"Here is a riveting book for anyone interested in what us really driving millennium fever. A classical historian, writing on one of the biggest stories of our time, provides the first work that: gives a clear explanation of how the turn of the millennium has been misunderstood and miscalculated; shows why the widespread 'apocalyptic take' on the millennium is in error; offers a provocative way to celebrate the millennium authentically and with integrity". -- back cover.
