The Scarlet Woman and the Red Hand

Evangelical Apocalyptic Belief in the Northern Ireland Troubles

by Joshua T. Searle

ISBN: 9780718893729

This book provides a fascinating insight into the role, interpretation, dissemination and uptake of apocalyptic-eschatological texts. It is nuanced, complex, and sometimes difficult to read, but it is worth the effort as it fills a lacuna in our understanding of the role of religion in the formation of identity and the interconnection of religion and politics in the Irish context, and it adds greatly to the manner in which the recent conflict in the North is viewed and understood.

Miriam Moffitt, Irish Theological Quarterly, August 2015
