Description : "Historian Suzanne Schneider examines the politics and ideology of the Islamic State (better known as ISIS). Schneider argues that today's jihad is not the residue from a less enlightened time, nor does it have much in common with its classical or medieval form, but it does bear a striking resemblance to the reactionary political formations and acts of spectacular violence that are upending life in Western democracies"--

Description : Just because the undead’s taste buds are atrophying doesn’t mean yours have to! You duck into the safest-looking abandoned house you can find and hold your breath as you listen for the approaching zombie horde you’ve been running from all day. You hear a gurgling sound. Is it the undead? No—it’s your stomach. When the zombie apocalypse tears down life and society as we know it, it will mean no more take out, no more brightly lit, immaculately organized aisles of food just waiting to be plucked effortlessly off the shelves. No more trips down to the local farmers’ market. No more microwaved meals in front of the TV or intimate dinner parties. No, when the undead rise, eating will be hard, and doing it successfully will become an art. The Art of Eating through the Zombie Apocalypse is a cookbook and culinary field guide for the busy zpoc survivor. With more than 80 recipes (from Overnight of the Living Dead French Toast and It’s Not Easy Growing Greens Salad to Down & Out Sauerkraut, Honey & Blackberry Mead, and Twinkie Trifle), scads of gastronomic survival tips, and dozens of diagrams and illustrations that help you scavenge, forage, and improvise your way to an artful post-apocalypse meal. The Art of Eating is the ideal handbook for efficient food sourcing and inventive meal preparation in the event of an undead uprising. Whether you decide to hole up in your own home or bug out into the wilderness, whether you prefer to scavenge the dregs of society or try your hand at apocalyptic agriculture, and regardless of your level of skill or preparation, The Art of Eating will help you navigate the wasteland and make the most of what you eat.

Description : From the Introduction: The work that follows is not intended to be a commentary on the Apocalypse. There have been many such commentaries, reaching back into the earliest times of the Christian era. Some, especially during the Middle Ages, have been quite spectacular in their ingeniousness. Our modern era has seen a series of fine commentaries, applying all the criteria of a historical-philological analysis to this difficult book. . . . What I have attempted to do here is to provide a continuous reading of the text, trying to show, especially through the links which can be made with the Old Testament tradition, the coherent and unified argument of the whole work. . . . The reader will find that, despite my admiration for and debt to the older commentaries, I have introduced something quite new to the interpretation of the Apocalypse.

Description : In this major, paradigm-shifting commentary on Revelation, internationally respected author Francis Moloney brings his keen narrative and exegetical work to bear on one of the most difficult, mysterious, and misinterpreted texts in the biblical canon. Challenging the assumed consensus among New Testament scholars, Moloney reads Revelation not as an exhortation to faithfulness in a period of persecution but as a celebration of the ongoing effects of Jesus's death and resurrection. Foreword by Eugenio Corsini.

Description : Depuis 2000 ans, le monde, toujours prompt à s'embraser, n'a jamais été aussi près de sa fin : le Signe tant attendu est arrivé sous la forme d'une dangereuse image réapparue. C'est le commissaire franc-maçon Antoine Marcas qui a retrouvé cette ébauche du tableau des Bergers d'Arcadie : un dessin maudit, dont le décryptage par un initié pourrait conduire à la fin des Temps. Manipulé par ses propres frères, poursuivi par des fondamentalistes prêts à tout pour provoquer l'Apocalypse, Marcas devra s'engager dans une lutte manichéenne et ancestrale. De Jérusalem, dans le Temple de Salomon où tout a commencé, jusqu'à Rennes-le-Château où tout doit s'arrêter...

