Product Description

Whether we do ministry in a faraway country or a nearby neighborhood, we experience the work that God is doing in lives of people around the world. Yet when we try to communicate those stories to our friends at home, we often fall flat.

How can we share what God is doing in a way that evokes the excitement He deserves?

To experienced journalists-turned-missionaries Jim Killam and Lincoln Brunner, the answer is straightforward: We need to be reporters - gathering information responsibly and crafting stories of God's goodness.

The next time you are challenged to answer the question, "What happened on your mission trip?" or even, "What is happening in your ministry?"...be prepared to answer well. Go Tell It will equip you to tell a compelling story that allows others to see God's work in the world.

Publisher's Description

Will you tell the world what God is doing?

Whether we do ministry in a faraway country or a nearby neighborhood, we experience the work that God is doing in lives of people around the world. Yet when we try to communicate those stories to our friends at home, we often fall flat.

How can we share what God is doing in a way that evokes the excitement He deserves?

To experienced journalists-turned-missionaries Jim Killam and Lincoln Brunner, the answer is straightforward: We need to be reporters gathering information responsibly and crafting stories of God’s goodness.

The next time you are challenged to answer the question: "What happened on your mission trip?" or even: "What is happening in your ministry?" . . . be prepared to answer well. Go Tell It will equip you to tell a compelling story that allows others to see God’s work in the world.

Author Bio

JIM KILLAM has been a journalist for more than 30 years -- including stints as a newspaper reporter and editor, a college media adviser, and a missionary journalist. Currently he is Story Director for the Seed Company, a Wycliffe affiliate. Jim and his wife, Lauren, live in Texas, though their Midwestern accents give them away quickly. They have three grown children and two grandchildren. Go Tell It is Jim's third book, and has led to training opportunities on three continents.

LINCOLN BRUNNER has been a journalist for 22 years. After cutting his teeth as a sportswriter and general assignment reporter in central Wisconsin in the early 90s, he went on to edit a small daily paper in Illinois. He then served as an editor for several trade magazines. In 2004, he felt a strong call to do full-time reporting about Christian missions work and went on to report on missionaries around the world for two different missions organizations. These days, he works as managing editor for a Bible translation organization. Lincoln and his wonderful wife, Ann, have three daughters and live in Texas.

    "God is working. So why aren't these stories being told?" ask authors Jim Killam and Lincoln Brunner in their new release, Go Tell It: How and Why to Report God's Stories in Words, Photos and Videos, published by Moody Publishers.

    "Missions stories should be energizing the church about the Great Commission," they add, saying that they believe a "revival will happen again as a worldwide audience learns of what God is doing."

    And with that, Killam and Brunner set out to show missionaries, both long- and short-term, how to publicize what God is doing through words, pictures and videos. In Go Tell It, Killam and Brunner cover things like: conducting interviews, observing security guidelines, storytelling techniques, photography and video equipment, composition basics, and more.

    Overall, the book is a great guide for missionaries from a non-journalism background, helping them navigate the basics of interviewing and writing stories, or telling stories through photos or video. The authors offer a wealth of valuable information that it could take novices years to learn, and yet it's all compiled into one neat volume. Because Killam and Brunner took care not to use too much technical jargon, the book is easy for any beginning missionary story-teller to understand.

    The authors end the book saying, "When we put ourselves out to report god's work skillfully, we do more than tell nice stories—we spread the gospel by glorifying God and putting Him on center stage." And that's exactly what this book does. It helps readers learn to tell God's story more effectively through the printed word as well as through photo and video.

    I highly recommend Go Tell It to anyone wanting to tell God's story, not just missionaries. If you want to spread the word about what God is doing, this book is a great tool.

    * Note: I received a copy of the book from the publisher for this review. However, the opinions expressed are my own.
