Living Proof: Sharing the Gospel Naturally Reviews
For personal level evangelism I don't think it gets better. I took my time reading it and enjoyed the fact that it did more than just make me think, it made me re-evaluate every preconceived notion I've had about evangelism. The author admits in the end that the book raises many questions, but they are all on related subjects, the topic this book set out to address was thoroughly done and didn't leave me scratching my head and reaching for another book to supplement the lack. I appreciated the tips for application, there was even an appendix included in the back as an outline for a study. A very practical book. I grew a little concerned reading it though, wondering if laypeople in the Churches across America would dare to lift a finger. But I was also hopeful, just imagine what an impact could be made if everyone was involved.Probably the best quality was that the author had no qualms about saying certain evangelistic tactics weren't working and then went on to clarify with real life examples and suggest changes that have actually worked! Nothings worse than pretending something is working when it obviously is not.a great read, come to it open and with brain engaged!
Book on relational evangelism which discussed making Christ the center of spiritual conversation. Also discussed getting nonbelievers into God’s Word allowing the Spirit to transform.
Although written in the 1980's, this book inspires believers to be a living witness to Christ, not just participate in witnessing activities. If written today, it would probably have "missional" somewhere in the title, but being a few decades removed from the current evangelical climate helps the book have a more enduring value. Although not handling any passage too deeply, he roots his conclusions in Scripture. He also gives lots of practical advice and anecdotes from his 25 years on the mission field.The walk-away for me is this: be a Christian who lives distinctively Christian in all areas of life, who loves all people God brings in his path, and who loves Christ and wants to tell others about him.
A realistic and common- sense discussion on what it truly means to share your faith. Every church that is struggling under the weight of perennially baby Christians who never move into maturity, should make this required reading.
a good book, presents a fair overview of the current state of evangelism and some recommendations that actually answer his critiqued flaws, something many authors do not do. Bravo.
Very clear straightforward guide to sharing your faith. Especially useful if you've already had negative experiences to see where you might have gone wrong.
Good, practical advice. Definitely something I'll look back at frequently.
This was a fantastic read. It was a slow start, but had such a great development of how to share the Gospel! Really loved this author's experience and insight into fulfilling the Great Commission.
