Eric Bramlett was doing a some cyber surfing and found that the book, The BIG IDEA that he, Jon Ferguson and myself are writing is now available on-line. Wow, we had now idea. And to my knowledge we have not sold our first copy, yet. So, if you want to be the first to order the book click here: The BIG IDEA: Focus the Message, Multiply the Impact.
Here is the quick synopsis of The BIG IDEA book: Nothing is more dangerous than a single compelling idea that is lived out and nothing is more harmless than lots of little ideas never applied. By creatively communicating one BIG IDEA every week your church will transform people into genuine Christ followers who live out the mission of Jesus. Less is more!
It kind of cracks me up that the book is available on-line since we are still finishing it. However, I am really excited about making available all that we have learned about creatively communicating one BIG IDEA to all ages in multiple sites.
Here is what Jen Pedley from 242 Community, a NewThing church said about how the BIG IDEA impacted her ability to follow Jesus: “The Big Idea was the first time in my life that God’s word applied to my everyday, ordinary life. It helped me in a practical, meet you where you are and don’t worry, I’ll still love you, way. No one had ever spoken so clearly about what it meant to be a Christ-follower. Big Idea teaching touches on so many basic truths that, even though I had gone to churches my whole life, I had never really heard it before. When you put God’s word into where people are at today……whew…..I was blown away. I still am.”
