As we approach the new millennium there is a growing interest within western religion in the apocalypse. In Apocalyptic Bodies Tina Pippin traces the biblical notions of end times as represented in ancient and modern texts, art, music and popular culture, and addresses the question of how we, in the late twentieth century, are to be competent and ethical readers of and responders to the " signs of the times." Apocalyptic Bodies presents a postmodern reading of the biblical texts and offers new ways of thinking about the bible and the end of the world.
