About-

By some estimates, as many as fifty million Americans believe that the Apocalypse - when God will remake the world, Jesus will return to rule, and only the faithful will survive - is near. In Apocalypse, psychoanalyst and historian Charles B. Strozier offers a rare and intimate look at the inner lives of such believers through a study of fundamentalist Christians in New York City today.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"This beautifully written book illuminates a profoundly important strand of American religious culture that has been too long ignored. A substantial achievement."

- Paul Boyer, author of When Time Shall Be No More: Prophecy Belief In Modern American Culture

"Strozier brings down to earth and to our time believers who say they cannot wait for an end to earth and the beginning of God's new time. They may carry the kind of 'Repent!' sign one associates with prophets in cartoons. Mr. Strozier figuratively carries one that says 'Understand!'

- Martin E. Marty, New York Times Book Review

"Filled with insightful vignettes"

- Library Journal
