Part 2 of a series that addresses the question “Why was End Times/Left Behind/Rapture theology *so popular* by the time we grew up in the 90s and 2000s?” Please start with Part 1, last week’s episode. My main argument: 1. The people whose evangelizing kicked off the Jesus Movement were primarily fundamentalists and they were themselves already very focused on biblical prophecy 2. In the early 70s, there was enough global chaos and uncertainty, along with one very important “fulfilled prophecy” that made it seem plausible that the world might indeed be coming to a close 3. By the time Left Behind came around in the 90s, that same Jesus Movement generation held the primary places of power and influence in Evangelical circles Covered in this episode: - The Jesus Movement generation were the ones with cultural power in the Evangelical world by the time Left Behind came out - A straightforward and literal reading of the Bible is always popular, especially in America, and it plays into a few common American characteristics - Where are they now? All four interviewees relay their current beliefs about the End Times - Sally answers some of the questions the original interview subjects answered in the End Times Anxiety series Follow Dan on IG: https://www.instagram.com/dancoke/ Edited by Josh Gilbert (joshgilbertmedia@gmail.com -- he is accepting more work!)
