Pierre-Philippe Blaser undeniably owes his taste for biblical stories to his mother. Indeed, at the heart of the parental couple, religion is a real area of ​​discord. The youngest of three boys – “I have ten years of difference with my brothers, I am the postscript” – the young Neuchâtelois grew up in Peseux between a mother “engaged in the Protestant Church, organist and catechism instructor” and a father “teacher, often critical of Christianity”.

Very young, the one who became a pastor before becoming the current president of the Reformed Church of the canton of Friborg as well as vice-president of the Evangelical Reformed Church of Switzerland (EERS) learned the contradictory exchange, the debate of ideas . He made it his favorite playground, particularly with his classmates at the School of Applied Arts in La Chaux-de-Fonds, where he trained in metal engraving.
