Amid the rising heat of this latest culture clash, though, a few  
people on both sides are finding calmer ways to engage, seeking to  
build bridges and even learn from one another. Some Christians,  
concerned that millions of Americans never cross the threshold of a  
church, want to understand why, as well as learn what it is in  
evangelistic efforts that turns people off. Some atheists, worried  
that polls show they are the least accepted social group in the  
country, want to break down stereotypes and change people's attitudes.

So both are willing to sit down together in different venues, discuss  
their divergent perspectives, and, in some cases, jointly visit  
church services across the United States. As a result, they are  
sparking a growing Christian-atheist dialogue on the Web.
