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

I wrote a book called Nothing but the Blood: The Gospel According to Dexter, and I write in a variety of spaces like HuffPost Religion, Religion News Service, and my personal blog.

This space, The Apocalypse Review, is all about presenting you with “news and views from the end of the world.” But before you close your browser tab thinking this is some kooky end-times blog, rest assured that I mean this somewhat ironically. While many Christians are obsessed with THE END and all its rapturous details, I think there is a very real end that has come upon us. Christian faith decline in the U.S. signals an end to the status quo, and that brings with it a very real loss of influence, status, and power.

But it’s also signaling a new beginning – an opportunity to step forward into a brilliant future and a flourishing faith. There is an apocalypse of sorts upon us, yes. And yet, it is not a problem to be solved but an opportunity to be embraced.

TAR is a curated catalogue of the News, Reviews, and Opinion signaling this apocalypse – and heralding the hope that comes after.
