Jim And Casper Go To Church

Today I had my regular Idealab email from Off The Map. There is a feature on the new book Jim And Casper Go To Church by Off The Map founder Jim Henderson and atheist Matt Casper. Henderson takes Casper to visit various churches across America and asks for his frank assessments. The foreword, introduction and first chapter (on Rick Warren‘s Saddleback Church) can be read on the web here in PDF format. It’s so illuminating it’s gone straight into my Amazon wish list, even though I’ve only just ordered some more books. Do read that first chapter online, it looks unmissable for those who want to connect church with the ‘lost’ (or ‘missing’, as Henderson prefers to say).

  1. Thanks for the tip … i have come across Off the Map, and have read a bit, but this is the most comprehensive “extract” i have read.

    I really enjoyed the interaction between Jim and Casper, and thought the stuff on defending the space was brilliant. Now i am wondering what someone who doesn’t share my Christian Faith, would think of our church?!
