My name is Zach J. Hoag, and I’m an author, preacher, and binge-watcher from New England.

I’m writing a book right now called After the Apocalypse, which will be released by Zondervan in 2017. And I write in a variety of spaces like HuffPost Religion, Religion News Service, and my author blog.

For publishing inquiries, contact my agent Jenni Burke at DCJA. For writing, preaching, and speaking requests, just send me an email!


Untitled designThis blog, Faithfindings, is a place for “field notes from the frontier of Jesus-centered faith.” If you’re wondering what I mean by Jesus-centered, check out this recent essay. And these three signposts will help to guide my writing and curating here:

Signpost 1: Cultural – looking at pressing and powerful cultural events, issues, and trends through a Jesus-centered lens.

Signpost 2: Theological – diving deeper into the theological dimension of Jesus-centered faith, drawing out implications for life and practice.

Signpost 3: Spiritual – seeking out the active, creative, and innovative work of the Jesus-centered Spirit in the world and in the church.

Posts will appear in the categories of Findings, Essays, Reviews, and New Charismatics. Findings are shorter excerpts from and commentaries on other posts and articles found on the web. Essays are longer articles written by me and other guest writers. Reviews are typically book reviews, excerpts, or author interviews, but sometimes also cover TV, movies, etc. New Charismatics is a space for articles and posts fleshing out this new wave of charismatic thought in the American church.

 I hope you enjoy the content, community, and conversations here!
