An epic journey into the deepest mysteries of faith.
Lost is not just a television show. It has become much larger than that, growing into a complex, mystery-filled epic that has garnered over 23 million participants. Some might call these people viewers, but you don’t just watch Lost - you participate in it. It demands that you dialogue with the story, seeking theories, discussing with friends, and comparing yourself to the characters.
Lost has broken all the formulas for television, and in doing so has drawn together millions of people on a shared journey that explores life, faith, history, science, philosophy, hope, and the basic questions of what it means to be human. It’s the seemingly infinite ideas, philosophies, and biblical metaphors that draw us in and leave us wanting more.
The Gospel According to Lost explores each of these elements in an analysis of faith and metaphor - a perfect resource for those who want to go even deeper into the journey. Inside, you’ll discover what Lost has to say about:
The clash between faith and reason, on the island and in real life
The struggle with guilt that consumes each character - and sometimes us too
The dichotomy between fatalism and fate, and what the Bible advises
How being lost - on an island or in society - presents an opportunity for reinvention that liberates some and paralyzes others
