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.

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.

Good, practical advice. Definitely something I'll look back at frequently.
