Reign With Him for Thousand Years (Rev 20:6) - A Socio-Hermeneutical Exposition of Biblical and Contemporary Millenarian Movements in Zimbabwe as Radical Responses to Deprivation

  • This volume is a monograph which was submitted at the University of Zimbabwe in Harare as a PhD thesis. It deals with the subject of millenarianism, a movement which the author sees as developing from biblical times. He draws lines of connection between contemporary Jehovah’s Witnesses and Johane Masowe movements with prophetic and apocalyptic movements in the Bible. This volume presents vast amounts of data on prophecy, apocalypticism and millenarianism for students and scholars of the Bible alike. Further, ordinary readers of the Bible will find this volume fascinating to read. There is also detailed information on the development of the two contemporary movements Jehovah’s Witnesses and Johane Masowe in Zimbabwe.
