Overview

Jewish and Christian Apocalypses: Schweich Lectures, 1913 by F. Crawford Burkitt

This book contains the three Schweich Lectures from 1913. Burkitt believes the fundamental idea that underlines the great series of Jewish Apocalypses to be the idea of the "imminent judgment" to come. He attempts to exhibit this idea in connection with the historical setting and the ultimate cause of its manifestation. Burkitt holds that what gives rise to the Apocalypses' vitality is the great struggle between religion and civilization.
