God's Grand Story
by James Wakefield, PhD

Telling God's Grand Story

You are invited. Please join me in a conversation. We didn’t start it. It has been going on for many thousands of years. It circles around some big ideas, posed here as questions: Is there any good news? What is it? How do we gospel people faithfully? Let’s focus this: How do we tell God’s Grand Story to our families, friends, neighbors, and even to those who care nothing for us at all or for God?
One goal of this website is to further this conversation. Let’s be respectful. But let’s also keep it real. A second goal is to ask for help. I’m moving forward in keeping my promise to write a book about telling God’s Grand Story. How can you help? I don’t want to do something this awesome alone. I need company, friends and critics who can speak the truth in love. Help me make this useful. Keep me from too many errors and idiosyncrasies. Join me in sharing good news with our world.

Third Draft of Chapter Two

Sorry for the long delay between posts, but so many things are happening!

We should have a third draft of Chapter Two posted by March 12. With your help, it is much improved over the first draft. I am very grateful for all of the comments and helpful suggestions. Many people are letting me post their comments (see the "Chapter 2 Comments" tab above), and I am hoping these will continue to stimulate good dialogue about telling God’s Grand Story to twenty-somethings, and early thirty-somethings, and all the other age-somethings as well.

The biggest change from the first draft of Chapter Two is with my dialogue partner "Joe." His questions have been much improved by your suggestions, stories, and heart-aches.

I am not planning to blog here during my trip to serve orphans in Viet Nam (March 14-31). I am traveling with COPI (www.childrenofpeace.org/) and I will be blogging about those experiences at www.goodshpeherdutah.com. Look under the "Missions" button on the left side of the webpage. Please pray for me. And thanks for being patient with my travel schedule.
