Reviews - What do customers think about Visions of the End?

Change and Continuity  Aug 9, 2009
This is a fascinating book. While it is not perhaps the type of book to settle down with for an evening's read, neither is it solely a reference book. The longer general introduction by the author is informative, accurate, and full of insights about the subject, while the shorter introductions to the chronologically arranged selections of original material are invaluable for placing them in context and pointing out particular points of interest. An overall reading shows inescapeably both the continuity of apocalyptic thought in the middle ages and the ways in which it changed through the centuries. Notes and bibliography are exemplary. Taken altogether, this book makes a fine addition to texts for college courses dealing with medieval thought.
Good Resource of Rare Prophecies  Jun 5, 2009
This book contains only excerpts of the prophecies, so it is not as good as it could have been as a reference, but excerpts are better than nothing. It also contains tons of end notes, which means the reader is constantly flipping back and forth, very irritating. I hate end notes, footnotes are better.
Great book  Jun 20, 2008
A very well written book for those interested in this matter, it countain the main medieval prophecies and explanations about their origins and history. A must for any scholar interested in the subject, in my viewpoint. This was one of the best books I used to write mine - Selected Prophecies and Prophets - by the way. It has accurate information, which is not so common in this subject.
