Publishers Description The gospel really is the best news anyone will ever receive. So why do Christians shy away from talking about Jesus outside of church? And, when they do speak of Jesus, why do they often get a disinterested or scornful reponse? Mack Stiles offers a wealth of answers, ideas and stories in this heads-up, hands-on evangelism handbook. His creative strategies for reaching an ethnically, culturally, economically, educationally, geographically and ideologically diverse world with the best news ever are drawn directly from his own work as an evangelist in today's student world. In Speaking of Jesus he shows readers how to keep their eyes open for "divine appointments," how to approach others with a servant spirit, how to cross relational barriers, how to simply tell one's own story of faith, and how to answer questions with honesty and confidence. Speaking of Jesus may well be an Out of the Saltshaker for the 1990s and beyond. With contagious enthusiasm, Stiles stresses that evangelism isn't about exhibiting superhuman courage or perfecting specialized techniques or exercising extraordinary gifts. Instead, he shows that people of faith can use everyday situations and everyday language to pass on the simple--and simply wonderful--news about Jesus.

Give It Away! Nov 29, 2006
I have owned three copies of this book and have read it twice myself. The first book I gave it to a friend that was heading over to China as part of a missions team. He said that he was not a fast reader and would probably not get to it. I talked to him later and he said that he made it through once and was going to read through it a second time and this time take notes. I never got that one back, so I bought another one and this time I read it for my second time (it had been a few years since the first time). I had a friend from Ethiopia over for supper and I gave him this book and last I heard he loved it. I bought another copy and this one sits on my shelf for either the next person or the next time that I read it. I have read many evangelism books and this is by far the easiest to understand and accomplish. Give the book away so that the Gospel will be heard to the ends of the earth.
Not a formula, just the truth. Oct 7, 2000
This is not a book promoting a new way to tell people about Christ. It's not a new formula, flow chart or outline. This book is amazing because it's an honest look at Jesus, who he is, how he lived and how we can imitate him. This book has motivated me to love others as Jesus does. If you're feeling like you're in a slump when it comes to loving others this book may be just what you need.
An Inspiration through J Mack Stiles, An excellent read Jan 8, 2000
"Speaking of Jesus" is "Out of the Saltshaker" for this generation. The author leads his reader with great stories to a desire of improving one's own witness of Christ. Pick it up, read the whole thing in one setting. Get the inspiration to talk to those in your daily life about how you really feel about your relationship with your Creator and what He's done your life. jp
The book was refreshing to the heart of evangelism. Jan 25, 1999
The book was excellently written. It did, however, contain some weaknesses as do all books. As I enjoyed the personal experiences that the author offered, I was troubled in that there was only one account were it was not known if the person came to the saving knowledge of Jesus. A person can still evangelize even if no one accepts Jesus as their personal Savior i.e. Noah. Over all it was a breath of fresh air in the lungs of evangelism. May God bless the future readers as much as He has blessed me by reading it.
The most honest book on evangelism I have ever read. Dec 29, 1998
Styles puts evangelism in the world in which I live. The stories he tells and the situations in which he found himself reflect where I have been. From the Aspen experience to the conversation with Mike, Mack Stiles shows us how sharing our faith can be as natural as breathing. Forget the Thursday night witnessing regime. Read this book and be inspired to become a 24 hour 7 day-a-week ambassador for Jesus. People need Jesus and Mack shows you how to get that point across in a way that people will listen.
