Reviews - What do customers think about Your Home A Lighthouse: Hosting An Evangelistic Bible Study?
Great tool for reaching your neighbors. May 22, 2001
Your Home A Lighthouse demonstrates a very simple way to share your Christian faith with friends, neighbors and coworkers who are open to hearing about your beliefs. Opening your home, reading straight from the Bible (Book of John), and being real and transparent with people impacts their interest where biases might previously have existed against Christianity. This book is a great tool for a group of people who want to talk about who Jesus said he was/is, and how the Bible details his life. So many lives around the world have been changed as a result of this effective approach to faith discussions. I highly recommend exploring the Jacks' method and applying it to your life. Make your home a lighthouse, too.
