Product Description


"Incisive insights into contemporary culture and its apocalyptic bent"
"The world is going to hell." So begins this book in talking about the prevalence of "apocalypse" cataclysmic destruction and nightmarish end-of-the-world scenarios in our contemporary entertainment. Our culture on the whole has undergone a decidedly dystopian and apocalyptic shift.
In this book Robert Joustra and Alissa Wilkinson examine a number of popular stories from the Cylons in "Battlestar Galactica" to the purging of innocence in George R. R. Martin's Westeros to the hordes of zombies in "The Walking Dead" and argue that such apocalyptic stories reveal a lot about us, about how we conceive of our life together, including some of our deepest tensions and anxieties.
Besides analyzing today's popular culture, Joustra and Wilkinson also point to how Christians can live faithfully and with integrity in this challenging cultural context of ours."
