Announcing the 2009 publication of the Encyclopedia of Messianic Candidates and Movements in Judaism, Samaritanism and Islam by Professor Eugene J. Mayhew.
Title: Encyclopedia of Messianic Candidates & Movements in Judaism, Samaritanism and Islam
Price: $59.95 plus tax and S/H
"The recent rise in interest in all things Muslim has prompted, among other questions, that pertaining to Islamic messianism. Does Islam, like Judaism and Christianity, embrace messianic expectation as an element of its theology, and if so, what are its contours? Professor Mayhew addresses this important matter with skill and sensitivity and in addition brings together for the first time a comprehensive survey of messianic thought in the other two great monotheistic traditions. His Encyclopedia, a diachronic treatment that covers the ages from primeval times to the present, reflects exhaustive research and documentation that give credibility to the work as a whole. It is a must for students interested in the multifaceted history of messianic thought."

"This is a truly prodigious work on the history of messianism. It will be a landmark volume for decades to come. There is simply nothing like it in print. It is a must for every student of the Old Testament and Judaism, to say nothing of the Christian concept of the Messiah."
Norman L. Geisler, Ph.D.
Former, Professor of Theology and Apologetics

"Encyclopedia of Messianic Candidates and Movements in Judaism, Samaritanism and Islam" is comprehensive in scope, erudite in research, magisterial in authority, judicious in criticism, fascinating in anecdotes, lucid in writing and evangelical in conviction. It will be my first port of call in researching issues pertaining to messianology."

"Dr. Mayhew has written a fascinating study on messianism that should be the benchmark for any further research in this area. This amazing compendium of messianic candidates should contain much useful information for both the scholar and lay person. This is surely going to be his "Magnum Opus" and it should be interesting to many people."
Paul D. Wegner, Ph.D.
Professor of Old Testament
Dr. Eugene Mayhew's Encyclopedia of Messianic Candidates and Movements in Judaism, Samaritanism and Islam is an unparalleled resource for presentation and discussion of Messiah figures that have arisen for the last several millennia...This is a masterful and comprehensive book that deserves wide attention and much praise. The number of those, particularly since the coming of the Messiah Jesus, causes us to remember His words not to go after false messiahs but to await the true Messiah--the Son of Man--in His coming. I commend Dr. Mayhew for this important study.
