After years stuck in the painful cycle of past abuse and ongoing addiction, actor and artist Blaine Hogan received the greatest gift: his life fell apart. No longer able to hide behind the veneer of success or find comfort in the shadows of addiction, Blaine was forced to look at the story his life was telling. And while he hadn't lost God, he'd lost himself along the way.

Desperate to find hope, he gave up the career he was building and took a major life detour where he discovered that facing his past was the key to unlocking a new kind of creativity. In Exit the Cave, Blaine shares the stories that shaped him--his own, others', and God's greater story--while exploring how our relationship to our past defines the way we live in the present. Through powerful personal revelations and insightful takeaways, he invites you to take up the practices of radical imagination and real creativity so you can tell a better story with your life.

If you've ever been stuck, addicted, ashamed, discontented, or lost, take courage--a richer, more whole, imaginative, and meaningful life is waiting for you just outside the cave.
