Rapture Culture: Exploring the Apocalyptic Imagination   NEW!

According to surveys, over thirty-five million Americans believe that we live in the end times. Some believe they will be taken (or raptured) to heaven in "the last days." Where do these ideas come from? What has shaped the apocalyptic imagination of millions, and how does it influence present day life? This course is designed to explore the way the apocalyptic imagination is shaped by narratives from Hebrew and Christian scripture as well as historical moments that created the realities people live by.
