The Rhetoric of Exclusion

(p.126) 10 Conclusion
Who Rides the Beast?

Paul B. Duff (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter asks if the thesis that John invented, the crisis depicted in the visions of the Apocalypse, is credible. In answer to this question, the final chapter compares John's rhetoric to the rhetoric used by the aggressors in the Bosnian and Kosovo crises in the 1980s and 1990s. In both the first‐ and twentieth‐century cases, there seemed to have been a great disparity between the stories told and the reality lived. In other words, a powerful story can easily overwhelm the realities of history. The chapter concludes with some thoughts on the final outcome of the crisis in the churches of the Apocalypse.
