Chris Haw

Chris Haw is the co-author of the best-selling book Jesus for President with Shane Claiborne. He recently finished his book about his joining the Catholic Church, From Willow Creek to Sacred Heart, due October 8th, 2012. He has been interviewed in America Magazine, Christianity Today, National Catholic Reporter, Sojourners, CNN, Catholic TV, Al-Jazeera and was featured in the DVD series "Another World Is Possible" and the documentary The Ordinary Radicals.

Haw is a carpenter, painter, theologian, and potter. He and his family are members of Sacred Heart Catholic Church and Camden Houses, a small Christian community in Camden, New Jersey. He grew up Catholic, spent many years growing and serving at Willow Creek Community Church outside of Chicago, and a few months studying ecology and theology while living in the rainforest of Belize.
Besides being a mostly full time carpenter, Haw now enjoys periodically teaching at various churches, conferences, and classes, as well as hosting with his community small conferences on "the new monasticism." He loves to talk about the challenges of theology, ecclesiology, Catholicism, Girardian thought, and community--especially from his perspective in Camden. A graduate of Eastern University with degrees in Sociology and Theology, Haw did his graduate work in Theology at Villanova University and now occasionally teaches Religious Studies at Cabrini College.
