The rights of this book belong exclusively to The Fellowship Church. This means, proceeds directly benefit the church. Pastor Donnie Smith wrote The Nine book with the intention to be a resource for ministry.

“The Bible can be very intimidating—written over a period of 1,500 years by over 40 authors on three continents, containing over 1,000 chapters. ‘Where do I even begin? What is the overarching story? What are the main themes?’ [Smith] answers these looming questions. Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned Bible explorer, The Nine is a must-read to navigate the greatest book ever written.”
