How to Survive the Apocalypse : Zombies, Cylons, Faith, and Politics at the End of the World Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

The 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 innocence 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.
