How would people respond if they showed up at church one Sunday morning only to discover someone or something had actually, physically moved it? Undoubtedly, they would go out and find it! And that's what four unforgettable characters from Who Moved My Church? set out to do! But how they go about locating it and then how they respond—and what they do—once they find it is so different, you'd never guess they attend the same church. Ultimately, Nappa's parable will spur church attendees to tackle one of the enduring questions of Christian history: How is the Church to interact with culture? The question is all the more pressing for pastors and laity in light of dramatic and rapid changes taking place in society on what feels like a daily basis. Humorous, entertaining, and thought provoking, Who Moved My Church? will be the center of discussion in homes, small groups, Sunday-school classes and churches everywhere.

If Who Moved My Church? stirs a bit of controversy within the Church community, don't blame author Mike Nappa. Despite his tendencies to stir the pot from time to time, it's never been his intention to make people angry; pensive perhaps; thoughtful definitely; but never angry. Inspired by the mainstream book Who Moved My Cheese, Nappa's book Who Moved My Church? was a logical approach to tackle the tricky issue of Christianity and popular culture.
"I started wondering if I could somehow express what I was thinking and seeing in my society in a similar way using a parable," Nappa says. "The story began to unfold in my mind, so much so that it actually kept me awake several nights in a row. Finally, I was so exhausted from lack of sleep that I decided I had to write it down or else I'd never get any rest!"
Nappa admits that Who Moved My Church? isn't the most comfortable book to read. Its stark portrayal of the different ways the Church deals with the tough issues that modern society tosses its way is challenging, to say the least.
"My biggest hope is that this book will be a spark to help us Christians think through - and discuss - the way we interact with our culture," Nappa says. "I simply want to hold up a mirror on Christians interacting with society and let that speak for itself."About the Author:
