The book starts out with a section on why becoming a contagious Christian is important, particularly if you want to embrace a seeker-sensitive approach to evangelism. The remainder of the book unpacks the following formula: High Potency plus close proximity plus clear communication equal maximum impact. This book is one I've read several times before purchasing it on Audible. It's an important book I will return to again and again and I wanted to have it read to me. For me, it's the single best book on evangelism I have ever read.
Yes, but I don't know when. Audible has been amazing to me. Every month I get another credit to get another book, but I usually buy 2 or 3. Back to the book... I don't know about another whole listen through... maybe some parts to reference here and there... so I will say
I am not sure. This is the first book I have obtained of its kind. It strengthens your faith and lets you know how to introduce it into those around you's lives. Unobtrusively and or pushy. Like I said... no other book can touch this one (so far).
No I haven't, this is my first one. I would definitely check them out in the future though.
Bill's words and Don's voice... amazing combination.
I did, but I couldn't... Usually I listen to audible books before bed, or on the way to work. With this one... I couldn't wait to take the train again to go to work ... HOWEVER... coming back home I would continue to listen and even put my iphone on its docking station with a big speaker and listen to it through lunch, dinner... cleaning the house... everything... I couldn't put it down!
Recommended reading to any serious follower of Jesus Christ. Practical, Scripture-based instruction. Common sense living for the Spirit-led follower who is trying every day to be more like Jesus.
I liked the "formula" given and the instruction to each part that followed.
I listened to it at "double speed" due to the slow presentation - I'd pick it up a notch or two.
Living a high impact life every day.
The simple ways it shows you how to be intentional with non-believers.
Just made me realize ALL people matter to God!!
good luck lots of good thoughts on evangelism. would be a great small group resource for churches trying to get people to share Jesus more. good narration good pacing well thought-out.
I love Bill Hybels' approach to evangelism and how he challenges you to start where you are. This book will inspire you and challenge you to be creative and really look around you to who God is calling you to help bring to Christ.