Description : They appear in the first pages of the Bible, sons of God who coupled with mere mortals before and after the Flood. They are the fallen angels and their children--the Nephilim--who are also the true builders of the pyramids and other great monuments of ancient history. The Truth Behind Myth In The Nephilim and the Pyramid of the Apocalypse, author Patrick Heron examines ancient texts from Genesis to the Book of Enoch to Revelations to once and for all establish the true identity of this mysterious, lost race of giant beings. Are they angels? Genetic monsters? Are they characters of fable and myth? Are they still among us? Within these pages the answers are finally revealed. Solving The Riddle Of The Pyramids The identity of the Nephilim firmly in hand, Patrick Heron takes his research deeper, using science and an examination of age-old prophecies to discover the true meaning of the pyramids. His astonishing findings address the importance of the pyramid shape and its diabolical aim to supplant the City of God. And last but not least, once the riddle of the pyramids is solved, its significance in helping to navigate the coming Apocalypse is fully illuminated. Patrick Heron was born in Dublin, Ireland in 1952, and has a B.S. and M.A. in Business Studies from Trinity College, Dublin. At the age of 24, he began his Christian walk following an epiphany he experienced while reading the Bible. In 1997, having recently become interested in Bible prophecy concerning the "end times," Patrick published his best-selling book Apocalypse Soon. He currently resides in Dublin with his family and is not associated with any particular church or denomination.

Description : In this study of the cultural pursuit of the end and what follows, Berger contends that every apocalyptic depiction leaves something behind, some mixture of paradise and wasteland. Combining literary, psychoanalytic, and historical methods, Berger mines these depictions for their weight and influence on current culture. He applies wide-ranging evidence--from science fiction to Holocaust literature, from Thomas Pynchon to talk shows, from American politics to the fiction of Toni Morrison--to reveal how representations of apocalyptic endings are indelibly marked by catastrophic histories.

Description : Notions such as Armageddon, the Four Horsemen, the Whore of Babylon, the Millennium, the New Jerusalem, the Antichrist, the Seventh Seal, the Lamb of God and the Apocalypse itself have captured the popular imagination for two thousand years. Yet few people understand their basic meaning, let alone their original context in the Book of Revelation, the last book of the Bible.This book fills the gap in a striking and original way by means ofnine concise chapter-by-chapter explanations of the key terms together with copious visual examples, which show how these themes have been understood and treated by artists through the ages. A finalchapter demonstrates the continuing resonance of all the themes in contemporary religious, political and popular thinking.Throughout we recognise that the Book of Revelation is based on a vision, experienced by a visionary. Through our 120 illustrations we show how artists through the ages have presented the elements of the text as things seen and to be seen. In doing this, we also show how many of the artists we consider have themselves have contributed to theunderstanding of the text and to the development of its meaning.

Description : Praise for the first edition: "Aberth wears his very considerable and up-to-date scholarship lightly and his study of a series of complex and somber calamites is made remarkably vivid." -- Barrie Dobson, Honorary Professor of History, University of York The later Middle Ages was a period of unparalleled chaos and misery -in the form of war, famine, plague, and death. At times it must have seemed like the end of the world was truly at hand. And yet, as John Aberth reveals in this lively work, late medieval Europeans' cultural assumptions uniquely equipped them to face up postively to the huge problems that they faced. Relying on rich literary, historical and material sources, the book brings this period and its beliefs and attitudes vividly to life. Taking his themes from the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, John Aberth describes how the lives of ordinary people were transformed by a series of crises, including the Great Famine, the Black Death and the Hundred Years War. Yet he also shows how prayers, chronicles, poetry, and especially commemorative art reveal an optimistic people, whose belief in the apocalypse somehow gave them the ability to transcend the woes they faced on this earth. This second edition is brought fully up to date with recent scholarship, and the scope of the book is broadened to include many more examples from mainland Europe. The new edition features fully revised sections on famine, war, and plague, as well as a new epitaph. The book draws some bold new conclusions and raises important questions, which will be fascinating reading for all students and general readers with an interest in medieval history.

Description : WHY? We live in "a monstrous time for which we have no name yet" says philosopher Peter Sloterdijk. This book contains essays I wrote during the years 2018 and 2019 to wrap my mind around three questions: WHY is it that our gorgeous western culture is obviously racing towards the Apocalypse? WHY is it that this is a well known scientific fact, and yet nobody seems to care? HOW can a feeling and thinking person, driven by reason as well as moral and empathy, live during such monstrous times? Writing helped me to find answers. It helped me to develope a political consciousness. And it helped me to remain mentally stable during monstrous times. May this book help others too.

