Well, it’s been an exciting ride so far with the Christ Proposal. Without a nationally recognized publisher or marketing agents, we’ve already been able to touch a lot lives and that’s worth cheering about. One testimony we received was of a woman who purchased a book on opening night. She read it in one sitting, cried, and then bought 20 more to give away to her friends. Our original intent was not to write this project with a women’s audience in mind, but that’s kind of how it all evolved. So the publisher, artist, and I have already had preliminary conversations about doing a similar work geared more toward men. In addition to the various ministries and churches we’ve contacted, Barns & Noble has picked the book up for distribution. But the most exciting thing is just imagining all the lives that can be brought to see the love of Christ through this project. If you don’t have a copy yet, you can grab one through B&N or contact us for bulk orders and ministry projects. If you need one free, shoot us an email and we’ll see what we can do. Keep praying that God will use this project to open up hearts.
I’m excited to report that “The Christ Proposal” is going public this weekend at the “First Friday Art Walk” in Amarillo, Texas. We’ll also begin offering the book here at Kingdomology starting this Saturday along with some other outlets. What is The Christ Proposal? Well I’m glad you asked. It all really began as somewhat of an academic discussion just over a year ago when we were in a transitional period of our ministry. We had finished up a church plant in Nor. Cal. and having passed off the baton to the leadership team there we were basing in Amarillo while we waited for clarity on the next move. During this time I was doing some manual labor for a friend when he brought up a discussion he had heard on the radio while traveling. The focal point was a minister’s comment about Jesus Christ making a proposal to his Bride; or the Church. It was a fascinating thought as scripture does refer to the Church as the Bride of Christ. Out of these discussions, a book was born. The Proposal is a devotional book using direct scripture references and scriptural allusions woven into a first person narrative as though Jesus Christ were speaking directly to His Bride; the Church. But the greater implication is the personal impact of how Christ is also speaking to us as God’s children. (more…)
