Publisher's Summary

If anyone had good reason to join the league of the "Nones", the "Dones", and the deconstructionists, it would be Zach Hoag. After growing up and out of the compound walls of a Texas cult and becoming a failed church planter in one of the most post-Christian cities in America, Zach was faced with both a crisis and a choice. He loved Jesus yet questioned: if the church is such a broken system, is it really worth belonging to anymore?

The viral upswing of the "spiritual but not religious" trend has cast religion as going rapidly out of style. Yet even in his own desert of deconstruction, Zach couldn't shake his desire for a spiritual home. His search ultimately led him to look behind the statistics, where Zach found an astonishing undercurrent subversively at work.

The truth, as Zach discovered, is that we are in a cultural moment of apocalypse. Not an end-of-the-world apocalypse but in the very literal sense of the word, which translates simply as "a revealing". Perhaps the downtrend of Christian faith in America is just the kind of Great Revealing we need to show us who we really are as American Christians, who Jesus really is in our midst, and how we can step into the flourishing faith he has always intended for us.

For anyone who is anxious about the future of the church and their place in it, The Light Is Winning rallies to an unexpected, unshakeable hope. Could it be that we've made religion out to be the culprit when in fact religion is just what we need to revive us? Could it be that our struggle for relevance must come to a necessary end so that we can get to the real? After all, isn't this the essence of the story of God that death paves the way for a resurrected, deeply rooted, flourishing faith? Such faith can be yours. The Light Is Winning will show you how.
