As someone who finds speaking about Christ with others challenging I was encouraged and inspired by the call to a true and honest gospel that I am fortunate and blessed to be included in delivering.
And I think the warnings presented help some of the wrong-headed worries I feel and encourage me to keep guarding against some of the influences that concern me in the world around about.
What I found was a book focused on developing believers with a mindset for evangelism, or growing Christians with heart for the gospel. I'd half-expected a "how to evangelize" book, which tend to leave me feeling guilty and paralyzed; but instead, this little book is all about knowing, loving and valuing the true gospel so that the gospel soaks into and out from our lives.
In the process, Stiles corrects some of the common misconceptions about the gospel. He tackles issues like pragmatism in evangelism, legalism, easy-believism, assuming the gospel, making social issues more important than the gospel, and more.
One of the strengths of Marks of the Messenger is it's format. It's short; it's chapters are short; and it's very easy to read. The style is conversational and each chapter starts with a story. After church on Sunday I was talking to someone who was also reading this book (on a Kindle--and this is a perfect book for your Kindle), and he said it was almost "light reading," and that's exactly right. But he also called it "deep," and that's right, too. You could hand this book out indiscriminately to believers (not a bad idea) and know it would be appropriate for all of them.
In Marks of the Messenger, J. Mack Stiles helps us identify the gospel and put it in its rightful place in our lives and in our world. This book will help the believer be emboldened by the gospel in order to share the gospel, and that's an excellent thing. For that reason especially, it gets my seal of approval.
