Where is the life God promised us?

Life is busy.  We live like slaves to our fast-paced, suffocating schedules.  We spend our energy and time in triviality, relegating God to the background.  He seems distant to us, and we resist the idea that God wants to give, say, and show us more; we dismiss it as rumor.  But Jesus calls us to a better way.  Another dream- an unimagined future.  Close the gap between what you hear about and what you see.

Rumors is filled with the same forward-thinking spirit that defines its authors, Jon Tyson and Darren Whitehead. ―Louie Giglio, pastor, Passion City Church

Both challenging and encouraging, Rumors of God will reintroduce you to a God worth talking about. ―Gabe Lyons, author, The Next Christians, founder, Q, coauthor, UnChristian

This book invites us to find the rumors of God all around us.  Read it, but be ready to be changed. ―Scot McKnight, author, One.Life: Jesus Calls, We Follow and Jesus Creed for Students

For those who are jaded by the church, or have become cynical about the power of the Gospel in our time, Rumors of God is a great antidote. ―Alan Hirsch, author, dreamer, activist (www.theforgottenways.org)

Foreword by Bill Hybels, founding and senior pastor of Willow Creek Community Church in South Barrington, Ill., and chairman of the board for the Willow Creek Association.

 The irony: two upstart Aussies from tiny towns half a world away wind up leading high impact churches in two of the most significant cities in North America.  Only God.

Darren Whitehead and Jon Tyson are deep thinking Christ followers with a bias for action in the world.  A rare combination these days.  They are both leaders and communicators, visionaries and "get stuff done for God" guys.  Extremely rare.

I have had the privilege of working closely with Darren at Willow Creek Community Church for over 7 years.  He is thoughtful, relationally intelligent and one of the hardest working young leaders I know.

In Rumors of God, Darren and Jon have some how succeeded in slipping 3D glasses over our eyes.  The results are that passages from scripture come alive in ways that will impact readers for a long time.

 I salute the efforts of these young mates and pray that readers will be as stretched in their minds and hearts as I have been.
