Download PDF How To Survive The End Of The World by Lawrence Olivier and published by Editora Bibliomundi. This book was released on 2022-03-09 with total page 119 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Most of us have thought about how we would handle various types of scenarios that could signal the end of the world. There are plenty of movies on the subject, psychological papers, and even survivalists that are part of reality TV shows. Perhaps you have had dreams about being one of the few left and what you would do in order to survive. It doesn’t matter If think that the chances of a zombie apocalypse are next to zero. There are plenty of other types of scenarios that can occur. There may be a meteor in space that creates serious damages her on Earth. Even though nuclear weapons seem to be more controlled than in the 80’s, that doesn’t mean the risk of nuclear war is off the table. What about the risks of natural disasters that are devastating in terms of the volume of damage that they can create? In recent years, the number of tornadoes, hurricanes, and other natural disasters have continued to increase. There can be many reasons for this including changes in overall climate. You can make yourself crazy though and lose sleep thinking about the what ifs. A better way to handle all of it is to prepare for the worst case scenario. Hopefully, you would never need to have such items put to use. Yet if you do, you will significantly increase your chances of survival. We live in a society where it seems so easy to get what you need that we take for granted how tough it would play out with a huge disaster. No more buying what you need online or walking into a grocery store for food. No more electricity when you flip a switch or running water when you turn on the faucet. While we can’t control the events that may one day unfold, we can control how we are prepared for them. With some basic items stored, you can have an upper hand on many other people that failed to get anything in place. Creating some types of allies that you would be able to depend on if you had a need during such time could make the difference between life and death. Weapons may play a large role in who is able to survive and who isn’t. Not only in terms of hunting for food, but also in self-protection. In the event of some form of aliens, mutations, or zombies, you need to be able to destroy them. The other issue is that other humans may try to come and take your food, shelter, and supplies if you don’t have weapons to keep them away. Your overall health and well-being are important at every stage of life. During an end of the world scene, you won’t be able to just walk into the doctor’s office or to get medications. Being fit mentally and physically can help you to be prepared for survival mode. You may be able to stay in your home, but what if you have to make shelter on the go? You need to have a plan A, plan B, variations for different scenarios, and the ability to adapt to what is going on around you. Depending on the situation, you may need to survive for only a few days but you may need to fully care for yourself and your family for months or even years before society is able to regroup. There is plenty to think about in order to be prepared for anything. The end of the world may never happen in your lifetime, but what if it does? Will you be among those that are prepared and can survive? Will you be able to keep your family safe and to help them thrive in spite of all of it? In future chapters, you will get a clear idea of what you need in order to achieve such a goal. Think of it like pieces of a puzzle. In order for the picture to look like it should, you need to have every single piece in place. Being prepared means you can stop worrying about it and you can focus on what is going on in your life that you can control.

Download PDF How to Survive the Apocalypse by Robert Joustra and published by Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing. This book was released on 2016-05-20 with total page 176 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Incisive insights into contemporary pop culture and its apocalyptic bent The world is going to hell. So begins this book, pointing to the prevalence of apocalypse — cataclysmic destruction and nightmarish end-of-the-world scenarios — in contemporary entertainment. In How to Survive the Apocalypse Robert Joustra and Alissa Wilkinson examine a number of popular stories — from the Cylons in Battlestar Galactica to the purging of innocence in Game of Thrones to the hordes of zombies in The Walking Dead — and argue that such apocalyptic stories reveal a lot about us here and now, about how we conceive of our life together, including some of our deepest tensions and anxieties. Besides analyzing the dsytopian shift in popular culture, Joustra and Wilkinson also suggest how Christians can live faithfully and with integrity in such a cultural context.

Download PDF How to Survive the Apocalypse by Jacqueline Allen Trimble and published by University of Georgia Press. This book was released on 2022-08-15 with total page 96 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: How to Survive the Apocalypse, the second collection from poet Jacqueline Allen Trimble, examines the many apocalypses that African Americans have weathered, advising that those who wish to avoid annihilation should “live by rage and joy and turpentine.” Trimble reimagines the sonnet and the parable, producing poems of ironic indictment and joyous celebration. The book explores aspects of the Black experience in America, from Black woman pride, Nat Turner, kneeling, and the burning down of fast-food restaurants. Sometimes funny, sometimes biting, How to Survive the Apocalypse connects history to the contemporary and in the writing proves that the only balm for rage is creativity.
Download PDF The End of Youth Ministry? (Theology for the Life of the World) by Andrew Root and published by Baker Academic. This book was released on 2020-03-17 with total page 240 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: What is youth ministry actually for? And does it have a future? Andrew Root, a leading scholar in youth ministry and practical theology, went on a one-year journey to answer these questions. In this book, Root weaves together an innovative first-person fictional narrative to diagnose the challenges facing the church today and to offer a new vision for youth ministry in the 21st century. Informed by interviews that Root conducted with parents, this book explores how parents' perspectives of what constitutes a good life are affecting youth ministry. In today's culture, youth ministry can't compete with sports, test prep, and the myriad other activities in which young people participate. Through a unique parable-style story, Root offers a new way to think about the purpose of youth ministry: not happiness, but joy. Joy is a sense of experiencing the good. For youth ministry to be about joy, it must move beyond the youth group model and rework the assumptions of how identity and happiness are imagined by parents in American society.

