Meet the Author

Although only in his mid-30's, Pastor Peter Haas has already become a well-known pastor, author, and conference speaker. After experiencing a radical conversion to Christianity while working in a nightclub as a rave-DJ, he has traveled the world sharing God's miraculous passion.

In 2004, Peter relocated to Minneapolis and planted an arts-oriented multi-site church called Substance. In just a few short years, Substance has become one of the fastest growing and most youthful mega-churches in the United States. Known for his progressive worship, cell methods, and appeal to unchurched 20-somethings, Pastor Peter speaks at conferences all over the world on progressive church methodology.

He also consults with church planters all over the globe as he serves on the A-Team of the Association of Related Churches. He currently resides in Minneapolis with his wife and three kids.

This book is a great read! Mixed with humor, but has REALLY strong (and much needed in our society) stuff in there too! Definitely recommend reading this book!

I'm from the southern bible belt and we pride ourselves on how close we stay to the bible. Looks like we may have tried so hard we may have started to approach it like the pharisees. Time to look in the mirror. I especially was affected by his take on the familiar "love bank". That one hit me hard as I saw myself as the "complainer" that Peter described. I don't agree with everything, but was struck by enough to recommend this book to anyone. Thanks Peter.
