Story Behind the Book
In an effort to focus Multnomahs mission to equip the church and to make the "bride" more beautiful, the company developed a relationship with Andy Stanley and North Point Community Church to publish a selection of the churchs resources and distribute them to a broader market. North Point is one of the most influential churches in the nation, and their teaching is already highly sought after. They have a voice for the 20- to 30-something generation. Reaching the church is a strategic goal of Multnomah, and we realize that the emerging generation needs resources that deliver truth in fresh, new ways. Andys leadership will keep North Point on the edge for a long time to come.
