Abstract:Geopolitical analysis has left religion in the margins and footnotes of its scholarship. This thesis will help rectify this shortcoming. Evangelist Mark Hitchcock and his prophetic biblical interpretations have proliferated in the United States, influencing millions of Americans. Hitchcock's exegesis is based on four 'evil' geopolitical containers: the 'Muslim alliance', the 'Roman Empire', Russia, and the 'kings of the Far East'. Through the Rapture and through biblical dictation/interpretation, Hitchcock is able to transcend Earth to write his Apocalyptic geopolitics and qualify the character of the people living in his geopolitical blocs as homogeneous units of evil. This thesis traces the reasoning strategies of how Hitchcock separates himself from the materiality of world politics, claims to 'know the future' through detached, objective, unproblematized theatrical and visual analogies, allowing him to see the world as a whole, and giving him the power to 'know' the Other.
