The actual meaning of the word “apocalypse” is not “disaster” but “unveiling.” Drawing on John’s prophetic Apocalypse, Keller unveils a “dreamreading” of our current global crisis—particularly the threat of climate change and ecological devastation. John’s text is not a foretelling of future events, but a parable of our present reality, which exposes the deep spiritual roots of these threats.

“Catherine Keller succeeds in confronting the terminal forces of destruction of our present time with the message of the mysterious and terrifying Book of Revelation. A brilliant work taking the apocalypse in the double sense of the word as revelation and end-time seriously, full of surprising discoveries.”—Jürgen Moltmann

This book plays wonderfully between ‘the overstated and the unspeakable,’ to reveal deep patterns between the world of John’s apocalypse and our own, calling us to the possibility of a last chance for our increasingly uninhabitable planet.”—Kathryn Tanner, Yale Divinity School

Delivers a chilling, occasionally thrilling, and always arresting rumination on that most alien, yet never more relevant, biblical book—the book that tells us we must mend or end.”—Stephen D. Moore, author, Untold Tales from the Book of Revelation

Catherine Keller is one of the greatest living theologians and in Facing Apocalypse she opens up that oft-hidden and neglected text of John’s Apocalypse, horses, dragons, and all. . . . Read this book and don’t be left behind.”—Tripp Fuller, host, Homebrewed Christianity Podcast
