The Bible Blossom was created to equip believers to tell the Story of God in Jesus Christ. It is a visual bible for the millions of believers whose cultures are oral and story-oriented (which is the case with virtually everyone in poverty). Dozens of beautiful images are assembled in a way that links the stories of the Bible together. The whole story is connected to show that the Gospel of Christ and his Kingdom is the cord binding all of Scripture together. We have also created a Storyteller’s Handbook keyed to The Bible Blossom that orients storytellers to the settings, characters, themes, and plots connected with the images.

TUMI Resource: Ripe for Harvest


For more than forty years, World Impact has been dedicated to honoring and glorifying God and delighting in him among the unchurched urban poor by knowing him and making him known. Our vision is to recruit, empower, and release urban leaders who will plant churches and launch indigenous church planting movements. Our Evangel School of Urban Church Planting trains church planters to plant healthy churches among the city’s poor, applying biblical wisdom in order to effectively evangelize, equip, and empower unreached city folk to respond to the love of Christ, and take their place in representing Christ’s Kingdom where they live and work. This guidebook, the official text of the Evangel School, outlines a process of church planting that respects the unique cultures, environments, communities, and situations reflected in urban America. The PLANT approach outlined here provides practically wise and spiritually vital instruction to ensure that urban church planting teams will neither fail nor blunder as they seek to engage needy yet spiritually ripe unreached neighborhoods. Filled with devotionals, seminars, exercises, and worksheets, with dozens of graphics, diagrams, and articles, this rich resource will empower church planting teams to design a strategy consistent with the vision God has given them – the kind of strategy that results in the creation of healthy, Kingdom-declaring churches, and the launch of reproducing church planting movements. Use this handy manual to engage your community with creativity and wisdom, planting the church God called you to plant. Come, join us, as we seek to plant as many healthy, Christ-honoring churches as we can among the lost and the least in the cities of the world!

Our 2018-19 Sacred Roots Annual is entitled The Gospel and the Harvest (cf. Matt. 9.35-38). Its cover displays the vast, ripe harvest contrasted with the few workers gathering it in. During Ordinary Time we will study premiere texts explaining the Good News of hope, and the Church’s challenge to share that with the world. Come, join us as we feast on the truths of the Gospel and the harvest, the message of life given to us all.

TUMI Resource: Get Your Pretense On!

Some years ago, the apologist C. S. Lewis challenged disciples of Jesus in his classic little Christian primer, Mere Christianity, to live true to their new identities as children of God. The chapter was entitled “Let’s Pretend.” Building on that important motif, Don Davis issues a similar call to Christ followers today to “Get Your Pretense On!” He calls every believer in Christ to both understand and embrace their true identities as both citizens and ambassadors of the Kingdom of God. This book outlines a biblical and doctrinal perspective designed to help you know what it means to act worthy of your true, redeemed status and position, and to make a difference in the roles where Jesus has placed you. Take your place as a Kingdom citizen and ambassador, and represent the King with honor in your unique circle of relationships!

Coming in May: Capstone Appendices

In this collection of graphs and diagrams, Dr. Davis offers an insightful collection of pictures to help the Bible and theology student to probe the meaning of many difficult concepts of Scripture.  He says in the Introduction, “Although a graphic may sometimes be offered as a poor substitute for clear reasoning about an idea or concept, good metaphors, diagrams, or symbols can often be just the tool to help us grasp some mystery with better comprehension. . . . The prophets and apostles often used visual pictures and metaphors to help God’s people understand God’s analysis of a situation, or lean into the meaning of some mystery or concept God was communicating with them.” 

This current collection contains dozens of graphics on a variety of biblical and theological themes, all designed to help you better grasp the meaning of the mysteries of the Scriptures.  This is a perfect tool for those who teach or preach, or those students of the Bible who desire to see God’s word explained and better understood through pictures, graphs, tables, and metaphors.

What does the biblical Story of God's love in Christ have in common with comic book tales, hero journeys, or fairy tales? In this Story, all who believe that Jesus is the Christ can be transformed from frogs to princes and princesses, through the power of the Spirit and faith in the Gospel. In a world that is dizzy through dozens of contradictory, competing stories, we who believe must now rediscover the Story of God in Christ as the final story of all things, the center of our lives, and the heart of our mission.  Click the image above to find out more!

TUMI Resource: Let God Arise! Prayer Guide

A Sober Call to Prevailing Prayer
We make a sober call to all believers who love the Lord Jesus and the cities of America to join us in forming new movements of prayer for the city, for all those who live in them, especially God’s people. By all accounts, the inner cities of America represent one of the most difficult fields for Gospel ministry on earth. Filled with a spirit of longing and humility, we must earnestly seek the Lord’s face in intercession, and do so strategically, in an organized and effective manner. Join us and the thousands of others who are interceding for the cities of the world!

Did you know that TUMI Resources are mulit-lingual, in addition to being mulit-cultural?  We have our Fight the Good Fight of Faith resource available in 14 languages at our TUMI Entree online store.  Here's the description of Fight the Good Fight of Faith:

"This practical, helpful resource is specially designed to help new and growing Christians become effective disciples/warriors of Christ, and is built entirely on the Story of God as told in the Scriptures. Following the thematic outline of Ephesians, this lesson guide helps believers understand what the Bible says about the key dimensions of our participation in God’s grand Story in nine integrated lessons. These studies lay out the key elements in how we fulfill our role in God’s Story, allowing students to grow as disciples of Christ as they are grounded in the basics of the Christian faith and walk. This resource serves as our official precursor to TUMI’s Capstone Curriculum seminary training, providing a solid introduction to the Bible’s major themes as well as the foundational principles of Christian discipleship."
