Bible Gateway Interviews Bill Purvis on Make a Break for It

Bill Purvis had to be at death’s door before he discovered that everything he was searching for could be found in Jesus Christ. As a teenager, he nearly died when he was stabbed three times by a pimp during an encounter with a prostitute. With his pericardium sac pierced, liver punctured, and jugular vein completely severed, he cried out to Jesus, who miraculously saved his life. In the more than 30 years since that day, he’s become a pastor, leader, and mentor to many. Bible Gateway interviewed Bill Purvis about his book, Make a Break for It: Unleashing the Power of Personal and Spiritual Growth (Zondervan, 2016). Read this interview.

The Story is helping people experience Scripture like never before. Carefully selected verses from the Bible are organized chronologically.

Churches and small groups have seen enhanced comprehension of the Bible, new found confidence to share the Word, unified community, and naturally increased community outreach by using The Story. Bible Gateway interviewed Shelley Leith, national church coach for The Story (Zondervan, 2011). Read this interview.
