Shift how you approach evangelism! Mar 25, 2004
My first exposure to evangelism was being dropped off a beach in So. Cal. and told to tell people about Jesus. It must have been strange sight to see me walking up to a girl in a bikini and trying to tell her that God had a wonderful plan for her life. Since that day I've struggled the Great Commission. I don't want to be a salesman, because I don't believe that Jesus is a product. On the other hand, I don't want to simply float through life hoping that Jesus pops into the conversation.
The authors take the strain between rapport and boldness and built a book around it. They contend that the call followers of Jesus is to make disciples. This command is so much more than simply a sales pitch. People need an ongoing exposure to Jesus if they are going to follow him.
The book is broken down into two parts. The first lays the theological foundation of the book. The second half of the book lists effective behaviors that Jim Peterson has seen in those who have been "bearing fruit" in the area of evangelism. Some areas (i.e., prayer) are intuitive, other areas are not.
One practical suggestion Jim had was to introduce nonbeleivers to Jesus by reading through a book of the Bible. When I read it a few months ago I thought he was crazy. As my husband and I prayed over it, we found ourselves asking others if they would like to read and discuss the book of John. They said yes. Now we have a Bible study of the unchurched and formally churched.
