About the Book
Visit Fifty-Two Different Churches in a Year? Was I crazy? Maybe.

My wife and I spent a year visiting 52 churches, a different Christian church every Sunday: Protestant mainline, evangelical, charismatic, nondenominational, Roman Catholic, and more.

I’m sure we visited a church just like yours.

And wow, did we learn a lot. Things that will surprise you and make you cringe. And more than a few things that will inspire you. You’ll:

  • Discover the shocking approaches that some churches use.
  • Learn the essential dos and don’ts when you have a visitor.
  • Make sure your church avoids the really creepy things I saw.
  • Uncover traditional church practices that no longer make sense.
  • See what’s not working, and what to replace it with.

You’ll Laugh, You’ll Cry, You’ll Wince.

But 52 Churches isn’t a rip at the modern church or a mean-spirited journalistic exposé. Instead it’s a gift that offers encouragement, hope, and ideas on how your church can thrive in today’s culture.

About the Author
Peter DeHaan, PhD

Peter DeHaan, PhD, writes about biblical spirituality. He urges Christians to push past the status quo and reexamine their practices.

Many people feel the church let them down, and Peter seeks to encourage them as they search for a place to belong. But he’s not afraid to ask tough questions or make religious people squirm.

Peter earned his doctorate from Trinity College of the Bible and Theological Seminary, awarded with high distinction.
