'Millennialism and Society is a publishing project that is as bold as it is admirable. It combines a meticulous scholarly approach with ethical and political awareness. In a world haunted and endangered by apocalyptic visions of every kind, this series will surely contribute to a better sense of what we face and who we are.'
