Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn’t matter to me. Going to bed at night saying we’ve done something wonderful, that’s what matters to me.
— Steve Jobs

Kind Words From Some Friends

"Mike McHargue has established himself as one of the most thoughtful and necessary Christian voices of our time."

Rachel Held Evans, author of ‘Searching for Sunday’ and ‘A Year of Biblical Womanhood’


"Science Mike is way too funny to be as smart as he is and way too honest, touching, insightful and entertaining to be ignored. What I mean is, I resent his multiple talents. Any time he's speaking my ears perk up like a dog hearing a can opener, and yours should, too. Also, feed your dog."

Pete Holmes, Star of HBO's Crashing and host of You Made it Weird with Pete Holmes


"Mike has the uncanny ability-maybe the better word would be power-to explain and describe and articulate that something beautiful like few people I've ever heard. Mike is a rare talent, a rare voice, a rare soul."

Rob Bell, New York Times bestselling author and speaker


“I honestly don't know whether I'd still be a Christian or not if I hadn't met Mike.  I consider him to be one of the most interesting and important voices in American Christianity right now.”

Michael Gungor, singer/songwriter in Gungor
