Three weeks ago, Outspoken: Conversations on Church Communication hit the shelves, so to speak, on Amazon, and the response was overwhelming. The book has already sold about 1,200 copies and has been one of the top selling ministry books on Amazon.com. This is huge! We really appreciate everyone who has been a part of the writing, producing and now selling of this book. Thank you!
Not only are we selling a book that helps churches communicate better, but it’s funding better church communication. Proceeds from the book go to our nonprofit parent, the Center for Church Communication, and a portion will go to Creative Missions.
Some cool stuff people have been saying about this book:
“Outspoken is a blueprint for the Church to effectively leverage new media; and if these insights are applied and practiced, there will be a profound shift in how the Church communicates to the world. Outspoken: Conversations on Church Communication is a must read.” –Church Mag
“How do you interact and communicate with church leaders and attendees? This book will challenge your daily practices and invite you into a rich, ongoing conversation about the importance of effective communication in the church.” –Beth Dahlenburg, Executive Director of Marketing, Willow Creek Association
“We, as communications professionals have a very important job and we serve ourselves well when we learn from the collective wisdom of others in the field. The brilliance with which Outspoken brings together so many voices from the church communications community is a much needed voice and breath of fresh air in my daily grind. Thanks to Tim (and to many of my friends who contributed) for your gift to us!” –Chuck Scoggins
“Outspoken bursts with fascinating anecdotes and sound advice about communication, leadership, branding, design, writing, storytelling, technology, creativity, personal growth and outreach.” –Amy Bishop
“If you’re involved in communicating the greatest story ever told, the message of the gospel, then this book will be invaluable to you!” –Phil Maylor, Salford Elim Church
In case you missed it, Outspoken: Conversations on Church Communications is about how churches can better communicate their message. The church has the greatest story ever told: the message of the gospel. Unfortunately, most churches aren’t doing a great job of communicating it.
