Today we’re excited to host Jonathan Leeman with us, author of Reverberation: How God’s Word Brings Light, Freedom, and Action to His People. We have 3 copies of Jonathan’s book to give away, read on to learn how to enter to win!
1) There are plenty of books written about Scripture. What was your motivation behind writing Reverberation?
3) It seems like these days people are more interested in watching something than in hearing something? We live in the age of the eye and not the age of the ear. Why focus, then, on the power of words?
“Picture it this way. The evangelist or the preacher opens his mouth and utters a word, God’s word. But the word doesn’t sound just once. It echoes or reverberates. It reverberates through the church’s music and prayers. It reverberates through the conversations between elders and members, members and guests, older Christians and younger ones. God’s words bounce around the life of the church, like the metal ball in a pinball machine.But the reverberating words shouldn’t stop there. The church building doors should open and God’s words should echo out the doors, down the street, and into the members’ homes and workplaces. The reverberations of sound which began in the pulpit should eventually be bouncing off the walls in dining rooms, kitchens, and children’s bedrooms; off gymnasium walls, cubicle dividers, and the insides of city bus windows; through emails, text messages, and internet pages.The goal of this book is to follow this path.”
Enter to win a free copy of Reverberation! We have 3 giveaway copies and will be emailing and announcing the winners on Wed., October 5th.