Download PDF Survival and Resistance in Evangelical America by Crawford Gribben and published by Oxford University Press, USA. This book was released on 2021-03-23 with total page 224 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "Over the last thirty years, conservative evangelicals have been moving to the north-west of the United States in an effort to survive and resist the impact of secular modernity. Their activity coincides with the promotion by prominent survivalist authors of a programme of migration to the "American Redoubt," a region encompassing Idaho, Montana, eastern parts of Washington and Oregon, and Wyoming, as a location within which to endure hostile social change or natural disaster. These migration movements have independent origins, but they overlap in their influences and aspirations, working in tandem and sometimes in mutual dependence to offer a vision of the present in which Christian values must be defended, if necessary, by force, and a vision of the future in which American society will be rebuilt according to biblical law. Drawing on Calvinist theology, the social theory of Christian Reconstruction, and libertarian politics, these believers are projecting significant soft power, with their books being promoted by leading secular publishers and being listed as New York Times bestsellers. The strategy is gaining momentum, making an impact in local political and economic life, while being repackaged for a wider audience in publications by a broader coalition of conservative commentators and in American mass culture. These believers recognise that they have lost the culture war - but another kind of conflict is beginning. This book examines the origins, evolution, and cultural reach of the migration that might tell us most about the future of American evangelicalism"--

Being prepared for what’s out there is important—you have to know what to do when everything falls apart. Knowing how to survive the end of the world as we know it will prepare you for anything and everything that could possibly go wrong.

MacDougald, will make sure that you’re never caught off-guard in any situation, from natural and economic disasters to pandemics and civil unrest—even nuclear war. The purpose of this book is to provide the reader with real-world, practical information that will help them to not only survive, but thrive during a period that is likely not just another downturn in the economic cycle, but according the many experts, instead the beginning of a long downward slide, and possibly the very peak in our 10,000-year experiment of civilization. While you may not plan on being in a war zone, you never know what will happen, so the best thing to always do is be prepared. Whether it's learning how to barter and haggle, how to get the proper camouflage, or how to choose the right weapon for any situation, MacDougald and Surviving the Apocalypse will give you the training and knowledge that goes into surviving any and every dangerous situation imaginable.
Download PDF Apocalypse Survival by T. Gordon Larsen and published by Dog Ear Publishing. This book was released on 2016-01-28 with total page 338 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This is a manual for Evangelical Christians who anticipate the “second coming” of Jesus Christ and understand that they may be called upon to endure some of the hardships of the End Times. It takes the genre of survival literature up a notch by addressing the moral, ethical and doctrinal questions that Christians should consider in planning for existential challenges in an uncertain future. The author doesn’t “reinvent the wheel” on common survival issues, but covers items of interest to Believers who want to develop a survival strategy that deals with the world as they find it, yet is consistent with their faith. Among these are: Does charity really “begin at home?” Is it righteous to use lethal force in defense of yourself and others? Does subscribing to the Pre-Tribulation Rapture mean that Believers need not be concerned about coping with the End Times?
Download PDF John of Rupescissa ́s VADE MECUM IN TRIBULACIONE (1356) by Matthias Kaup and published by Taylor & Francis. This book was released on 2016-12-08 with total page 348 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The VADE MECUM IN TRIBULACIONE was meant as an eschatological manual for the thirteen catastrophic years between its composition in December 1356 and the Thousand-Year Reign of Christ expected to begin in 1370. This manual, permeated by passion for clerical reform, was intended to give righteous Christians practical and spiritual advice on how to survive this period of tribulation. Likewise, it aimed to inform them about what to expect from the envoys of Satan, the Western and the Eastern Antichrists, but also from Christ’s warriors, the papal restorer and his secular assistant, the French-Roman Emperor. Moreover, it offered a brief outline of Christ’s Thousand-Year Reign and of Armageddon. The VADE MECUM was written by John of Rupescissa OFM (c. 1310-1366), the most prolific apocalyptic author of the Middle Ages, as the central work of in all three manuals designed to prepare Christendom for the impending crises. As a completely new text type and summary of the late Rupescissa’s doctrines, this eschatological manual fascinated numerous readers in the Late Middle Ages, who copied, reworked and translated it and made it thus a pivotal text of medieval apocalypticism: ten versions of the Latin VADE MECUM in more than forty manuscripts have come down to us. Rupescissa’s eschatological manual is his last known and most widely distributed work; the present study provides an annotated critical edition equipped with an English translation. It inducts in the manual’s contents, places them in the context of Rupescissa’s work and medieval prophetic literature, investigates important aspects of its reception and clarifies the relationships between its different versions. Furthermore, it ends with a critical edition of the VENI MECUM IN TRIBULACIONE, the most influential compendious version of the VADE MECUM. Thus this book offers an indispensable fundamental contribution to the flourishing studies of Rupescissa and medieval apocalypticism.
