Catholics and the Apocalyptic Imagination
Most people hear “apocalyptic” and think only of end-of-the-world disasters—wars, earthquakes, zombies! But apocalypse is simply the Greek word for revelation or unveiling. The Catholic faith holds that Jesus’ announcement of the Kingdom was itself apocalyptic, announcing the end of the world as both goal and final stage. Join Dr. David Deavel to explore how Catholic apocalyptic novels teach us to view and have peace amid the good, the bad, and the ugly of the end times. (Zombies not included.)
The event will include a short lecture by Dr. Dave Deavel, followed by a panel discussion with Dr. Jessica Hooten Wilson and Dr. Billy Junker and Q&A with participants.
