Islamic tradition in general speaks about the appearance of the Mahdi, or divinely guided messianic leader, from among the descendants of the prophet. In Shi'ism, belief in the Mahdi is the foundation on which the entire spiritual and temporal edifice rests. Sachedina's purpose is to examine this key belief in the Mahdi and the doctrinal evolution of the idea of the Mahdi in early Imamite sources.

Sachedina compares the Judeo-Christian conception of Messiah and the Shi'ite conception of Mahdi and discusses the developing relationship between the Shi'ite Muslims and political regimes. His primary sources on the development of doctrinal ideas about the Mahdi are the works of early Imamite scholars who developed their ideas when they were in a minority position in the Islamic world. As the first comprehensive study of the idea of the Mahdi, Islamic Messianism provides a valuable guide to students in religious studies and Islamics as well as to students of Iranian history and politics.
