Zack has spent the last decade writing about the interplay of faith and politics in the public sphere on his eponymous blog, Substack, and Patheos as well as contributing articles to multiple publications. He’s also made appearances in Rolling Stone, The Boston Globe, Huffington Post, and various other media outlets. Zack’s work culminated in the launch of his first book, Unraptured, in 2019 which Publishers Weekly called “a piquant debut.” Using stories drawn from his own faith deconstruction, Unraptured reimagined the biblical theology and application of Revelation to see it not as mysterious code to be unraveled, but a source of hope and liberation, particularly for the least of these among us. His next book, Godbreathed: What It Really Means For the Bible To Be Inspired, will release in the spring of 2023.
Before his public writing career began Zack graduated from Trevecca Nazarene University with an undergraduate double major in Religion and History. He also holds a graduate degree in Theology as well as an additional graduate degree in Christian History from Yale Divinity School. Combined with more than 20 years spent preaching and working in various forms of ministry Zack is perfectly positioned to continue his work reimagining the Church’s relationship with the Bible and its role in the lives of believers.
When not writing about the intersection of faith and politics, Zack can be found traveling and trying out new restaurants with his wife, playing with their two little girls, and sneaking out onto his back porch trying to smoke the perfect rack of ribs on his beloved smoker.
