Digital Missionary

Mark520.org is pleased to announce the forthcoming book by Anthony F. Russo:

Drawing inspiration from the man the Lord healed in Mark 5, who “went away and began to proclaim throughout the Decapolis how much Jesus had done for him. And everyone was amazed” (5:20).

A.W. Tozer wrote his classic, The Pursuit of God, on an overnight train but the technology did not exist to be able to publish it by the time the train arrived at its destination the next morning.

But in today’s world, you can.

It’s not just books. In only a matter of minutes you can setup a blog or launch a podcast. Those are just some of the incredible opportunites you and I have to use the power of media to follow in the footsteps of the man in Mark 5:20.

Even if you do not think of yourself as a writer, you are.” This simple truth sets the stage for Digital Missionary.

Anthony Russo calls every believer to be cognizant of the way in which they already transform their thoughts into written words – emails, social media posts, etc. – and then, to focus that process, that energy, into intentionally putting gospel truths into writing.

The point is simply this: use every available resource to propel the truths in your heart toward service to the King and His Kingdom. The resources have changed over time; the (Great) commission has not. 

Digital Missionary challenges believers to love God and love people with words, written and disseminated, that others might be drawn nearer to the Savior in worship and adoration.

In Digital Missionary, Anthony Russo motivates the reader in a practical and encouraging way about how to become involved with publishing to minister to people around the world. He practically explains the impact publications can have both now and into the long-term future. It is a helpful book about how to impact lives for Jesus.

My friend, Anthony Russo, once again has a book balanced by scripture and practice! A genuine read of the book will greatly inspire you to glorify God in your writing!

Johnny Touchet, Executive Director, Partner 10:15

“How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who publishes peace.” But what does it mean to publish peace?

That is one of the questions Anthony Russo seeks to answer in Digital Missionary, which may be the first entry into a much-needed “Theology of Publishing” for the 21st century Christian.

Skillfully applying the classic Protestant understanding of vocation to a variety of modern questions and situations that arise in our increasingly digital world, Russo presents an argument for why Christians ought to publish their perspectives far and wide.

If you have thoughts, a pulse, and want to glorify the Lord of the gospel, this book is well worth your time.

Here’s a book that checks three critical boxes for those who long to see Christ made known among the nations.

First, it’s challenging. God has put it within His people to respond to a challenge. We feel the weight and glory of William Carey’s challenge to expect great things from God and attempt to great things for God. Digital Missionary rings that bell.

Second, it’s motivating. In this book, Anthony Russo leaves no room for doubt in the hearts and minds of those who have any inkling that publishing Christ abroad through books, pamphlets, and other digital means is a prolific way that God has chosen to advance the gospel. I want to be part of that!

Third, it’s doable. There is no special talent required other than to say it the way you say it. Preach the word! Write it down! Send it forth! God will put it in front of those who need to hear it the way you say it for years and years to come.
