Q Ideas Book Tour

Go Deeper With Your Favorite Authors on Q Media.

Each month in 2021, we’re inviting YOU to unite with the Q Ideas Community for a chance to read and discover new ideas together through Q Ideas Book Tour.

Q Ideas Book Tour brings your favorite authors—and maybe even some you haven’t heard of yet—directly to you for bonus content + extended conversations centered around their latest work.

What Is Q Media?
Q Media is a subscription-based streaming platform that equips Christians to lead faithfully wherever they’ve been called. In 2007, Gabe and Rebekah Lyons founded Q Ideas to be a platform to help leaders and influencers engage culture from a biblical worldview. Described as “sophisticated and orthodox” by The New York Times, through live events and digital content on Q Media, we curate the best thinking to help you faithfully and thoughtfully navigate our current cultural moment.

Is the cost of the books included?
No, the cost of the books is not included. Please feel free to buy each book from your favorite bookseller, and join us on Q Media each month for the exclusive bonus content.

What content can I expect to see as part of the Q Ideas Book Tour?
Each month, we’ll bring you exclusive bonus content to go along with each book, including a 9-minute Q Talk from the author, a podcast interview featuring the author and Gabe Lyons, and a live Q&A.

Do I have to start a subscription to Q Media?
Yes, a subscription is required to access the monthly bonus content we provide as part of the Q Ideas Book Tour. However, you can start with a 30-day free trial and cancel at any time.

How do I cancel my subscription?
You can cancel your subscription at any time by visiting the “Account Settings” tab on Q Media or contacting our team at [email protected]

Is Q Ideas or Q Media connected to QAnon?
The “Q” in our name stands for questions, and it comes from the belief that an informed, winsome and theologically faithful approach starts with Christians who seek to understand, learn and grow. Unfortunately, the letter Q has recently become associated with a conspiracy theory and political movement in which we have no affiliation. We existed many years before QAnon and our work will continue well beyond it.
