Library Journal Review

St. John's University professor Bulman has written a Christian's history of the idea of the millennium and a Christian's guide for how to survive its most recent and most dangerous manifestations. His plea for tolerance and moderation and his vision of the millennium as an opportunity for peace and dialog should be welcome ideas for any thoughtful Christian. For most collections.
