One of my favorite quotes from the book is, "...each biblical summary of our faith is different because each time that truth is made known, the situation is different. When we are communicating the Gospel to someone we know and love, or even to someone we meet for the first time, our communication is not merely to be a matter of stating the central truths of the Gospel in some form that we can readily memorize....The focus in evangelism is not to be whatever is easy for us, but the particular person to whom we are speaking . Communicating the Gospel is a personal endeavour, one person to another, and therefore we must be prepared to be flexible." Anyway, I recommend the book!
However, that material only occupies a small section towards the end. It is very valuable.
Unfortunately, the bulk of the volume seems given to polemics against other Evangelicals. I think the author would have "caught more flies with honey than with vinegar" if he'd followed his own advice in writing this volume. I fear that it will turn off a large percentage of the very people that need to read that important end section.
