Publishers Weekly has put out a review of Jim and Casper Go to Church!

I heard about that book on the radio last week and I plan to buy it tomorrow when I go to the bookstore. As a Christian I am excited to finally see another Christian who is not afraid to open his mind to the viewpoint of a non-Christian regarding the church.
It’s my hope that more Christians would understand that not all atheists are anti-religion, just anti the bad stuff religious people do, and that we can all get along if we just maintain a healthy and friendly dialogue.
Another project from the Jim and Casper duo – they have recently launched http://www.churchrater.com. It is a new website ran by a team including a former Pastor and a current Duke Divinity student that allows church seekers and members to rate and discuss their experiences at churches all across the country.
ChurchRater is a combination of things: it’s ‘Yelp’ for churches where visitors can rate and discuss their experiences at church, but it’s also a social network for church goers and seekers, too, a place where people can dialog about their faith and their lives.
