Vorwort
This Bloomsbury Academic Collection consists of classic titles in religious studies.

Autorentext
The Very Reverend Professor Martyn Percy is member of the Faculty of Theology at Oxford University, Professor of Theological Education at King's College London and Professorial Research Fellow at Heythrop College, University of London, and Dean of Christchurch College, Oxford University, UK.

Zusammenfassung
This collection of essays examines responses to the Millennium and whether or not the year 2000 could be claimed as a specifically Christian time. It also considers how other religions reacted to the moment and what millennial celebrations reveal about religion in a secular age.
