This past summer I had the chance to be a part of a live studio audience for the filming of a 6-week biblestudy. It was Tony Evans. So it was awesome.
I don’t know how well-known Dr. Evans is outside the Dallas-Fort Worth area, but he is hands down one of the greatest preachers of the turn of the century. It’s a long century with a long list of incredible preachers, and we’re just barely out of it, but I’d even be willing to say that Tony Evans is one of the greatest preachers of the 20th century.
Anyway… like I said, I had the privilege of being a part of his most recent series, The Power of God’s Names, which has just been released, and I cannot recommend it enough. In the trailer below, you’ll get a glimpse of Evans’s passion and energy; what is trickier to capture in a 59-second promo is the way Dr. Evans digs into the layers of the Bible, helps unpack it with fresh, down-to-earth metaphors, and you see things you hadn’t seen before.
Now, it might just be wishful thinking on my part, but I thought just maybe, there might be a few small group leaders out there among our regular readers. Maybe even a few ministers, pastors, Bible teachers… You can get the DVD Leader Kit cheaper here than on Amazon.
For those of you, like me, who don’t lead any such groups, and therefore don’t have church cash to spend on expensive leadership kits, the book is also available.
Check it out. If you like it, recommend it to your small group leader. You won’t regret it. (Until your small group leader asks you for more recommendations because this one was so great… better start doing your homework now…)
Oh! And if you see me in the audience, give me a shout out!!
