When you, as a minister, write-to-publish books, you can reach out far beyond the walls of your church with the Gospel message, and deep into the heart of the world. With today’s Internet and communication resources – including online ebooks – you can reach places in the world once considered closed to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
As you already know, the world is a hurting place, and people need instruction, wisdom, encouragement, and hope. As a minister, you have the answers for the world’s hurting and confused people. Not only can your book help a person now, but the written word has lasting power, leaving a legacy that will continue bearing rich fruit long after your time on earth has passed.
Advantages from your position
As a minister, you have definite advantages over other writers. You’ve already been called to share the Gospel with others, and have made the lifelong commitment to Christ and to His ministry. Spreading the Gospel through the written word is simply a natural progression of your church ministry.
You also have your finger on the pulse of today’s men, women, youth, and children. Counseling hurting people in your congregation is, no doubt, part of your everyday ministry. You know firsthand how people today are hurting – their “felt needs.” Read the rest at Christian Index.
