My name is Zach J. Hoag, and I’m an author, preacher, and creator from New England.
I’m writing a book right now called The Light is Winning: Why Religion Might Just Bring Us Back to Life, 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.
My space here at Patheos is all about “Finding Our Faith’s Center (Jesus!) and the Church’s Future.” Which means it’s a place for digging deeper into the culture shift taking place all around us, and what that means for our faith and for the church. It’s my belief that we need to find our anchor in Jesus and the religious practices that have always defined our faith, even as we discern the new and changing future of how we envision and participate in the church.
