Those are some of the daunting questions that haunted Zach Olsen through his faith crisis and tentative steps toward reestablishing a new worldview. Before realizing the religion of his birth wasn’t true, Olsen had completed a two-year stint as a missionary, married in the Mormon temple and had four kids who were reared under the church’s precepts. His book traces the first warning signs of losing his faith: the denial, the avoidance and then the shocking realization that what had once been absolute truth was a man-made invention all along. At the outset of his faith crisis, he fell into a deep depression, lost all sense of meaning and suffered to make sense of what to do with his life. Starting from square one, he set out to establish a new belief system of his own, drawing on psychology, physics, ancient philosophy, Eastern religions, mysticism and the nature of reality itself. With compelling, unflinching prose, ExMormon’s Search For Meaning provides insights, advice and hope for anyone starting over after a crisis of faith.
