Longtime Christian Jim Henderson realized he'd been immersed in church culture for so long that he had no idea how a nonbeliever might interpret a usual Sunday service...or what might inspire him or her to come back.
So he decided to ask! Jim invited an atheist--Matt Casper--to visit twelve leading churches with him and give the "first impression" perspective of a skeptic. Week after week, this spiritual odd couple attended services at churches all over the country and documented their experiences and reactions. Follow along with Jim and Casper, and eavesdrop as they discuss what they found.
