Robert Joustra on Zombies, Cylons, Charles Taylor, and the Apocalypse

It is the end of the world as we know it! Actually, when hasn’t it been the end of the world as we know it?! That is the question that motivates a fascinating new book looking at the world going to hell. Prof. Robert Joustra discusses “How To Survive the Apocalypse: Zombies, Cylons, Faith, and Politics at the End of the World,” which he co-authored with Prof. Alissa Wilkinson. We cover everything from Battlestar Galactica to The Walking Dead, all through the lens of the philosophical work of Charles Taylor. We even talk Mad Men and Breaking Bad for good measure.

This is our annual trick and treat for you as you celebrate Reformation Day! Check out our previous spooky Halloween episodes in the archives.

Jim Papandrea on the End of the World and Revelation

With Mayan calendars predicting the end of the world in December 2012, what better time to talk eschatology than now, before it is too late? We check in with Prof. Jim Papandrea of Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary who sets Tony straight on the “end of the world” talk and discusses his own research on the book of Revelation in the New Testament. We examine the historical context in which Revelation was written as well as discuss the symbolism and the important role that “time” plays in this often misunderstood book of the Bible.
