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.
