Losing My

Religion

“When I lost my faith, a vast sense of loss descended upon me and everything good and beautiful about this life on earth – God watching over us, the promise that we will return to him – all that was gone. And I was left to search for another reason to live.

Eric T. Hansen was a Mormon missionary for two years in Germany and was a dedicated believer for much of his life.

Then his disillusionment – and the feeling that he was not living his own life – grew so much that he had to leave.

It was the hardest thing he ever did.

Now, many years later, he can look back and see more clearly the reasons he had to leave, but also the good things he left behind.

“Losing My Religion” is his personal story faith, it’s loss and the gaping hole it left behind, and his struggle to live a spiritually authentic life. It is also an honest and intimate look at the Mormon church – its dogmatism, its society-within-a-society, its history and its exceptional theology.

Eric T. Hansen explains the radicalism and genius of the Mormon church, but also tells how he lost his faith and what he gained instead.

Hula Ink is busy preparing a whole slew of videos and books for kids (and, secretly, for adults at the same time). Stay tuned!
