Religion has always played a special role in the life of the United
States. This has been true at Puritan times and it is still true today.
The essays in Apocalypse Soon? chart the sometimes open,
sometimes hidden connections between American popular culture and
religion. They offer a closer look on a wide variety of cultural phenomena
that reach from Puritan millennialism to George Bush’s appeal to the
Christian right, from Marilyn Manson’s Antichrist Superstar to
the Christian metal band Saviour Machine, and from TV series like
Family First, Dead Like Me and Lost to Christian diet
and chastity programs.
