Not sure if Accelerate is for you?



If you’re a pastor, a church leader, a teacher, a busy parent, or a student, then you already know that leaders are readers. However, you still might not be convinced that Accelerate will help you or your team.


No sweat. Our goal is to serve you, so let us know if any these questions sound familiar:


  • Do you struggle to grow as a leader with your limited time?

  • Ever feel pressured or guilty about not reading enough?

  • Is your unending list of “books to read” starting to overwhelm you?

  • Wish you had time to branch out and read more widely?

  • Looking for a way to quickly identify the key ideas of a book?

  • Want fresh, weekly insights for sermon prep, bible study, or family devos?

  • Ever spent money on books, only to discover they weren’t what you expected?

  • Do you wish there was a way to know exactly which books to invest in?

“The book briefs are concise and represent all the best points of great books that I desire to read. I could spend five minutes a day reading the briefs and come away with a great understanding of a new book. To me, this is amazing!”

Why join Accelerate?

If you found yourself nodding to any of the questions above, you’re not alone.

We took a survey and discovered that our members joined because Accelerate helps them…

1. Maximize Their Time
Our book summaries save time by providing key insights and applications. While these insights are stirring enough for some, many use the book summaries to decide whether to invest more fully by purchasing the book.
2. Save Their Money
With EIGHT new book summaries each month (in addition to the library), members save money and can make better book-buying decisions. With each Accelerate Book Brief valued at $5, members receive $40 worth of insights each month.
3. Expand Their Learning
Pastors and church leaders use Accelerate to supplement their sermon preparation or bible discussions. Others use Accelerate to read more widely and stay in the know with the latest books.
4. Retain Key Insights
We frequently receive feedback appreciating how the book summaries are brief enough to capture the insights, yet rich enough to capture the essence. Many use the book summaries as quick and helpful refreshers on previous books.
5. Fuel Their Souls
Book summaries also provide thought-provoking application questions that can be used for personal or group reflection. Application questions are designed to help readers remember a book’s content.
6. Empower Other People
In addition to having material to teach and discuss at group meetings (or even going through them together with a Group Plan), members use the book summaries to give informed book recommendations to friends and family.

“I was skeptical about the benefits of Accelerate. Would they be worth paying for? I honestly couldn’t imagine they would. So I checked it out and was blown away.”

What makes Accelerate different?



What makes Accelerate distinct from other book summary programs? There are TWO principles that shape our book summaries and make this program unique:

#1: The Insight Principle
 

Books don’t change people, paragraphs do and sometimes sentences. They may lodge themselves so powerfully in our mind that its effect is enormous when all else is forgotten.” – John Piper

Accelerate identifies these paragraphs and sentences. While may forget a book’s page numbers,  you’ll never forget its’ worldview-shaping insights, found in these sentences. After spending hours analyzing a book, our team extracts the key insights and then strategically presents them in a way that is easy to grasp. More than summarizing books chapter-by-chapter, we focus on maximizing reader comprehension and retention.

#2:
The 20% Principle

80% of a book’s main insights are found in 20% of the pages. So without apology, I ransack books for what I can get in the little time I have in this season of life.” – David Mathis

Accelerate book summaries give you access to this 20%. By having access to this 20%, you can quickly grasp a book’s main ideas, decide whether to explore further, and focus on application.

#2: The 20% Principle

80% of a book’s main insights are found in 20% of the pages. So without apology, I ransack books for what I can get in the little time I have in this season of life.” – David Mathis

Accelerate book summaries give you access to this 20%. While most of a book’s pages exist to illustrate and solidify a handful of main ideas, these main ideas reside within 20% of the pages. Having access to this 20% through Accelerate book summaries, you can quickly grasp a book’s main ideas, decide whether or not explore further, and focus on implementing the insights..


Is Accelerate Really Worth My Investment?


Valid question. But answer this first:

How much time might inefficient reading be costing you? How many hours have you invested in a book that you probably could’ve grasped in 30 minutes?


With access to eight Book Briefs every month, Accelerate members can save 432 hours a year.

Okay, stick with us here.

If an average non-fiction book takes an average of 5 hours to finish, that’s 40 hours to read eight books a month. That’s 480 hours if you kept that up every month of the year.

On the other hand, an Accelerate book summary takes about 30 minutes to read. This means it’d take approximately 4 hours to read all eight monthly book summaries. And only 48 hours for the year.

With Accelerate, that’s 432 hours you would be saving.

Put another way, reading without Accelerate could be costing you 432 hours every year.

This is your chance to make the decision to invest into your ministry. Don’t miss it:

Is it Worth the Investment?

Valid question.
But answer this first

How much time might inefficient reading be costing you?

Because NOT using Accelerate could be costing you 432 hours a year.

Okay, stick with us here.

The average non-fiction book takes 5 hours to read.
That means 8 books / month would take 40 hours.
And if you kept it up all year: 480 hours.

Our book summaries take 30 minutes to read.
Reading all 8 monthly summaries would take 4 hours.
And for the year? Only 48 hours.

With Accelerate, you’d save 432 hours per year

Put another way, not using Accelerate could be costing you 432 hours every year.
