When it comes to evangelism, we often struggle to even open our mouths. Sometimes the problem is the inertia that comes with feeling out of practice — leading to low-level guilt, humming beneath the surface. Other times it’s simply the age-old presence of fear, which keeps us from speaking the truth in love.
In Before You Share Your Faith, Matt Smethurst offers five approaches to prepare our heart to speak the truth of the gospel to all that we meet.
So many great books on evangelism begin too far downstream. This volume is about being prepared for the conversation. So get ready to grasp the gospel, check your context, love the lost, face your fears, and start to share the best news anyone will ever hear.
Praise for the book:
"When I was a new Christian 50 years ago I read two little booklets by John Stott on personal evangelism that changed my life. Matt Smethurst has written a short book on the same subject that is every bit as good as those older essays but of course far more up to date. Read it—it could change your life!"
