Two Book Briefs and an Update

Howdy Acceleraters!

We wanted to let you know that we’ve recently released two more book briefs:

1. Habits of Grace by David Mathis
and
2. In His Image by Jen Wilkin

You can find the rest of our book briefs at the Accelerate Library.

You’ll notice that we’ve changed the format of the book briefs on the website itself. For the time being, we’ve simply embedded the book brief PDFs onto the website itself. On mobile, you’ll also have the option to view it in full screen. Additionally, you may download all the briefs in PDF form, but we ask you not share these book briefs with others, unless we’ve given specific permission to you.

Keep in mind that this format is temporary as our developers work on our official website, the first version of which we will be releasing in the first week of September. Our goal is to make the book briefs easy to navigate and read, both on desktop and on mobile 🙂 We’re currently making good progress on the new website.

If you have suggestions on how we could improve the website, feel free to shoot us an email with your thoughts!

Some features that have been suggested (but don’t have an official release date) are:

  • Mobile App (iOS and Android)
  • User Dashboards displaying which book briefs you’ve already read
  • Recommending related book briefs at the end of the summary
  • Paypal payment option
  • Group rates for Church staff / teams

If you have any ideas, we’re open to hearing them!

Onward for the Gospel,

The Accelerate Team

P.S. – If you’re a typesetter or have a friend that is, give us a shout! (By typesetter we mean someone that’s creative and proficient at book formatting and layouts (usually Adobe InDesign), that would be interested in helping to create our PDFs).
