Overview

Back CoverBe the Change You Want to SeeIn the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.--Matthew 5:16Front FlapI believed Christ was the way, but yet I was lost. I believed He was the truth, but at the same time, I was deceived. I believed He was the life, but I knew not the Life. Then, by way of mercy, trial, tragedy, and grace, there was a sifting like that of wheat, and for the first time, I started again on this journey knowing that Christ must increase, and I must disappear.--Peter FurlerI think in the last couple of years there's been an awakening in the band to what really matters....I feel like I've become a new person, an absolutely new human being.--Phil JoelThe events of the last year or two have really shown me that it's one thing to have your ministry and the work that you are doing. For us, it's being the Newsboys and doing our thing there. But we really got a big wake-up call a little over a year ago....--Jody DavisI didn't learn what grace really meant until about two years ago, and it has changed my life dramatically. I think it scares a lot of people around me because, if anything, I may present myself as what a lot of people think of as less of a Christian, when really, I'm being more honest and transparent.--Jeff FrankensteinI believe that God is really doing something in the spiritual realm with this band, more so than He ever has done before....I've been a Christian for a long time, probably twenty years now, and you have your times of your mountaintop experiences, and then you have your other times that aren't quite so high. But I really feel that God is preparing me for something incredible, something exciting, and I think the rest of the band is feeling the same.--Duncan PhillipsBack FlapWhen you think of the Newsboys, do you think rock and roll, gold records, concerts, and fame? Shine: Make Them Wonder What You've Got reveals the Newsboys in a way you have never seen them before--not just as performers but as Christians. Follow them as they travel through seasons of personal and spiritual growth, undergoing struggles that are common to all believers, experiencing faith-stretching circumstances, and seeking to live for Christ in an authentic way. Their spiritual journeys reflect a deep and growing faith that permeates their music while also transcending it. This new path challenges the limitations we've put on Christianity in our postmodern culture and seeks the essence of the Gospel. Shine will challenge and stretch your own spiritual expectations as you discover the dynamics of a living faith.

    Want the people around you to change?

    Be the change you want to see. The theme of Shine is to be a light in a dark place. If you want to see a change in others- you must change first, and they will naturally follow. The Newsboys remind us that as Christians we reflect Christ's light. Just as the glow-in-the-dark book cover shines for a while in the darkness and must be re-charged to continue shining--so Christians must return to Christ, the source of their light, to be refreshed and renewed if they want to persevere and be the light in a dark world.
