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. I'm positive.


You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll cringe.


But 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. And I share some suggestions, too.


Written as narrative, 52 Churches calls us to embrace all the branches of Jesus's church and expand our practice of worshiping God. And I invite you to join me on this personal, spiritual sojourn of discovery.


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.


Peter DeHaan, PhD, often makes religious people squirm, but spiritual seekers cheer. He's not trying to be provocative, but he seeks truth, even if it makes some people uncomfortable. He yearns for Christians to push past the status quo and reconsider how they practice their faith in every area of their lives. Peter earned his doctorate, awarded with high distinction, from Trinity College of the Bible and Theological Seminary.

Wasn't visiting 52 churches in a year enough?

No way. Not even close.


Let the journey of discovery continue in this poignant sequel to 52 Churches. This time we take a wider swath as we visit more of Jesus's churches. In More Than 52 Churches you'll get:


More variations in Jesus's church. More cringe-worthy moments.More ways to worship God and celebrate Jesus.More spiritual diversity to explore.More of God at work.


You'll get all this and much more in More Than 52 Churches.


More education, more entertainment, and more insight.


Only you won't have to endure the gut-churning apprehension of walking into a different church each Sunday. Instead experience the journey vicariously week by week, church by church.


Join Peter and his wife as they bravely—some might say naïvely—seek what God teaches as they engage with more local branches of Jesus's church.


More Than 52 Churches is an insightful journey for church members, an essential guide for church leaders, and a hopeful encouragement for church visitors.


If 52 Churches left you wanting more, then More Than 52 Churches is sure to deliver.
