Your First Christian E-Book in Writing

I discussed how to write from God’s inspiration as a Christian writer in an earlier article I wrote titled “The Art of Christian writing.” As a Christian author, the content of your Christian ebook won’t differ significantly from that of your other writing projects. As a Christian author, you must continue to write from a spirit and soul that are filled with inspiration from God.

Excellent nonreligious articles on how to write your first ebook abound. Blue and purple Some people may advise you to conduct research to determine what is “hot” or selling on the internet market before writing about it. Ideally, the subject would be related to your line of work. Some people might advise you to use article writing to advertise your website and product(s) without being overtly so in your ebook. Despite this, many authors simply write very subpar ebooks that are nothing more than pages of promotional content for their services and websites, offering the reader nothing of real value in the way of information. Even if the ebook is a free, give-away gift to advertise a website or business product, I agree that it should be content-rich and provide valuable information for the reader. Ebooks are a powerful tool for marketing an internet business or other businesses (s).

In choosing what ebook topic to write about, Christian authors are not to be solely motivated by financial gain. I think our primary role as “Ghost” writers for God is as instruments of His Holy Spirit, who resides within us. Therefore, we must first pray and ask God to give us the inspiration to write about a subject He wants us to. You see, the amazing thing about being a Christian author is that, when God moves you to write about a certain subject, you can be sure that a lot of people will benefit from your insights. You might be motivated to write about how to choose the best ebook creation software for Christian authors, for instance. You might be surprised by how many Christian authors find it difficult to comprehend and choose the right software to use when writing and publishing their ebooks. You might be motivated to write about picking a reputable web host. You might later find out that many Christian authors are confused when trying to choose the company that offers the best and most suitable package for their desired website due to the abundance of website hosting companies available. Christian authors receive direction from God regarding what to write and how to write it. Therefore, never assume that this aspect of Christian writing is true. Do some research to support your work once you have a clear idea of the ebook you intend to write.

Feel free to start writing using any word processing programme when your inspiration is at its peak and you are overflowing with ideas to put on paper. In the future, you can always copy and paste your writing into an application that creates ebooks, or you can quickly convert your document into a straightforward pdf file. Please be aware that some people write directly into an ebook creation programme. Personally, I find it more convenient to write and save my initial ebook content in a word processing programme, then transfer that content when I need to create an actual ebook. You would only need to convert a word processing document into a pdf file format in the case of an ebook.

Here is a concise writing strategy I recommend you use as you start your first Christian ebook writing project:

  1. You need to start by thinking critically. Whom are you trying to reach? Is everyone affected, or just Christians? If the answer is “everyone,” you must choose how to communicate the biblical information so that many people will understand it. You would need to produce what I refer to as “crossover” Christian writing, to put it briefly. Because it contains appealing universal truths that everyone can relate to, this type of writing is appealing to both Christians and non-Christians. For instance, “Understanding your life’s purpose,” “Christian coping mechanisms for daily stress,” etc. You must, however, only write what God has given you the inspiration to write.
  2. Based on a Biblical theme, create an outline for the Christian topic you have chosen to write about. Make a decision regarding whether you want to write a brief Christian ebook or a lengthy book. I advise you to decide on the length later after considering what the Christian ebook is supposed to achieve. A Christian ebook meant for teaching, for instance, might be longer than one meant for evangelism.
  3. Divide your outline for your Christian book into logical chapters. This could be a one-sentence summary of each chapter in your ebook, chapter by chapter. This is essentially a chapter-by-chapter summary.
  4. Begin with a brief introduction. Why are you writing on this particular subject? Existing issues that people are having—whether they be in the world at large or the Christian community—need to be addressed in your writing? Additionally, be prepared to address the problems identified with Bible-centered strategies or solutions, but avoid coming across as judgmental.
  5. With your Christian writing, specifically your ebook, what do you hope to accomplish? Is it a tool for preaching, teaching, or evangelization? Is the writing inspirational or motivational? What age range and gender do you want to reach? Is your ebook intended for adults, children, or both? Keep in mind that you are aiming for subgroups within a larger audience of Christian and non-Christian readers, as well as perhaps new people who have recently been motivated to read ebooks and books in general.
  6. Concentrate now on the primary subject of your Christian ebook, which is your main writing focus. Write what’s on your mind. When you write, imagine that you are sitting next to someone you genuinely care about and whose interests you are thinking about. So, use the motivational words that God has given you to express yourself in your writing. Write an electrifying message and use God’s mighty words to address the topic of your writing, offering both immediate and long-term Bible-based solutions to the issues. Editing your writing is not a priority right now. Just write. Later, you’ll concentrate on the editing component.
  7. Ensure that you clearly identify specific issues, discuss them, and offer solutions or guidance based on God’s Holy Word as you write on the main focus, which is the core of your writing. Avoid writing in such a way that it reads as if you lack expertise in the subject matter or are superficial about it.
  8. Write concisely, simply, and clearly. Please keep your points simple and direct, and try to bullet them whenever you can. Keep in mind that people seeking information don’t want to be forced to read dense prose in which it is difficult to understand the main points.
  9. Whenever you can, use concrete, everyday examples to support your arguments.
  10. Avoid making generalisations because some people might find them offensive.
  11. Avoid sounding overly preachy when writing a “crossover” Christian ebook or you risk losing your readership. Instead, use examples from real-world situations that your audience can relate to to present and illustrate God’s Holy Word. For instance, you can give the story of a mountain climber who was stranded on a snowy mountain in Switzerland and prayed for a miracle and received one; after praying, a rescue helicopter that had flown past several times but had missed him finally spotted him.
  12. Compose your summary or conclusion. Instead of restating what you’ve already said, this should be succinct and clear. You can also use this opportunity to pose a query related to the Christian subject you are writing about. Something to ponder for your reader, or perhaps a hook to pique their interest in reading your upcoming Christian ebook.
  13. Once you have finished editing and polishing your ebook content, which is still in word processing format, you can produce or create it by simply copying and pasting your writing into the ebook format of your choice. Excellent articles on various ebook formats and ebook cover creator programmes are abundant online. I’ll be publishing a new article soon titled “Christian Writers’ Favorite eBook Format.”

Remember that your first Christian ebook might serve as the start of a wonderful Christian ministry for you. Your first Christian ebook might be the first in a long line of books you’ll write, a web store selling Christian ebooks, or a teaching, preaching, and evangelism ministry that could have a profound impact on the lives of millions of people all over the world. The proverb “a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step” comes to mind. Prepare yourself, take action, and begin writing your first Christian ebook.
