I Sold My Soul on eBay tells the story of how and why Hemant Mehta, the nonbeliever who auctioned off the opportunity to send him to church, became an atheist and went on to attend a wide variety of church services. It also features his insightful critiques and observations of the churches he visited, including accounts of his visits to some of the best-known churches in the country. After spending Sunday mornings in some of the nation's leading churches, what happened to the man who sold his soul on eBay? Did attending church lead him to change his mind about God? His descriptions and observations will surprise and challenge, revealing how the church comes across to those outside the faith. After all, who better than a nonbeliever to offer an eye-opening assessment of how the gospel is being presented - and to highlight the elements that prove to enhance or diminish an outsider's churchgoing experience.

Hemant Mehta, a blogger at FriendlyAtheist.com who speaks nationwide about his churchgoing experiences and atheism, currently works with the Foundation Beyond Belief, a charity organization targeting nontheistic donors. He is also a high school math teacher in the suburbs of Chicago.

    " Insightful, every Christian should read this book to know how they come off to a skeptic. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chrissy | 1/21/2014

    " Great book. I liked hearing from another point of view. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Judy | 1/19/2014

    " After selling his time in an online auction, Hemant Mehta visited numerous churches at the request of a Christian minister. The minister asked him to write about the appeal and effectiveness of the churches from an outsider's point of view. This book is the result of that collaboration. Highly recommended. "

    " this was really interesting. I'm an atheist too, though I don't know if I would have the inclination to visit many different churches. I thought the depictions of the different churches were very interesting, I have gone to a number of churches in my lifetime, I was raised Catholic and then later became evangelical for a little while, so I could relate to a lot of what the author is talking about as to the church services. "

    " Reads like a term paper: compare and contrast differently-sized Christian churches; then, summarize what works and what doesn't work in "outreach" to non-Christians (or is it non-church-members?). "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jo | 12/28/2013

    " interesting - agree with alot of what he says - but not well-written "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brian | 12/11/2013

    " i loved the premise. the follow=thru was less than extraordinary. based everything on the 1 hour experience rather than the full enchilada. would love to know about the 1.5 hour experience. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 janet | 11/27/2013

    " a little one-sided, misses the point that faith is an integral part of christianity "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Phil Anderson | 10/29/2013

    " This is a must-read for every church leader in America! I loved this book and could not put it down! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Denise | 9/25/2013

    " Every Christian needs this perspective! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Buzz Barr | 7/11/2013

    " Interesting book and and easy read. An Atheist goes from church to church then gives his view about the experience. I thought it was a good book and reveals so ideas for churches to do to reach people like this man. ok read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Andrea | 5/22/2013

    " I picked this one up for the title alone. Bad choice. Back to the library... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 5/13/2013

    " OK. Interesting. But I'm not sure he got the point. I can see how both atheists and Christians will have issues with this. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Josh | 5/8/2013

    " Great book. It's inspired me to try checking out local churches. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris | 1/3/2013

    " Affirmed much of what I already suspected. But the author did a nice job of sharing his observations in a humorous and insightful way. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michael Jones | 12/27/2012

    " An eye-opening book on how a not-from-a-Christian-background sees a Christian church service when he walks through the doors. Fascinating,good information! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rj Grunewald | 12/5/2012

    " This was an awesome story of an atheists perspective on the different things a church does. While it may not represent what everyone who doesn't go to church thinks of our churches, it does do a good job making us think about what other people think when they come into our churchies. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brynn deLorimier | 10/30/2012

    " most people would probably find most of the material to be old news, but as someone who's never been to a church service before, i found it interesting. however the author keeps it a little "safer" than i probably would, or than is needed to classify this book as a page-turner. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joaobaptiste | 10/21/2012

    " Christians have a lot of explaining to do, in order to clarify their belief in God. It can be done, we just are doing a good job at it. "
