"So you want to witness! I did too, but I didn't have a clue about how to do it without stubbing my toe in the process." So begins the book that has helped more than a million people give their faith to others. Paul Little's humor and down-to-earth approach help show how friendly and natural evangelism can really be.

Even though this book was written over 40 years I found it completely relevant and as insightful as it would of been had it been written today.

Though a little out-dated now, Paul Little's book How to Give Away Your Faith provides a strong argument for the Biblical example of witnessing and provides practical help for evangelism. It is obvious that Little is not just an armchair theologian, but that his wisdom comes from many years of faithful witness of Jesus. It is Christ-centered and encouraging.
Solid. Focused on practical actions, but also on our need to have a vibrant personal faith with Jesus Christ.

There were a few times where I thought he was allowing his experiences override what scripture teaches, but over-all he was sticking close to truth.

Not an exhaustive book on evangelism, but certainly a good primer. Very heartfelt.
I'm not one to initiate a conversation about faith with others, but there are times when I'm asked about mine. When that happens, I want to have informed answers - backed by personal testimony, lifestyle evangelism, and scripture. This book will help with that. :)
Reading this for the second time I believe. Didn't we have to read it at Cedarville? Feeling the need for a refresher in talking about my faith. I'm glad my church has a fairly well-stocked library!

A quick read. My version was a bit out-dated, but the content was as relavant as ever. Worth it if your asking yourself how to share Christ to others.
Great basic evangelism book. I will continue to reference this book, especially when feeling discouraged.
whish I read this much earlier.
