OUT WITH THE OLD

The end of the world is nigh—again. So it seems with each news cycle. Climate change is real. Terrorism, disease, poverty, and displacement are globally inescapable. When all this modern apocalypse gets to be too much, we may seek solace in our favorite shows or take a chance on that hot new movie. Uh-oh. Chances are good the planet’s unraveling there, too.

The Walking Dead. House of Cards. Birdbox. Extinction. Io. Stranger Things. No matter where you turn for a better story these days, worlds and worldviews are dissolving all around us. It doesn’t matter if you view sci-fi or political thrillers, cop shows or legal dramas. The message is clear: People aren’t who you think they are. Personal security’s a joke. Don’t trust institutions to save you. The danger is here. Choose a side. And come prepared.

Apocalypse isn’t a new genre. It shows up all over the Bible in prophecy, gospels, epistles, and Revelation. Scripture writers themselves borrowed it from the Persians. Apocalypse returns to vogue in times of changing norms and high uncertainty. We feel unsafe. We don’t know who or what to count on. The leadership has failed us. Time to blow a hole through the old order and start over.

Scary as they can seem, apocalyptic stories help bleed off frustration. They also steer us toward perennial things we can count on: faith, friendship, love, courage, justice, and hope. The old order is always ending. A new one is always waiting to be born.
