Item description for You're An Angel: Being Yourself and Sharing Your Faith by Peter Neilson...
Followers of the Way invite others to join them on the Way. That is the simple message of this book. The point is this: God uses ordinary people as 'angels' - messengers of good news. This book is written to make any Christian say, 'I could do that!' We pray that God will set people free from misconceptions and inhibitions about sharing their faith and liberate an army of ordinary people into giving away what they know about God. It will be Good News to somebody. By the way, being an angel is not the same as being angelic! Peter and David have written a marvellously encouraging, reassuring and above all honest account of Christian witnessing today. It's honest, and so it's full of hope. Because these guys understand that when it comes to evangelism, Christians have nothing to fear but fear itself. Be an angel, and read it! The Revd Paul Bayes. National Mission & Evangelism Adviser, Archbishops' Council, Church of England You're an Angel will be an answer to prayer for any church looking for resources that will both encourage and equip members to share their faith in everyday situations. It is theologically well grounded and deeply rooted in the authors' own experience of God, and presents an honest picture of the challenges as well as the opportunities offered by a post-modern generation. John Drane, author of The McDonaldization of the Church and Do Christians know how to be Spiritual? The rise of New Spirituality & the Mission of the Church (both published by Darton Longman & Todd). As we struggle with the great commission in this Post Modern age, there will be a corporate sigh of relief from all who read this book. David and Peter, through their own rich and diverse experiences and naked honesty, have given us permission to express our own feelings of doubt and inadequacy as evangelists. The theme of God's love for us, and of His desire that we 'be ourselves' as we reach out, is reiterated throughout and this, alongside practical and applicable strategies for bringing our faith to the world outside our churches, should greatly encourage and equip us to 'be an angel' wherever God has placed us. Fiona Marks, Alpha Scotland Director
