Item description for Just Walk Across the Room: Simple Steps Pointing People to Faith by Bill Hybels...
Overview 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.
Publishers Description What if redirecting a person's forever really is as simple as walking across a room?In Just Walk Across the Room, Bill Hybels introduces the next era in personal evangelism with a natural, relational approach that follows Jesus' own example. When Christ 'walked' clear across the cosmos 2,000 years ago, he had no formulas and no script---just an offer of redemption to people like us, many of whom were neck-deep in pain of their own making.Astounding things happen when you follow the model set by Jesus. Emphasizing the leading of the Holy Spirit, Hybels invites you to step out of your 'Circle of Comfort' and into encounters with people who long for someone to take an interest in them---men and women with stories to tell and hearts that yearn to experience God's love reaching out to them through your smile, your encouragement, your transparency, your friendship. Find out how you can make the difference of an eternity for someone standing near you. It all starts with a 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.
