They say there’s no such thing as a perfect church. Well, one author put that theory to the test. He spent a year visiting a different Christian church every Sunday—52 in all. But he didn’t stop there. He kept going, and when Covid hit, he moved his exploration online.
The result is the Visiting Churches series.
Visiting Churches books are part religious exposé, part travel memoir, and 100% authentic. Peter refuses to hold back punches. You’ll cringe when this Christian author is singled out by a fire-and-brimstone preacher, unnecessarily determined to save his soul out of hell. You’ll find yourself thankful that you weren’t in Peter’s shoes when the pastor told his congregation to greet one another with a holy kiss.
You’ll read about Christian practices that are far different from your own, and in the process gain a deeper understanding of believers from all walks of life and denominational backgrounds.
In his travels, Peter learned about different denominations and worship styles as well as what happens when imperfect humans gather in the name of a perfect God. What he discovered was occasionally funny, always interesting, and at times absurd.
Whether you’re a pastor trying to engage newcomers—and not drive them away, a seasoned church member looking for some chuckles, or a spiritual lurker curious about what goes on beneath the steeples of America’s churches, these books are for you.
Read the Visiting Churches books for an insightful, unforgettable investigation into the strange and mysterious believers who meet behind closed doors each and every Sunday.
