Available on Amazon- 52 Churches: A Yearlong Journey Encountering God, His Church, and Our Common Fa
Visit fifty-two churches in a year? Am I crazy? Maybe. I spent a year visiting a different Christian church every Sunday: Protestant mainline, evangelical, and charismatic, Roman Catholic, and more.I visited a church just like yours.
Written as a narrative, 52 Churches doesn't rip at the modern church. It's not a church-shopping romp or a mean-spirited journalistic exposé. Instead it's a gift that offers encouragement, hope, and support to the Christian Church.
"Forcing both my wife and me outside of our comfortable, Christian comfort-zones, our year-long journey helped us to embrace all the branches of Jesus's church and expand our practice of worshiping God," said Peter DeHaan, PhD. "52 Churches is a gift meant to offer encouragement, hope, and support to the Christian Church."
Read 52 Churches for education, read it for entertainment, and read it for the insight gained only from visiting a boatload of churches.
52 Churches is ideal for church leaders, church members, and church outsiders. And if you're still reading this, it's perfect for you, too.
