This was one of the first statements I heard from the group of four Christian men I interviewed — and we'll just call them Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. They all attend Bel-Air Presbyterian Church, and range in age from 28 to 40 years old.

It would be easier than meeting him at a bar, or a gym, or my workplace, wouldn't it? At least at church I can presume that the men I'm surrounded by share my faith, and that we have similar beliefs and values in common.
