Respect the Image (for Kids)
I believe a children’s edition of Respect the Image (for kids around 8-12) would serve families well. It would make a very good family devotions study, not to mention content for home school kids, Sunday School/Children’s ministry, and the like.
Windchasers and Worshipers: The Quest for Significance
The goal of Wind-Chasers and Worshipers: A Quest for Significance would be to present and contextualize Ecclesiastes in a way that responds directly to the seductive vanity of our world. Rooted in the ancient text, but full of vivid contemporary illustrations and discussion questions, the book would serve well to expose the cravings of each human heart, to address inclinations of various generations and cultures, and to give this and the next generation core biblical world-view answers to life’s biggest questions.
With chapter titles like Chasing the Wind, The Trouble with Whyning, In Search of the Eternal Buzz, Shark Tank Madness, Religioso Rigormortis, What Mirrors Won’t Tell, Echoes of Eternity, Mysterium Tremendum, Who’s the Boss?, and Glimpses of Eden, the book would appeal across generational lines and meet younger and older people alike, right at the places where their world may be tempting and/or their faith may be teetering.
A Communication Trilogy
I dream, too, of a trilogy about biblical communication principles that will show how to interact with one another, speak about beautiful and holy things, and relate across the racial lines that divide. If the Lord wills, each of these will equip people young and old to utilize ear and tongue for loving, respectful, and holy purposes. The first in the trilogy is already published (see above). The latter two are very much outlined in my mind and heart, and await God’s timing, if they prove to be his will.
