Great stories are happening everywhere in the mission field and around the world. Sometimes these stories hit their mark, but more often than not these stories of God at work often stay hidden, are told ineffectively, or miss their audience completely.
This one-of-a-kind handbook from two journalists-turned-missionaries gives practical tips for the rest of us on how to "report" on what God is doing around the world. You don't need an expensive camera or an all-access pass to find and tell a great story. You just need a few trade secrets and the right questions to ask: "What is God up to? How can I get in on it?" The authors write with a special eye on and for the Christian missions world to help bloggers, missionaries, and world-travelers effectively report stories of God's work around the globe. From fundraising to newsletters to "Missions Sunday" presentations and everywhere in between, this book will help energize the Church for the Great Commission. Like the gospel writer Luke (a reporter in the Bible!), we need to give careful, detailed, credible accounts of what God is doing. And let His work speak for itself!
"The idea of journalists training missionaries to be storytellers is unique and can change the face of missions. Great stories engage people and can energize the church to more impassioned prayer and even more sending and going. I applaud Jim and Lincoln's work." - Jerry B. Jenkins
