Telling the whole story for the whole world

I need your prayers and encouragement. No, I am not falling apart (at least, as far as I know). Let me explain. I’ll be using this summer to complete my book titled, “Your 18 Year Factor: How your upbringing affected your life.” This is a huge project but I’ve already laid significant groundwork. 

After this project, I have another one I feel I must pursue and I am very excited about it. The working title for this project is currently, “Telling the whole story for the whole world.” A subtitle could be: “Making sense of  life in a confusing world.” I am concerned that too many believers have bits and pieces of understanding that are fragmented and lacking connection with the big picture. We need a much better vocabulary for articulating the whole story.

My work will be based on a series of messages I gave on the five point outline below. You’ve heard of the five points of Calvin? No, I am not audacious enough to claim the five points of Cornell, but I do believe we need a larger paradigm for connecting our thoughts. 

I’ve become increasingly persuaded of a need to provide believers with a more comprehensive picture of Christian worldview under these five headings. Using this outline, I hope to produce a working curriculum with a deeper and richer vocabulary for each subject and a better understanding of the connections. But we especially need more cutting edge perspective in each area with reflective interaction on prevailing cultural trends. I am aware of other works and there are some good ones. But each one I’ve looked at has passed over or failed to connect significant pieces of information — especially in light of prevailing waves of thought in the larger culture. 

Please pray for me as I develop this resource. I welcome your encouragement and thoughts. It can be daunting to produce such material in the midst of pastoral ministry. I may need to find a nice resort for research and writing! 

1. Creation: the original story

2. Corruption: the back story

3. Grace: the salvation story

4. Growth: the present story

5. Glory: the end-story
