"This is not a book about evangelistic technique but about doing evangelism biblically. There is a difference! Beginning with some of the everyday scenes in the gospels and then examining some of the parables, Jerram Barrs shows us that Jesus had no wooden formula which he followed, but rather was about engaging people in the depths of their being. As a result, this is an unusually wise guide to doing evangelism. The great truths of the gospel shine forth undiminished while at the same time the recesses of the human heart are explored with real insight."
—David F. Wells, Distinguished Senior Research Professor, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary; author, The Courage to Be Protestant: Truth-Lovers, Marketers and Emergents in the Postmodern World
"I can think of no other living educator who better embodies the gospel's tough love combined with its unconditional acceptance of flawed people than Jerram Barrs. In this wonderfully moving account of Jesus' approach to evangelism, Professor Barrs shows us the ways in which the Lord's message penetrates deep into the human heart, uncovering its darkest secrets, while always defending the dignity of its owner."
—William Edgar, Professor of Apologetics, Westminster Theological Seminary
"It is my privilege to have known Jerram Barrs for forty years, first as a student, later as a faculty colleague, always as a friend. In this work, he invites us to follow Jesus' example in seeking the lost, as he himself has done over the course of his life since Jesus found him as a despairing university student. The fruit of those years of evangelistic experience comes to expression here for our benefit as he traces Jesus' interaction in the Gospels with various individuals and groups, as he goes about his business of seeking and saving the lost. Each retelling brims with exegetical insight and existential grasp of what's going on at the time, followed by a section on 'learning from Jesus' that is full of practical wisdom, encouragement, and contemporary challenge. The whole book fairly breathes the Spirit of Christ, which is only to be expected from Jerram (as he is known to one and all) who embodies so well in his own life the example of Jesus."
—David Clyde Jones, Professor Emeritus of Systematic Theology and Ethics, Covenant Theological Seminary; author, Biblical Christian Ethics
