The actual meaning of the word apocalypse is not “disaster” but “unveiling.” Drawing on John’s prophetic apocalypse, Catherine Keller unveils a “dream reading” of our current global crisis—particularly the threat of climate change and ecological devastation. In this reading, John’s text is not a foretelling of future events, but a parable of our present reality, which exposes the deep, spiritual roots of these threats. Dr. Keller is the George T. Cobb Professor of Constructive Theology at Drew University in Madison, New Jersey.
