The Publishing Story: Christ Rhythms
Jonathan Brooks, pastor of Restoration Church Bryan in Bryan, Texas, approached us with doing a rendition of a previously published book. For this new version, Jonathan wanted us to copyedit the manuscript and fully design the new cover and interior.
During the editing process, Jonathan worked with the editors on coming up with a new name for his book and settled on Christ Rhythms: A Jumpstart Guide to Life in Christ. This captured the theme of giving new disciples the knowledge they need for jumpstarting their relationship with Christ.

So we helped them with:
- Total project management
- Copyediting and proofreading
- Cover design (front, back, and spine)
- Interior design and typesetting
- eBook formatting
The result was an eye-catching cover and interior design with concise editing to preserve the author’s informal tone.
We appreciated the book’s down-to-earth tone in explaining theological and discipleship concepts. We know this book will further the kingdom in training future disciples of Jesus.
And we’re thankful for Jonathan’s kind endorsement: “Working with YouPublish to self-publish my book was fantastic. There was a relational component that made working with them easy and pleasurable. They moved the project along at a great pace, and the final product was attractive and professional. Highly recommend!”
More About the Book
From the back cover.
SOMETIMES YOU JUST NEED A JUMPSTART
Jesus gave a clear command in Matthew 28 to make disciples of all nations, and few would argue the importance of God’s call for Christians to follow Jesus and to make disciples. But how does one start the discipleship process? Unfortunately, many churches in America don’t define discipleship clearly, and many Christians don’t even know where to start!
In Christ Rhythms, Jonathan Brooks provides the church a one-on-one discipleship “primer” to help mobilize seasoned believers to be disciple-makers, and he also provides a fantastic jumpstart for new believers in their journey with Christ.
Simple, practical, conversational—Christ Rhythms is about a one-on-one connection versus a classroom.
