Such a helpful and simple method for engaging with questions about the Christian faith. This book is simple without being shallow and as such I'd recommend it to any Christian who sometimes finds difficult questions...difficult.
This book is a real encouragement. It is a shot of adrenaline in an area we are so often paralysed by fear in. It is a book that keeps it simple, encourages perseverance, comes with refreshing honesty and real insight into how to engage, communicate and sharpen our evangelism. Paul writes with honesty and it is encouraging to read the ideas of someone who has thought long and hard about evangelism and has refined practices and endeavours through serious reflection. The big take always for me were, not being stumped by the same evangelistic question twice, that was a real wake up call. His three step approach of take People to Jesus, ask a searching question then take them to the cross is very memorable. I also liked his worked examples of common questions and the spiritual appreciation of the task before us. I don’t think Paul really says anything earth shatteringly new but writes compellingly, concisely and encouragingly about an area of life we all feel deficient in. I would recommend this book to everyone and will be stocking it on our church book stall as a great hope filled injection for us in our work of reaching lost people for Jesus.
Paul’s clear helpful and non threatening approach made it a refreshing and practical read. It has encouraged me to be more intentional (good title) in taking people to Jesus, taking the initiative and taking them to the cross. Buy 10 and give them away to the 10 most reticent evangelists you can find!
I’m going to commend this book to the church family at All Souls. Why? Because I love Paul Williams’ pastoral heart. When it comes to telling others about the Lord Jesus Christ, he knows people have fears and addresses those fears. I love his methodology. He insists the best answers come from the lips of Jesus and I love the fact he models reaching out to others.
This book deals beautifully with the fear of evangelism by enabling the reader to see that it’s possible to be on the “front foot” when sharing the gospel. His encouragement to keep our focus on what Jesus says as opposed to more abstract debating points is terrific, as is his reminder that if someone asks questions we do best by reciprocating with questions so that we can engage in a conversation, not defend a position. Finally, he takes all the pressure off us by clarifying that it is God’s role to open people’s eyes and ours to pray for opportunities for conversations with the right people. A really great book for anyone nervous about evangelism.
