2000 Years and Beyond brings together some of the most eminent thinkers of our time-specialists in philosophy, theology, anthropology and cultural theory--to ask the strategic questions surrounding the millennium that others never thought to.

These seven controversial and visonary new essays from Paul Ricoeur, Ren Girard, J urgen Moltmann and Jean and John Comaroff, ask: How do we tell--and how do we rewrite--the story of the Common Era? Introduced by Paul Gifford, and discussed in a lively dialogic conclusion, they add their distinctive voices to a debate of profound and urgent topicality.
