"It's not the end of your world, but what if it was?" In a hurried world where your children are overwhelmed by Tik-Tok, Fortnite and Roblox and their attention spans are shorter than your patience, it's never been more important for fathers to connect with their sons and daughters. It's never been more important for parents to create their own Once Upon A Time. Part love letter to his children, part alternative parenting guide, part stoic meditation, part psychotic breakdown, Apocalypse Daddy is the story of a father and his daughter and how one Spring can last a lifetime. It follows a father who, after being forced to stay at home with his children during the Covid-19 pandemic, embarks on a journey to build stronger bonds using unconventional methods. Joining Apocalypse Daddy is a cast of cultural icons, scientists, musicians, dead kings and Schrödinger's cat. Can Buddha, Seneca, Epictetus, Bob Dylan, Diogenes, Richard Nixon, Peter Rabbit, Alfred Hitchcock, Jimi Hendrix and Hunter S Thompson help Apocalypse Daddy overcome the odds and bring education home? Is there enough time for Alice and Luca to teach Apocalypse Daddy about the meaning of life and what being a parent is really about? This unique and thought-provoking take on fatherhood will remind you of the importance of spending quality time with your kids. Undistracted. In the moment. Nearly always. It's a must-read for all parents who want to strengthen their relationships with their children but have fun doing it.
The apocalypse began with an internal cancer-like growth. A new organ formed, and Towers sprouted from the Earth. All worldly knowledge upended. No explanation or rules given. So, humanity made its own... Jeff Smith was born over a century after "The Rise," the historical name for the day that seven indestructible mechanical towers rose like spiraling drills. Earlier that month, everyone on the planet was given the potential to be something more, to live forever-to be a superhuman. Like everyone else, Jeff wants to cultivate his God Liquid and join the immortal rankers as they conquer the Northern Tower and capture riches beyond imagining. What better life could there be? Unfortunately, for twenty-one years, Jeff hasn't been allowed to cultivate thanks to his tyrant of a mother-thanks to Leah. Then, on the day he is going to escape, a powerful guild on a manhunt attacks Leah's group of scavengers, and Jeff is thrown through a very unique dungeon portal- a portal that hasn't been used in nearly a hundred years. When spells and skills unleash chaos, a special blue screen powers up, and Jeff's journey begins.
"Harrowing, tender-hearted, and funny as hell" —Jenny Offill “Fascinating…Oddly uplifting” —The Economist "Smart, funny, irreverent, and philosophically rich" —Wall Street Journal By the author of the award-winning To Be a Machine, an absorbing, deeply felt book about our anxious present tense—and coming to grips with the future We're alive in a time of worst-case scenarios: The weather has gone uncanny. Old postwar alliances are crumbling. A pandemic draws our global community to a halt. Everywhere you look there's an omen, a joke whose punchline is the end of the world. How is a person supposed to live in the shadow of such a grim future? What does it mean to have children—nothing if not an act of hope—in such unsettled times? What might it be like to live through the worst? And what on Earth is anybody doing about it? Dublin-based writer Mark O'Connell is consumed by these questions—and, as the father of two young children himself, he finds them increasingly urgent. In Notes from an Apocalypse, he crosses the globe in pursuit of answers. He tours survival bunkers in South Dakota. He ventures to New Zealand, a favored retreat of billionaires banking on civilization's collapse. He engages with would-be Mars colonists, preppers, right-wing conspiracists. And he bears witness to those places, like Chernobyl, that the future has already visited—real-life portraits of the end of the world as we know it. In doing so, he comes to a resolution, while offering readers a unique window into our contemporary imagination. Both investigative and deeply personal, Notes from an Apocalypse is an affecting, humorous, and surprisingly hopeful meditation on our present moment. With insight, humanity, and wit, O'Connell leaves you to wonder: What if the end of the world isn't the end of the world?
The Apocalypse Is Everywhere: A Popular History of America's Favorite Nightmare by Anne Rehill Pdf
The Apocalypse Is Everywhere: A Popular History of America's Favorite Nightmare explores why apocalyptic thinking exists, how it has been manifested in Western culture through the ages, and how it has woven itself so thoroughly into our popular culture today. Beginning with contemporary apocalyptic expressions, the book demonstrates how surprisingly widespread they are. It then discusses how we inherited them and where they arose. Author Annie Rehill surveys the ancient belief systems from which Christianity evolved, including ancient Judaism and other faiths. She explores the vision outlined in the Book of Revelation and traces the apocalyptic thread through the Middle Ages, across the Reformation and Enlightenment, and to the Americas. Finally, to prove that the Apocalypse is indeed everywhere, Rehill returns to the present to consider the idea of apocalypse as it occurs in movies, books, comics and graphic novels, games, music, and art, as well asin televangelism and even presidential speeches. Her fascinating scholarship will surely have readers looking about them with new eyes.

