Comprehensive Study Guide & Online Teaching Videos Empower Engagement with Francis Chan’s Until Unity

David C Cook’s trio of resources invites small groups & churches to explore God’s heart for unity

Colorado Springs, CO (July 12, 2021) — David C Cook has released an all-new comprehensive study guide for Francis Chan’s latest bestselling book, Until Unity (April 2021). The Until Unity Study Guide (July 2021) contains Bible study questions, leader’s notes, and chapter-by-chapter insights. A complementary online video teaching series, featuring Francis Chan, rounds out David C Cook’s trio of resources focused on Biblical Christian unity.

The Until Unity Study Guide unpacks Francis Chan’s unique and life-changing exploration of why unity is not just God’s wish for His Church—it’s His command. “Scripture teaches that our influence on the world is directly tied to the unity we display,” writes Francis in the study guide. “It is my hope that everyone engaging with this message will see Christians worship a God who desires unity with His children and between His children.”

Chan’s ten teaching videos were created alongside the Until Unity trade book and study guide. The study guide’s chapters correspond with Chan’s teaching videos as he focuses on Christian unity:

  • “It’s What the Trinity Wants”
  • “It’s What You Want”
  • “It’s What the World Needs”
  • “It Starts with Repentance”
  • “It Comes with Maturity”
  • “It Survives with Love”
  • “It Requires a Fight”
  • “It Must Start Small”

The guide includes additional resources such as:

  • Chapter-by-chapter insights into Until Unity
  • Bible study questions for individuals or groups
  • Scripture passages and reflection questions
  • Tips for small group leadership and participation
  • Prompts for using Francis Chan’s companion online video teaching series

“Francis Chan is a catalyst for change within the Christian church,” says Michael Covington, Vice President, Publishing & Acquisitions, David C Cook. “This time he definitively explains why Christians cannot remain indifferent to the divisions in the Church today. The gospel-infused message of Until Unity is remarkable in its scope and impact.”

Earlier in 2021, Francis Chan was featured on numerous national media outlets as he introduced Until Unity. Media coverage included GMA3, The Dallas Morning News, Carey Nieuwhof’s Leadership Podcast, Jennie Allen’s Made For This Podcast, Annie F. Downs’ That Sounds Fun Podcast, Jamie Ivey’s The Happy Hour Podcast, and The Holy Post Podcast.

Francis Chan has been a pastor for over thirty years. He is a New York Times bestselling author of several best-selling books including Crazy Love and Letters to the Church. He and his wife, Lisa, have been married for nearly 30 years and co-authored You and Me Forever. Currently, Francis and his family split their time between ministry and church planting in Northern California and Asia.
