What if “evangelism” meant just being yourself?


If the gospel really is good news, why do most Christians avoid evangelism? Why is “witnessing” often a negative experience, for both the sender and receiver? Wouldn’t it be great if you could communicate the good news without having to become a spiritual salesperson?

What if…

The book is okay. It seems more directed towards evangelical Christians who are recovering from "bait and switch" and heavy-handed salesmanship "evangelism"--things Orthodox Christians traditionally don't do.

Good book. Kinda reinforced what I have always felt...rote evangelism rarely works and might do more harm than good.

This book shares practical examples and suggestions for creating authentic relationships,,,focus on REAL listening, caring about people and being the hands and feet.

I would rate this book higher, but it was a little dry to read.

It also comes with study questions and can be used as a class room study.

What an awesome book! If you have ever thought about sharing your faith with others (family, friends) and were thinking it required you to be courageous, this is the book for you. Every chapter has solid examples of what is known as Ordinary Attempts that can jump start your path to evangelizing. It's very easy reading and is 139 pages plus about 18 pages of questions for each chapter so this can be used in a Study and Discussion Group.

The Shack teaches that everything you do matters because you are a Child of God. Evangelism without additives drives home the point that when God says everything He means everything. The simplest gesture of listening to someone is a gift. Do you have a divine appointment with someone today?

Some things he wrote made me change the way I would think to evangelize. Other things, though, I felt attacked me and other Christians.

As with many books, I got the main idea after the first few chapters! A different paradigm to think about.
