Josh: Share Jesus through More Than a Carpenter


Mia from Estonia went to church for the first time with her friends. She started attending a weekly discussion group to learn more about Jesus. But Mia still had questions. So, someone on church staff gave her a copy of More Than a Carpenter.

"When I read Josh's testimony about growing up with an alcoholic father, I was able to relate right away," says Mia. "I could finally read the name God without it scaring me. I had always thought God must be the same as my earthly father. But as I read More Than a Carpenter, I finally understood God's love for me. I knew that it was time to know God in my heart!"

Stories like Mia's remind me why I wrote More Than a Carpenter, and why your support is so crucial to sharing truth with young people. God has been faithful to use this book - and your generosity - to reach millions of people with the power and love of Jesus.

We need your help to raise $108,000 by JUNE 30th to fulfill requests for 79,400 copies of More Than a Carpenter so that more people like Mia can have a breakthrough moment with Jesus through this powerful book.

In our years of ministry, we've found that on average each copy of More Than a Carpenter (as it's shared and passed around to family and friends) reaches 10 people with the truth about Jesus!
