Equipping God's People to Create Missional Culture

ViralHope is Now Available on Amazon

I’m excited to announce that ViralHope: Good News from the Urbs to the Burbs (and everything in between) is now available on Amazon. This week is the official launch week of ViralHope. We have already sold over 1,000 copies of ViralHope in pre-publication sales. So the book is off to a great start! I’m thankful to all the contributors from around the world, to Scot McKnight for writing the foreword, and all of those who made this book possible. Read the acknowledgment section of the book for more details.

I hope that you will buy the book today and help spread the hope that the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ makes possible.  This book is a great encouragement for Christ followers as well as a meaningful book to give to seekers. If you want to buy the book in bulk at a discount, then order it at the Ecclesia Press website. Here are what some people are saying about ViralHope:

ViralHope is a refreshing book for a church that needs to be refreshed.  JR Woodward, like a symphony conductor, brings together dozens of distinct voices that sing into harmony the sweet voice of hope in both the urban centers and suburban crawl.”
– Andrew Jones, The Boaz Project (tallskinnykiwi.com)

ViralHope inspires me to live more of the kingdom now.”
– Kelly Monroe Kullberg, Author of Finding God at Harvard and Finding God Beyond Harvard (FindingGodAt.org)

ViralHope is a unique and enticing collection of postcards from a veritable who’s who of the missional church from across the Western world.  It provides us with articulate and varied perspectives on how missionaries to the West are conceiving the good news in and for their varied contexts.  A worthy read.”
– Alan Hirsch, Author of The Shaping of Things to Come and The Forgotten Ways (theforgottenways.org)

ViralHope is a bold call to reject any and all reductions of the Gospel that minimize it to ‘cosmic fire insurance’ on the one hand or, on the other, reduce it to ‘social action’. This is a full Gospel and a vision that our world desperately needs to hear.”
Jim Belcher, Author of Deep Church (thedeepchurch.com)

“What a delight to read these posts from people on the ground working out the Gospel in their cities and ‘burbs’ in ordinary, everyday life. This is the kind of down-to-earth reporting we need right now. I will definitely be using this little gem for my work.”
– Alan Roxburgh, Author of The Missional Leader and Introducing the Missional Church (roxburghmissionalnet.com)

“The many-sided nature of the gospel is brilliantly displayed in ViralHope. Read it and think about how you would tell the story of hope where you live.”
– John R. Franke, Clemen Professor of Missional Theology at Biblical Seminary and Author of Manifold Witness: The Plurality of Truth (johnrfranke.com)

“There has been a lot of talk the last decade about ‘the kingdom of God’ and being ‘missional.’ Going beyond mere explanation, ViralHope shows you what these terms mean. In fifty wonderful snapshots, ViralHope demonstrates that in many places and times the decade of talk has produced mature reflection and bountiful fruit.”
– Todd Hunter, Author of Giving Church Another Chance (toddhunter.org)

“This book so deeply encourages me because it reminds me, you, us, and the rest of the world that no one monopolizes or owns the Gospel but rather the Gospel owns… and liberates us.”
– Eugene Cho, Pastor and Blogger; Founder of One Day’s Wages (eugenecho.wordpress.com)

“ViralHope takes the Good News and places it within a wide variety of contexts as it is lived out by those who are seeking to embody the hope of the Gospel.”
– Eddie Gibbs, Senior Professor at Fuller Theological Seminary and Author of books like ChurchMorph and ChurchNext (blog.fuller.edu/churchthenandnow)

    Are you going to do an electronic copy? I’d definitely consider getting it if so. I’m currently an M in south africa so have very very limited access to get hard copies unfortunately…
