About this product
- DescriptionThe world is going to hell. This is how Robert Joustra and Alissa Wilkinson begin this book, and they never stop being arresting even as they point to the prevalence of apocalypse - cataclysmic destruction and nightmarish end-of-the-world scenarios - in contemporary entertainment. Smart, sharp, and addictively well-written, How to Survive the Apocalypse examines a number of popular stories - from the Cylons in Battlestar Galactica to the purging of incence in Game of Thrones to the hordes of zombies in The Walking Dead - and argues that such apocalyptic stories reveal much about us and about how we conceive of our life together, including some of our deepest tensions and anxieties. Besides analyzing the dystopian shift in popular culture, Joustra and Wilkinson suggest how Christians can live faithfully in this cultural context.
- Author BiographyRobert Joustra is director of the Centre for Christian Scholarship and assistant professor of international studies at Redeemer University College, Ancaster, Ontario. Alissa Wilkinson is assistant professor of English and humanities at The King's College, New York City, and chief film critic at Christianity Today.
