Flame on Writing a Book on The Red Letter Disciple

048: Flame on Writing a Book vs. Writing a Rap Song, How Extra Nos Changed His Life, and Why Deconstruction Can’t Have the Last Word

Flame is back with a brand new book on an age-old truth. His new book, Extra Nos, tells the story of how that phrase, meaning outside of us, changed him from the inside out. His mission is to share that message of grace through the written word or song.



Today’s episode is brought to you by Red Letter Living. Pastors and church leaders, we create 40-day challenges that have helped more than 1000 churches produce greater disciples.

Are you following Jesus? 

Many want to be greater followers of Jesus but don’t know how. We extensively studied everything Jesus commanded of us and located five key targets to which Jesus invited His followers. The five targets are Being, Forgiving, Serving, Giving, and Going.

In partnership with LifeWay Research, we created a Red Letter Challenge Assessment that will measure you according to these five targets. And the best news of all: it’s free! You will get results back immediately and be presented with the next steps to help you become an even greater follower of Jesus.

You can take the FREE Red Letter Challenge Assessment here.
