Current Projects

Peter DeHaan's work-in-progress (WIP), his current projectsPeter DeHaan’s Work In Progress (WIP)

Here is a list of my current projects. I update this page periodically, so check back for the latest news.

52 Churches: What might you learn if you went to a different church every Sunday for a year? Would you be encouraged or discouraged? Would you grow in your understanding of what it is to worship and love God? Would you love his people more or become disillusioned? To find out, you don’t have to actually go on this journey, but can live vicariously through my experience. Follow along through the “52 Churches” thread on my blog.

Status: Looking for a publisher.

Women in the Bible: Women in the Bible examines biblical women, from the well-known to the obscure. It looks at what the Bible tells us about them and challenges readers to evaluate their own lives through these women’s examples. Be inspired; be challenged; be changed. There are over one hundred biblical women who made a difference; you can, too.

God I Don't Want to Go to Church: Seven Churches that Pushed Me Away and the God Who Won't Let Go, by Peter DeHaanGod, I Don’t Want to Go to Church: This is a memoir-style chronicle about someone who generally doesn’t want to go to church, but always has — me! Along the way, you’ll meet Jerry Poet, Counselor Rob, Aunt Jenny, Grinning Tony, Jeff Dub, Lar, and many more in this sometimes humorous, sometimes somber reflection of church life and all that goes with it.

Status: Looking for a publisher or to self-publish.

A Faith ManifestoA Faith Manifesto: This short e-book is an essential belief statement of what it means to follow Jesus as revealed in the Bible. This e-book is now available as a free download and a discussion guide is available.

Status: I plan to relaunch this on Amazon under a new title and with a new cover.

The Convergent ChurchThe Convergent Church: Moving Towards The Unity For Which Jesus Prayed: My dissertation falls under the category of religion, but I prefer to call it spirituality.

Status: Looking for the best way to publish it for the academic world.

I am also revising it to make a version that is less formal and more accessible for the rest of us.

Woodpecker Wars: Woodpecker Wars is the working title of my upcoming book, based on some of the posts from my first blog, “The Musings of Peter DeHaan.”

The site contains over 500 posts, totaling 130,000 words, enough for a couple of books.

Status: I’ve narrowed it down to 250 posts and 62,000 words. My target length is about 40,000 words. This is currently on hold, pending the above projects.
