectations about the end of the world or of individuals, in spite of striking idiosyncrasies that sometimes came to be regarded as heretical."
--The Journal of Religion (from published reviews of the hardcover edition)
"This is a well-researched, well-written study of the development of early Christian eschatology and the situations that influenced its development. It should be of interest and importance to anyone interested in New Testament studies, patristics, and the development of Christian doctrine. The work includes extensive notes and a detailed bibliography divided according to general topics and individual authors."
