Review: "The thirteenth volume in this landmark series examines the Apocalypse of John through post-colonial criticism, cultural studies, millennial studies, performance art, psychological analysis, gender theory, intertextuality, cultural anthropology, Roman history, history of religion, and rhetography." "In this volume, new voices engage their predecessors, older theories are refined and newer ones tested. No consensus on the text is reached by the contributors, and no consensus will be reached by the readers. For some, the Book of Revelation is a liberationist vision pointing to divine justice and offering personal consolation; for others, the violent images compromise any positive message." "Includes contributions by David L. Barr, Mary Ann Beavis, Greg Carey, Adela Yarbro Collins, Lynn R. Huber, Catherine Keller, John Marshall, Stephen Moore, Jorunn Økland, Hanna Stenstrom, Pamela Thimmes, and Caroline Vander Stichele."--BOOK JACKET
