From the Publisher
"In clear and precise prose, Chapman investigates not just the text, but also the worlds it creates and that created it, taking all of them seriously while exposing them to the highest level of intellectual scrutiny. I wish I'd had this volume in my hands when I tried to teach Left Behind."
--Eric Michael Mazur, editor of Encyclopedia of Religion and Film and co-editor (with Kate McCarthy) of God in the Details: American Religion in Popular Culture
"Plotting Apocalypse is the most insightful and compelling literary analysis of the Left Behind series published to date. Jennie Chapman's account of the novels demonstrates their surprising theological complexity and ethical ambivalence, and opens up important new scholarly approaches to this profoundly American phenomenon."
--Crawford Gribben, author of Writing the Rapture: Prophecy Fiction in Evangelical America and Evangelical Millennialism in the Trans-Atlantic World, 1500-2000
