As a child, Amy Mercer never dreamed of living a life riddled by addiction and utter despair. She never imagined finding herself in defiant rebellion against God Himself. But by her teenage years, she was on a collision course tainted with destructive living - struggling with alcoholism, drug addiction, and extreme clinical depression - looking for answers in same-sex relationships and in the occult. By her early twenties, her journey accelerated into a mad dash toward insanity followed by a close call with death. What would it take to reconnect with the land of the living? In today's world, counterfeits to freedom are readily delivered in a variety of enticing packages, promising peace in the midst of pain-freedom in the midst of fear-meaning in the midst of cynicism. But can the offerings of our current culture satisfy the longing of our hearts? Losing My Religion is about what happens when we veer from the good kind of religion (acknowledgement of the divine or sacred); it is also about the liberation in walking away from the bad kind of religion (the ritualistic act of trying to win God's approval in our own strength). Losing my Religion is about finding out what really matters.
