I have wondered over the last few years if WDA should publish our Guided Discussions as a ebook. Could we actually deliver a meaningful experience for our customers who might not want to carry a book to their group.
One younger leader mentioned that he was excited about the new workbooks we publish for Cornerstone but after looking at the format said, “when are you going to create a ebook version. None of the people I work with will bring a book to small group but all of them have their iPhone®.”
I was also talking to a friend who is creating curriculum for church leaders in Africa, and as we talked he mentioned that there are many challenges to creating and publishing materials for their ministry partners. Our International staff has taken digital pdf books or even hard copies of materials to people by hand.
As you can see printing materials in many countries is very challenging. Not only is it a challenge it can be costly.
Because WDA’s mission is to serve the church worldwide, we are always looking for new ways to deliver our materials and training to as many people as possible. I think ebooks is a good option for some people! So what do you think?
Just this week we published all the books that are part of “Cornerstone” in a Kindle format. You can now get Getting Started, Knowing God, Understanding People and Growing Spiritually to use on your device.
At this point we are offering them for Kindle, which can be also used on other devices that use the Kindle app as well.
They are available now on Smile.Amazon.com. There are both student and leaders editions available for you and your church to use.
If you want to know more about these books, please visit our WDA store, and read about them.
You can then follow the link to the smile.amazon.com website, where by buying with Smile.amazon, Amazon will give a portion of your ebook purchase to WDA as a charitable gift at no cost to you!
We hope you like the Cornerstone books in the Kindle format. We are also working on versions for epub/ibooks. Please contact us if you desire those formats as well.
