About the Author
Top customer reviews
First off, the book is well researched. The author does not just give his opinion on how Christians should try to share their faith. Instead, his recommendations are based on many surveys, studies, and his personal experiences over the past few decades. Some of the statistics that he sites in the book will really open your eyes about the challenge today's church faces when it comes to evagelism. Despite the existence of numerous "Mega-churches" across America, we are still failing to reach a majority of the population who have no idea what Christianity is all about.
Secondly, I liked the book, because the author sticks to the basics, and avoids denomination bias. He uses a simple formula when it comes to evagelism. We need to help others understand the Gospel, not the specifics of our denomination, but the fundamentals. Christ crucified for our salvation is our bottom line, and the Bible is our primary source.
Thirdly, the author takes a realistic approach to evagelism, so that everyday Christians (myself included) are not overwhelmed by our role in the great commission. Mr. Petersen makes it very clear that not everyone is ready to receive Christ as his or her personal savior. That the process of conversion may take some time, and our role when talking with others (and living our life before them) may be just to help them find the truth of the Gospel out for themselves.
Lastly, I liked the fact that this book is filled with practical advise. The author does not just talk about evagelism, but he offers many practical ways to get started in this area. Before reading this book, I always thought that eveagelism was better left in the hands of others. I did not feel like I had the skills required to help others understand the message of the Gospel. Having finished this book- I come away thinking that I can do this, and should get involved.
I highly recommend this book to any Christian who is trying to better understand what evagelism is all about. It is an easy read, and will help answer many questions you may have about how to help further the Kingdom of God.
