How to Survive the Apocalypse
Zombies, Cylons, Faith, and Politics at the End of the World
  • By Alissa Wilkinson
  • By Robert Joustra
"Incisive insights into contemporary pop culture and its apocalyptic bent"
"The world is going to hell." So begins this book, pointing to the prevalence of apocalypse cataclysmic destruction and nightmarish end-of-the-world scenarios in contemporary entertainment. Our culture on the whole has undergone a decidedly dystopian and apocalyptic shift.
In "How to Survive the Apocalypse" Robert Joustra and Alissa Wilkinson examine 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 argue that such apocalyptic stories reveal a lot about us here and now, 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."
