We have had such great feedback about our Audacious post. We’re so glad you all are excited to participate in the simulcast and get your hands on a book! We thought we’d provide some answers to a few of the Frequently Asked Questions. We hope this makes it a little less confusing for you!
What is Audacious?
Audacious is the newest book written by Beth Moore. She wrote it specifically thinking of YOU, the simulcast audience! Audacious is an exclusive pre-release for simulcast participants! This is the very first time we have had a book that was connected to the message of her simulcast. We are thrilled to offer participants the opportunity to gain exclusive access to the book before the public release.
What is Audacious about?
Thirty years in the making, Audacious is a deep dive into the message that has compelled Beth Moore to serve women around the globe. Glancing over the years of ministry behind her and strengthening her resolve to the call before her, she came to the realization that her vision for women was incomplete. It lacked something they were aching for. Something Jesus was longing for. Beth identifies that missing link by digging through Scripture, unearthing life experiences, and spotlighting a turning point with the capacity to infuse any life with holy passion and purpose. What was missing? Well, let’s just say, it’s audacious and it’s for all of us. And it’s the path to the life you were born to live.
Do I have to have the book in order to participate in the simulcast?
No, the book is completely optional! Audacious is a great way to continue personal reflection and discussion following the simulcast but is not required.
Can I read Audacious before the simulcast?
Beth wrote this book with simulcast participants in mind with the idea that it would be used as a follow up to her message on that day. The book is a great way to continue walking out the weekend’s theme through personal reflection or group discussion. While it is possible that some could receive their book before the event, we do not recommend spoiling the simulcast message by reading it beforehand!
I am coordinating the simulcast at my church, how do I order books for my church?
Special instructions for host churches have been posted on the host website. Please log-in for further instructions for host churches.
Will there be a video to promote the Audacious book?
Yes, a book trailer will be available and will also be shown during the simulcast. The trailer will be available early August.
I purchased a ticket to a church’s simulcast event. Will I be able to buy an Audacious book at the church?
First of all, we are so glad you are joining one of our local church hosts! There is something very special that happens when women join together from a community and unite churches!
To answer your question, some of our churches will have books available onsite. However, since the book is not required, some hosts may choose not to sell at their location. If books are not available at your location, or your host runs out of books, the host will share with how to place an order as a simulcast participant.

There is not a host location near me, so I purchased an individual simulcast. Can I purchase an Audacious book?
Yes. You may purchase a copy of Audacious through the host website.
We don’t have a host location near us, so my friends and I are watching together. Can we order an Audacious book?
Yes, whoever purchased the individual simulcasts for your group can purchase copies for your group through the host website.
Please note: Each small group should have purchased an individual simulcast for each woman viewing the simulcast.
I am attending the live event in Wichita. Will I be able to purchase an Audacious book? Can I get my book early?
Books will be sold on-site in Wichita for live event attendees. Instructions on where to purchase will be given on-site. You will not be able to purchase a book early, but that’s OK! The book is meant to “continue the conversation” after the simulcast has concluded.
Can I purchase the book in a Lifeway store or online before the event?
The book will not release to Lifeway Stores until after the simulcast. Some online retailers will sell the book as a pre-order, but they will not be shipped until it releases to the general public.
I don’t live in the United States, can I participate in the pre-release?
Unfortunately, only those in the United States and Canada can participate in the pre-release. The book (hardback & e-book) will release to the general public in mid to late October.
My friend wants an Audacious book but she can’t come to the simulcast. Can I buy her a book?
Audacious was written with simulcast participants in mind, and we think that’s pretty special! We know many of your friends and family will want to read Audacious, but we encourage you to tell them about it and encourage them to purchase when it releases in mid to late October.
My friend bought a ticket for the simulcast, but she had to cancel. Can I get her a book?
If you are attending the simulcast at a church location, ask your host how your friend can still purchase a copy of Audacious.
When will my book(s) ship?
Books will begin shipping August 1 and will continue shipping throughout September. The last date to place your order is September 30, 2015. To check the status of your order, you can call 866.713.3512.
How long is the book? Is it available in other languages?
Audacious contains twelve chapters and is 192 pages. It is not currently available in other languages, but we are planning for a Spanish release in 2016.
Is it hardback or paperback? Will there be an E-book version?
Audacious is a jacketed hardcover book. There will be an E-book version, but it will not be available until the book releases in mid to late October 2015.
Will there be an Audacious Bible study?
No, there will not be a Bible study associated with this book. However, we think this is a great book for group discussion and would be perfect for use while you are in between Bible studies!
Who can I talk to about ordering book(s)?
