Item description for Evangelism in Everyday Life: Sharing and Shaping Your Faith by Lyle Pointer...
Overview Does the thought of witnessing about your faith cause your hair to stand on end, your palms to sweat, your heart-beat to increase, your tongue to stammer? Lyle Pointer and coauthor Jim Dorsey not only reassure the nervous witness but also offer practical help in confronting the many common objections of pre-Christians, such as the perennial question "There are lots of different ways to God: who says that yours is the only one?" Once a person comes to Christ, how do we guide him or her in getting firmly established in the life of a local church? How can we become effective spiritual advisers to help the new believer grow? Down-to-earth answers to these and many other such questions make this book an invaluable witnessing tool. Lyle Pointer has served as pastor, church growth consultant, and author. He presently serves as professor of practics and coordinator of the master of ministry degree program at Southern Nazarene University in Bethany, Oklahoma. He is also an associate minister and coordinates Personal Evangelism Ministries for his denomination.
Publishers Description Witnessing takes place when it is least expected: in the yard, at the grocery store or on the phone. Those relationships provide the opportunities to live and share Christ.Although, relationship evangelism is an ancient concept, it is the open door to friends, acquaintances, and coworkers. The thought of witnessing about faith can leave one tongue-tied, but Evangelism in Everyday Life reassures us that it is a natural outflow of our love for God. Living a holy life in daily activities becomes the light that shines on the hill, around the office and across the neighborhood.Care and compassion is the language that changes hearts. Once a person comes to Christ, this book also provides answers for guiding him or her along the journey. And the witness continues through discipleship and guidance. Rooting a new Christian firmly in the life of the church is the next step in deepening relationships with God and fellow man. Down-to-earth answers to these and many other such questions make this book an invaluable witnessing tool. Paper.