Media and the Apocalypse by Kylo-Patrick R. Hart,Annette Holba Pdf
Responding to a plethora of media representing end times, this anthology of essays examines pop culture's fascination with end of the world or apocalyptic narratives.

This book will be useful in upper-level undergraduate/graduate courses addressing mass media, film and television studies, popular culture, rhetorical criticism, and special/advanced topics. In addition, the book will be of interest to scholars and students in disciplines including anthropology, history, psychology, sociology, and religious studies.
The Oxford Handbook of the Bible in America by Paul Gutjahr Pdf
Early Americans have long been considered "A People of the Book" Because the nickname was coined primarily to invoke close associations between Americans and the Bible, it is easy to overlook the central fact that it was a book-not a geographic location, a monarch, or even a shared language-that has served as a cornerstone in countless investigations into the formation and fragmentation of early American culture. Few books can lay claim to such powers of civilization-altering influence. Among those which can are sacred books, and for Americans principal among such books stands the Bible. This Handbook is designed to address a noticeable void in resources focused on analyzing the Bible in America in various historical moments and in relationship to specific institutions and cultural expressions. It takes seriously the fact that the Bible is both a physical object that has exercised considerable totemic power, as well as a text with a powerful intellectual design that has inspired everything from national religious and educational practices to a wide spectrum of artistic endeavors to our nation's politics and foreign policy. This Handbook brings together a number of established scholars, as well as younger scholars on the rise, to provide a scholarly overview--rich with bibliographic resources--to those interested in the Bible's role in American cultural formation.

Message and Composition of the Book of Isaiah by Antti Laato Pdf
The study deals with the theological message and composition of the Book of Isaiah and promotes a thesis that an early Jewish reception history helps us to find perspectives to understand them. This study treats the following themes among others: 1 Hezekiah as Immanuel was an important theme in the reception as can be seen in Chronicles and Ben Sira as well as in rabbinical writings. The central event which makes Hezekiah such an important figure, was the annihilation of the Assyrian army as recounted in Isaiah 36-37. 2 The Book of Isaiah was interpreted in apocalyptic milieu as the Animal Apocalypse and Daniel show. Even though the Qumran writings do not provide any coherent way to interpret Isaianic passages its textual evidence shows how the community has found from the Book of Isaiah different concepts to characterize the division of the Jewish community to the righteous and sinful ones (cf. Isa 65-66). 3 Ezra and Nehemiah received inspiration from the theological themes of Isaianic texts of Levitical singers which were later edited in the Book of Isaiah by scribes. The formation of the Book of Isaiah then went in its own way and its theology became different from that in the Book of Ezra–Nehemiah.
Two worlds bound by magic... Three people joined by destiny... Lord Kagan Donmall rules the Verge, the border that protects the magical Fae Inlands from the mundane mortal world. Recently, the Verge has been failing and he suspects the source of magic is fading. His prayers to Danu have gone unanswered, until now. The young mortal, Lauren Montgomery, hears the message of Danu and eagerly agrees to be the Lady of the Verge, for she desires more than a mundane life. But Lauren’s twin sister, Tessa-ever her sister’s protector, challenges the decision. The Verge falls, and the Fae and mortal worlds suffer a double apocalypse. Now Kagan, Lauren, and Tessa must survive in this new, hostile world and discover a way to repair that which has been destroyed while navigating the bonds of duty, love, and vengeance.
Apocalyptic Bodies traces the biblical notions of the end of the world as represented in ancient and modern texts, art, music and popular culture, for example the paintings of Bosch. Tina Pippin addresses the question of how far we, in the late twentieth century, are capable of reading and responding to the 'signs of the times'. It will appeal not only to those studying religion, but also to those fascinated with interpretations of the end of the world.
