Participants Guide

Believers universally affirm that evangelism is a vital part of what God calls them to do, but very few make a practice of doing it. They feel awkward and ill-equipped, either because they've never been trained, or because their lack of interaction with non- Christians prevents them from using and developing the skills they do have. Bill Hybels addresses these concerns and signals the next era in personal evangelism with Just Walk Across the Room. Drawing on fresh perspectives from the author's own experiences, as well as time-tested and practical illustrations, Just Walk Across the Room encourages and equips readers to routinely initiate spiritual conversations with those who don't know Christ. This is the Participant's Guide for participating in group study.

Building on the solid foundation laid in Becoming a Contagious Christian, Just Walk Across the Room signals the next era in personal evangelism. Pastor Bill Hybels's firm conviction is that the highest value in personal evangelism is being attuned to and cooperative with the promptings of the Holy Spirit. This means playing only the role you are intended to play-walking when the Spirit says to walk, talking when the Spirit says to talk, and falling silent when the Spirit suggests that you've already said enough.

More than two thousand years ago, Jesus himself introduced the perfect model for evangelism. He left the marvelous adoration of the angels and the perfection of heaven, and he chose to "walk" clear across the cosmos. He had no memorized script, no forced formulas.

Instead, he was armed only with an offer of redemption to people just like you and me, many of whom were neck-deep in pain of their own making.

Today, the goal for every Christian is to reflect Christ's love and follow his example by taking simple walks across rooms-leaving our circles of comfort and extending hands of care, compassion, and inclusiveness to people living far from God.

Hybels encourages Christ-followers to "live in 3-D"-developing friendships, discovering stories, and discerning appropriate next steps-as a means of learning to understand the Spirit's promptings. With fresh perspectives from his own reflections and experiences collected during his most recent decade of ministry. Hybels shows with undeniable clarity the power of this approach to evangelism.

The stakes are high. The implications are eternal. And you may be only a conversation away from having unparalleled impact on someone's life-if you will just walk across the room.

Reviews - What do customers think about Just Walk Across The Room?

Just Walk Across the Room: Simple Steps Pointing People to Faith  Mar 29, 2007
Easy to read. Inspires you to ask God to allow you to witness to someone "today".
 
Just Walk Across the Room book  Mar 27, 2007
This is a great book and I would recommend it for any Christian who has the desire to share their faith with others but is at a loss in how to do so. It is straightforward and easy to follow and very inspiring!
 
This book should be in your library, and your head...  Feb 25, 2007
I do greatly appreciate what Hybels has to say. His approach to evangelism is much like my own; and this book certainly gave me some useful ideas on how to take things to the next level. I'm not crazy about his writing style (personal preference), but overall, this is certainly a book I'll be holding onto.
 
Ready to Walk!  Feb 16, 2007
All of Hybels writing speaks to me, but this book moved me deeply. With each turn of the page, I felt my passion to share God's love growing. The stories were moving, but more importantly, God's truth shines through the words on the pages. If you haven't shared Christ with someone in a long time, or you're a little intimidated, read this book. Thanks Bill for your example and ministry!
 
A practical way to reach the people around you  Jan 14, 2007
Most believers are embarrassed, and non-believers are offended by the stereotype of a Christian who beats them over the head with the Bible.

This book shows a different approach, in a way that respects people as individuals. Learn how to take the opportunity to reach out and befriend people, and eventually the opportunities to witness come naturally.
