He also demonstrates how to use cultural tools to build bridges to establish conversations, all the while remembering the sincerety and authenticity of the witness. This is a short, but worthwhile read.
So I picked up this book, because it seemed to expound on everything I was thinking, and there's nothing like finding a book that validates your way of life. Challenging your mind is overrated.
I've read Turner's work before, and all of it is written in a simple, conversational style. It makes for a casual read, with deep thoughts and personal insights mixed in between. There's a lot of great information in this book, and Turner's journey from a proselyting evangelist to someone who genuinely cares for the people he meets is interesting. Turner doesn't drop complex theological terms or quote hundreds of Bible verses. He simply tells how he is trying to be a witness for Jesus, failures included with the successes.
An interesting part of this book is the conversations with various people that are chronicled, ranging from atheists to agnostics to pastors of large churches. It's a short book that can be digested quickly, and is helpful if you're trying to express the way you feel about Jesus.
This is one of several books I would recommend for someone in Christian "sub culture" and is burned out by it.
This book surely belongs in the Relevant Books catagory. It focuses on being modern-day evangelists without being biased or sarcastic. I enjoyed this book very much and will recommend it to my college friends. Thank you very much Mr. Turner!
