The Friends and Foes of Jesus: Explore How People in the New Testament React to God’s Good News

The Friends and Foes of Jesus, by Peter DeHaan, PhD

Jesus Was Loved. He Was Hated. But He Was Never Ignored

Some people think Jesus was easy-going. Hardly. Everything he did and said sparked passionate reaction. He polarized people. Some adored Jesus to the point of dying for him. Those who feared and hated him ended up killing him.

If you’ve never looked deep into both perspectives . . . it’s time you did.

Will this book challenge you? Yes. Will it make you uncomfortable (in a positive way)? Absolutely. Will it change your life as look at the people who surrounded Jesus in a way you’ve never seen them before? Without question.

52 Churches: A Yearlong Journey Encountering God, His Church, and Our Common Faith

Visit fifty-two churches in a year? Am I crazy? Maybe.

My wife and I spent a year visiting a different Christian church every Sunday. This book is our story.

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

But 52 Churches doesn’t rip at the modern church. Instead it’s a gift that offers encouragement, hope, and support to the Christian Church.

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.


Peter DeHaan books: Women of the Bible: The Victorious, the Victims, the Virtuous, and the Vicious
Women of the Bible: The Victorious, the Victims, the Virtuous, and the Vicious

How does God really feel about women? Listen to some people in church. Watch what they do. You might think God views women as second class. Far from it.

The truth is, the Bible has story after story about how fascinating women are. They’re more nuanced than men, have profound insights we often overlook, and can teach us wisdom that both sexes need to hear.

Women of the Bible digs deep into these Bible stories and uncovers how they rise above their circumstances—even though society pushes them down.
