Publisher's Description

Great stories are happening everywhere in the mission field and around the world. Sometimes these stories hit their mark, but more often than not these stories of God at work often stay hidden, are told ineffectively, or miss their audience completely.

This one-of-a-kind handbook from two journalists-turned-missionaries gives practical tips for the rest of us on how to "report" on what God is doing around the world. You don't need an expensive camera or an all-access pass to find and tell a great story. You just need a few trade secrets and the right questions to ask: "What is God up to? How can I get in on it?" The authors write with a special eye on and for the Christian missions world to help bloggers, missionaries, and world-travelers effectively report stories of God's work around the globe. From fundraising to newsletters to "Missions Sunday" presentations and everywhere in between, this book will help energize the Church for the Great Commission. Like the gospel writer Luke (a reporter in the Bible!), we need to give careful, detailed, credible accounts of what God is doing. And let His work speak for itself!

"The idea of journalists training missionaries to be storytellers is unique and can change the face of missions. Great stories engage people and can energize the church to more impassioned prayer and even more sending and going. I applaud Jim and Lincoln's work." - Jerry B. Jenkins

    "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.
