Christianity Today just published a Bible study based on the Big Story, the diagram featured in True Story: A Christianity Worth Believing In. It’s a follow-up to the article they published last July. It’s not free, but for a small fee, you can download it and make up to 1,000 copies for your church or organization.
Hey James, I wanted to thank you so much for signing that copy of your book for me when you bumped into my friend Chris at his church in San Diego the other Sunday! I was chatting with him earlier this year and wondered if he’s met you. He thought that you had been the speaker at an event he attended a couple years ago. He said the message was excellent.
I spoke to him on skype a moment ago and he told me he’d met you. I was thrilled that you knew who I was! Thanks for your thoughtfulness,
Hi Steve — it really is a small world! Hopefully we’ll meet in person one day!
Next time I’m down seeing Chris maybe we will get a chance to meet. Or next time you’re in the Toronto area…
I love this presentation. My husband and I serve in Poland with Greater Europe Mission. I really believe that you have communicated the Gospel clearly and in a framework that really makes sense to this generation. Our sons are considering trying to use it (in Polish) for their next youth outreach event. Thanks for your efforts!!
Thanks Karen! Blessings on you and your ministry. And if it gets translated into Polish, I’d love to see it!
Hey James, I just got the book today (Chris forgot to bring it with him this summer). Thanks for your kind words. I’m looking forward to re-reading it. I gave away my original copy of TS to a worker for Campus Crusade who grew up at our church. She works in Quebec on a University campus. I’ll let you know if she has any feedback on how the presentation works in that context. See you!
I just want to say that I really enjoy the Big Story diagram. I attended one of your seminars at Urbana 09 on the Big Story and ever since I have been trying to figure out a way to use it to show people the Love of Christ. Our InterVarsity chapter is going to be having a campus outreach this comming week and we had a “sharing your faith” training today to prepair for the outreach and the Big Story diagram is one that we went over as well as the bridge diagram. I have read your book as well and it encouraged me to start thinking of ways that I could share my faith and help others come to Christ so thank you for writting the book and for the Big Story diagram.
Hi Hayley! Thanks for the encouragement. Many blessings in the coming week!
This gospel presentation seem very effective but I was wondering why charge a fee. Jesus gave his life for free. Many christians grope for ways to share the gospel on the other hand billions of people haven’t heard or understood the gospel.
The Four Spiritual Laws was shared for free.
Hi Ariel —
Thanks for the feedback. Just to be clear, I’m not charging the fee. This was created by Christianity Today, and I was just letting others know.
Both the study guide to the book True Story, and the training guide are both free. Also, the video itself is also free.
