'This volume presents the fruits of an imaginative and valuable millennium project, an international conference on apocalyptic and eschatological themes in Oriental and Celtic traditions ... In sum, this book is both a record of progress and a charter for further research ... the volume serves as a valuable introduction to a field in which Irish evidence plays a significant role in the illumination of links between East and West. McNamara has added to his already outstanding contribution to Irish Biblical Studies by devising the millennial conference and publishing its proceedings. He deserves our best thanks, as do the other contributors', Máire Herbert, Proceedings of the Irish Biblical Association (2006).
