In recent years, the Share Jesus without Fear book and its growing family of ancillary products have sparked a faith-sharing movement that continues to gain momentum. It began with the jaw-dropping story of William Fay, once a money-driven businessman with Mafia ties who ran a house of prostitution until it was raided by police. Facing the threat of jail time, Fay turned t ...more

I learned that there is no reason to be afraid of sharing my faith. I don't need to be afraid of failing, because God is pleased with my obedience and he will use that to plant a seed, even if it doesn't sprout immediately. This book also reminded me of Philemon 6: "and I pray that the sharing of your faith may become effective for the full knowledge of every good thing that is in us for the sake of Christ." God commanded me to share my faith so that my joy may increase. The author's testimony i ...more

William Fay, a formerly power obsessed Mafioso who owned and operated a brothel, encountered the redemption and salvation of Jesus Christ while facing prosecution and jail time. Share Jesus Without Fear is the product of his study of the Scriptures and his personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Coauthored by Linda Evans Shepherd, an author and nationally known speaker, Share Jesus Without Fear is also a popular evangelism training program taught by Fay in churches and seminars nationally.

Approximately 20 years ago, I had the privilege of of meeting Bill Fay and hearing him present the material in this book. He has plenty of charisma and a strong personality, so I could see how he would make an excellent evangelist, but the purpose of this book is to make the rest of the Church strong evangelists.

In this book you will find a convincing appeal to be involved in personal evangelism, a set of questions that will help you bring up the topic of faith (a topic typically avoided by Amer

He has some practical ideas about how to do evangelism. I find his method to be very aggressive. Yet, I agree with him that most Christians are guilty of the "sin of silence".

This book is so good. As a Christian, I sometimes find that i don't know what to say to try to approach a non-Christian about eternity. I care about them, I just don't know what to say. I always feel like I am "getting into their business" and being nosy if I try to have a conversation with them about Jesus and what He did for us. This book really helps you get past that hurdle. I think he says something in the book like if you don't say anything to them about the gospel and Jesus then you are l ...more

This book was extremely convicting for me and motivated me to start sharing my faith. I realized that sharing Jesus has nothing to do with me! It's about the power of God and his love for the lost. Any method of sharing your faith must be done out of love for God and for people- without love, it is merely a clanging cymbal.

The companion Bible lives on my hip. This book will help you teach others about the Lord, and be able to assist them with any, imaginable question they raise, pretty much. The glossary of objections to faith in the back of this book, still helps me share the Word with non-believers!

Simple and seems easy to implement. Once I try it out I'll write my experience here. I bought this ebook from Barnes and Noble for $0.99

No theological foundation. Pelagianism, modalism, utilitarian methods of evangelism, etc. Don't read.

Read this back in 2009. I liked it at the time, but my views on evangelism have changed quite a bit since then. This book, like many others on evangelism, basically teach you how to pressure unbelievers into praying a prayer to "accept Jesus" into their hearts. As long as you get them past the 5 commitment questions, it doesn't matter if they are broken over their sin or show genuine repentance, just make sure they pray the sinners prayer.

In spite of all that, I rated it two starts instead of on

This is a fantastic book on evangelism. Bill Fay has an incredible testimony with a passion for God that is unmatched. However, like many evangelism methods, Fay's approach can be quite aggressive and may not be right for everyone. While Fay offers some general answers to common objections to the faith, one must accept that deeper conversations may be necessary. The book is better than a 3. I would give it a 3.75.

I believe this book is practically helpful, although, like most witnessing books these days, not very theological. Eat the fish and spit out the bones. Yet, I covered it with my church and many have mentioned the class years later. It has the potential to make an impact with those who truly are timid about witnessing.

This is a great book for developing a method for personal evangelism. There are pieces of the puzzle that I believe Fray is missing, like servant evangelism, but his method is very good. He stays centered on the Bible and the power of the holy Spirit. If you are looking for a good primer on how to share your faith, this is it.

Some helpful information on how to deal with common objections to Christianity. However, I have issues with Fay's understanding of how God's grace is applied to Christians. The issues really show in Chapter 6. This is my reason for such a low rating.

Being a saved Christian, I am still in the middle of other people who may not be aware of the true Gospel. This book really affirms ways to have a discussion with people about it in a non-threatening way. Truly a good read whether mature or new to faith.

This author has quite a story to tell about his life and conversion. And he is not afraid to tell it. The book is filled with practical evangelism methods and techniques.

One of the best books on sales I have ever is classic old school style salesmanship applied to the gospel. WHICH MEANS I HATED THE BOOK!!!!

This book was amazing. It really made me think about how I should share my faith way more. It prepared me to be a witness and I'm extremely thankful for that.

Offered some good insight into sharing the gospel but does have a few issues. I enjoyed reading the book but might recommend something else for this genre.

Very detailed book on how to share your faith. I have found the most successful recipe for sharing Jesus is to live by being true to your faith.

A very readable and practical book. This book should be keep close by as a handbook for every Christian to refer to on a regular basis.
