Dr. Martin Hughes was raised in a conservative Church of Christ family that embraced the fundamentalist Quiverfull movement, but though he aspired to be an apologist in the mold of C.S. Lewis, his study of literature left him on a path of apostasy. Now an atheist writer who manages the Barrierbreaker blog at patheos.com, Dr. Hughes is struggling to come to terms with a secular community that has disappointed him nearly as much as the Church. Though he has previously taken an aggressive anti-theistic approach with those who still defend Christianity, Dr. Hughes has now found some measure of peace with the role of the Church in America today.
