You’ve probably seen Michelle and I’s numerous tweets about the book we’re working on, Share the Well.
What is the book about?
Share the Well…
...will tell the compelling and inspiring story of GCC’s holistic church planting movement in India. This movement started with 15 followers of Jesus dreaming together in a room and has now blossomed to a movement of over 120,000 followers of Jesus gathering in over 950 churches transforming entire villages. We want to bring the story of what is happening in India back home. More than that, we hope to inspire people to dream about God unleashing that kind of movement right here, in our own backyard.
...will take those big statistics and make them small by telling the stories of individuals who have been transformed. 15 stories of changed lives.
...will be fast paced, story-based, and a quick read. The entire book will be approximately 150 pages including photography.
...will be visually stunning. Share the Well will be laid out as a travel journal. Color photography will be on every other page, accompanying each story with pictures of the people and places described. Wait till you see the photos! The photos capture the heart and essence of every story.
...will have a “twist” ending. No spoilers here. You’ll have to pick up a copy. (Aren’t you curious?)
...will be a conversation starter among friends and an invitation to “Go!”
...will be a mutli-media experience. The book will be accompanied by a documentary film.
…will raise funding for the movement in India. All those involved – the authors, the photographers, the videographers, the editor, the design team – are donating their services. Every cent of the proceeds goes directly to the field in India. Every book sold feeds the movement just a little bit more.
We can’t wait to Share the Well with you. We’re hoping to have it available before Christmas.
