About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
Soon-to-be-Doctor Ward gives us practical advice about holding conversations with non-Christians. His methods focus on understanding and compassion, not on "scoring points" or "winning" arguments. He deftly explains the important difference between the "conversion" approach and the "conversation" approach.
This volume is peppered with vignettes which illustrate his personal experiences developing and employing his method. These stories show real-world examples of success and failure of various approaches, and show us all how we can better view our friends and acquaintances.
I would suggest this should be on every Christian leader's bookshelf, especially those who deal with people between the ages of 12 and 25. I would further suggest that "Conversations" classes should be developed by local church congregations to help us all implement the wisdom which came from Stanley Ward's experiences. Lastly, I would suggest those who study this book also load the Napkin Theology videos, also from Dr. Ward, onto their mobile devices for quick and easy illustration when in discussion with non-Christians.
Here are some of the highlights:
♦ "Focus on the conversation and let God take care of the conversion.
♦ "All of us have presuppositions..."
♦ "Share the truth gently."
Perhaps best of all, the author's emphasis on LOVE, as in I Corinthians 13: "Love promotes conversation, because it is patient, kind, honors others without drawing attention to self..."
√ All in all, an excellent book for the Christians wanting to share their faith. Reading a well-written book is always a pleasure; I find it annoying when I have to advise a writer how to write proper English. I also appreciate the fact that the links in the Table of Contents actually work properly. This might seem like an obvious thing that would always be done right, but not so!
♫ A Review by Chris Lawson
For another great book on outreach, this is probably my all-time favorite Christian book. I found out about this, because they were using it at Saddleback Church in Orange County, Calif: Just Walk Across the Room: Simple Steps Pointing People to Faith.
Note: I do not know the author of this book, and no one requested I write this review.
