How should we evangelize, or better, how we can effectively evangelize in today's society is what the author addresses in this refreshing and pertinent book. He presents nothing new, or introduces some gimmicks we can use, but takes us back to Christ and the approach he used while on this earth. Be yourself, show genuine interest, speak from your heart, listen, are the traits expounded in this book with examples of Jesus and His encounters, as well as others. A good read, and I would say a must read, if you find evangelizing difficult or even frightening.
Dodson is an excellent writer. He clearly communicates some key ideas on why and how we can better share the gospel. I loved that he put many stories and concrete examples in the book so we could see the key ideas in action. Great work. I will be reading mire books by this author.
The renewed vision for Evangelism that Dodson sets forth emerges from his own relationships and cultural engagement.
After beginning with an honest breakdown of bad evangelism, he equips readers with an awareness of cultural dynamics that is more conducive to good evangelism. This awareness is coupled with phenomenal material on gospel fluency and personal stories of how this has played out in his own life.
Hands down this goes near the top of any reading list on missional living, evangelism, and apologetics.
This book provides a fresh look at how the Gospel is relevant in our world. Its words of encouragement and exhortation lift rather than shame us into action. Many practical suggestions are given on how to not only share the Gospel, but more importantly how to prepare ourselves to present a believable Gospel to the world. I wholeheartedly recommend this book.