Description : Ever get the feeling that things are falling apart? You're not alone. From bad banks to global warming it can all look hopeless, but what if everything could turn out, well, even better than before? What if the only thing holding us back is a lack of imagination and a surplus of old orthodoxies? In fascinating and iconoclastic detail - on everything from the cash in your pocket to the food on your plate and the shape of our working lives - Cancel the Apocalypse describes how the relentless race for economic growth is not always one worth winning, how excessive materialism has come at a terrible cost to our environment, and hasn't even made us any happier in the process. Simms believes passionately in the human capacity for change, and shows how the good life remains in our grasp. While global warming and financial meltdown might feel like modern day horsemen of the apocalypse, Simms shows how such end of the world scenarios offer us the chance for a new beginning.

Description : Now a National Bestseller! Climate change is real but it’s not the end of the world. It is not even our most serious environmental problem. Michael Shellenberger has been fighting for a greener planet for decades. He helped save the world’s last unprotected redwoods. He co-created the predecessor to today’s Green New Deal. And he led a successful effort by climate scientists and activists to keep nuclear plants operating, preventing a spike of emissions. But in 2019, as some claimed “billions of people are going to die,” contributing to rising anxiety, including among adolescents, Shellenberger decided that, as a lifelong environmental activist, leading energy expert, and father of a teenage daughter, he needed to speak out to separate science from fiction. Despite decades of news media attention, many remain ignorant of basic facts. Carbon emissions peaked and have been declining in most developed nations for over a decade. Deaths from extreme weather, even in poor nations, declined 80 percent over the last four decades. And the risk of Earth warming to very high temperatures is increasingly unlikely thanks to slowing population growth and abundant natural gas. Curiously, the people who are the most alarmist about the problems also tend to oppose the obvious solutions. What’s really behind the rise of apocalyptic environmentalism? There are powerful financial interests. There are desires for status and power. But most of all there is a desire among supposedly secular people for transcendence. This spiritual impulse can be natural and healthy. But in preaching fear without love, and guilt without redemption, the new religion is failing to satisfy our deepest psychological and existential needs.

Description : La bombe d'Hiroshima, premier engin atomique lancé sur une population civile, n'a pas seulement marqué à jamais la psyché japonaise : elle a aussi reconfiguré la flèche du temps pour l'ensemble de notre monde. C'est à l'exploration de cette ombre historique, projetée sur le plus commercial des médiums artistiques, le manga, qu'invite Pierre Pigot : comment des mangakas comme Miyazaki, Matsumoto ou Nakazawa ont forgé une esthétique capable de donner une apparence aux lourds fantômes de l'histoire ; comment, du Voyage de Ryû à L'Ecole emportée, et de Princesse Mononoké à Albator, les mangas et dessins-animés ont exploré ces secrets de l'histoire humaine et ces hantises de la catastrophe, qui peuplent les coulisses de l'art depuis soixante ans ; comment, enfin, un manga aussi populaire aujourd'hui que One Piece dissimule au cœur de ses milliers de pages une idée secrète capable de nous donner les clés pour lutter contre cette prégnance de l'apocalypse. Apocalypse manga - ou le manga enfin sauvé de sa singularité orientale, et rendu aux mains de ses lecteurs.

Description : Politics & Apocalypse is the inaugural issue of the Studies in Violence, Mimesis, and Culture series. To most, the word apocalypse signifies destruction, death, the end of the world. The literal definition is "revelation" or "unveiling," the basis from which renowned theologian Reneacute; Girard builds his own view of Biblical apocalypse. In this volume, some of the major thinkers about the interpenetration of politics and religion-including Eric Voegelin, Leo Strauss, and Carl Schmitt-are scrutinized by some of today's most qualified scholars, all of whom are thoroughly versed in Girard's groundbreaking work.
