NOT JUST A BOOK – IT’S JUST THE BEGINNING (TRANSCRIPT)

Video Transcript

The new year is just around the corner. Before you know it, the ball will drop, resolutions will be made, and the story of this year will be concluded.

But what if before the year’s ends, you had a chance to do something simple yet significant? A chance to do something this year, that would make an impact in the new year.

This is your chance to join the effort to provide copies of More Than a Carpenter to eager readers worldwide.

More Than a Carpenter was born when it was first published 36 years ago. That’s the same length of time as 9 presidential terms.

48 is the number of hours it took Josh to write the original copy. The words were scrawled onto 12 legal pads, or about 600 pages, which is an average of 4.8 minutes a page.

Over the years, the book has traveled the globe and has been distributed in 150 countries and translated into over a 100 languages. Today there are 27,000,000 copies in print worldwide— and by the best estimates most of these books are read by not one person, but seven. And those who read it are forced to make a decision about WHO Jesus is—just as Josh McDowell did years ago as a young skeptic.  Many readers make a decision to place their trust in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.  And THAT’s why this isn’t JUST a book.

The stage is set for something great as our ministry partners in 40 countries have requested 1,542,040 copies to be used in their outreach this year.

To put that in perspective, that’s like the entire population of Philadelphia called us saying, “We want to read this book that helps us understand Jesus but we don’t have it. Will you send us copies?”

So as the year comes to a close, you have a chance to join this story.  For every $3.25 contributed, one of these books is distributed in a foreign country.  Will you join us in a cause that has an eternal purpose?  Because this isn’t just a book – it’s just the beginning.
