No scholar has shaped our understanding of apocalyptic literature more than JohnJ. Collins. This superb new collection covers a wide range of texts and topics, all handled in magisterial fashion. Lucidly argued and meticulously researched, each essay offers a plethora of valuable insights and stimulating interpretations. Highly recommended for biblical scholars, and an absolute must for every specialist of early Judaism.

Brilliant. ... Collins s leading scholarship is always adorned with clarity and creativity. The essays gathered here, including several previously unpublished, provide his assessment of the field since the 1970s, dealing lucidly with the major issues, including pseudepigraphy, ethics, and politics. This will become a milestone collection on apocalyptic studies.

Collins has made Second Temple Judaism accessible like few other scholars, offering an authoritative voice that often determines the course of ideas and scholarship in the field. These essays not only provide a marvelous summary of the field at large but also establish a trajectory for future study. An indispensable volume for the student of early apocalyptic literature.
