The Oxford Handbook of Apocalyptic Literature (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2014) is John J. Collins’ most recent edited volume dealing with apocalyptic. After Collins’ introductory essay–which more or less summarizes his argument in The Apocalyptic Imagination, with an additional section on modern apocalypticism–the book is divided into five parts:
- “The Literary and Phenomenological Context” of apocalyptic
- The Social Function of Apocalyptic Literature”
- “Literary Features of Apocalyptic Literature”
- “Apocalyptic Theology”
- “Apocalypse Now”
Paul Foster has a brief review article that focuses mostly on the first and third parts of the book. See Foster, “Unveiling Apocalyptic Literature,” Expository Times 126 (2014): 78-80.
