Getting ready for the millennium does not mean getting ready for the end of the world. Wright offers a clear explanation of how the turn of the millennium has been misunderstood; shows why the widespread "apocalyptic take" on the millennium is in error; exposes what drives millennium fever; and offers a meaningful way to celebrate the millennium with integrity.

Here is a riveting book for anyone interested in what is 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.
This book is a tract for the times. Dr. N.T. Wright argues that getting ready for the millennium does not mean getting ready for the end of the world as we know it. Instead, he points out that celebrating the new millennium means challenging our prevailing cultural story and symbols-in the very same way as the calendar we follow was designed to do in its day. Wright shows that the millennium hype is masking a deeper problem in our culture-issues concerning what he calls "postmodernity"-and then, by reviving some ancient words on hope, outlines a practical way forward for creating a better world.
