Item description for Escape into the Future: Cultural Pessimism and its Religious Dimension in Contemporary American Popular Culture by John Stroup, Glenn W. Shuck, Rosemary Wette, Walter R. Frontera, Norbert Bachl, Eric Myott & Tim Ohr...

Escape into the Future analyzes the power of pessimism, showing links between present-day religious pessimism and the nihilism of popular culture. Stroup and Shuck rummage through interesting and eclectic body of pop culture - from Fight Club to X-Files to the Left Behind series -pointing out the presence of pessimistic themes throughout. This volume identifies and illuminates the religious language used in these works to articulate America's need to escape from its present cultural path and, ultimately, provide hope that it might do so.
