Reviews - What do customers think about God Space?
Insightful, Challeging and Extremely Practical Dec 18, 2009
Doug Pollock does an excellent job of looking at talking about spiritual matters from a holistic perspective. He doesn't just focus on sharing the gospel, instead he deals with everything from engaging someone who is far from God to others who might be very open to discussing faith issues. In addition, the book is full of practical suggestions anyone can begin using right away. I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in as Doug says, "increasing the quality and quantity of their spiritual conversations."
Take Your Ministry to a New Level Dec 15, 2009
Off the charts. God Space will open your eyes to the real ministry opportunity that so many of us miss. It's so practical. This is a weekend read and it will change your view on how to minister to others, how to meet them where they are at in life, but more importantly to see them as Jesus sees them. Doug Pollock uses very easy to understand life examples of what he shares. This would be a great book for your church staff to read and put into play. Read it, discuss it, live it. Thanks Doug for giving me 20/20 vision. Chris@lifehousesa.com
Hit the sweet spot Nov 17, 2009
Doug Pollock's book, God Space, gives hope to everyone who wants to share his/her faith, but wants to do it in a way that is not a turnoff. Giving many examples of how to create God space in our everyday conversations, Pollock helps the reader understand how to treat not-yet Christians the way we would want to be treated if we were in their shoes. It's enough to get you excited about sharing your faith again.
This book isn't just for the inexperienced. The leadership of Faculty Commons, the faculty ministry of Campus Crusade for Christ, has made this required reading all of their field staff. Our discussions about the book have been incredibly fruitful.
WONDERING..... Nov 4, 2009
Wondering how many people take the time to DEVOTE time to others? GOD SPACE has helped me to see the value of wondering about others, and then devoting time to invest in them in a genuine way, as I patiently listen and wait for opportunities to share Christ with them. I loved the "How well do you listen" checklist...and found ways to improve those skills in my own life,when meeting with others. Thanks, Doug, you've challenged and encouraged another reader!
Brian Burchell Nov 2, 2009
In their book Execution, CEO gurus Bossidy and Charan define execution as "the gap between what a company's leaders want to achieve and the ability of their organizations to deliver it." Failed execution is the key reason companies fail to dominate their markets. And it's a far too common failure in most Christian individuals, particularly with regard to our evangelism mandate. Evangelism is often the least desirable Christian discipline yet the one we feel most guilty about. As a long-time Campus Crusade for Christ staff member, I can relate.
So how do we narrow this threatening gap between our call to share the gospel and our failure to actually do it? Doug Pollack has an answer in his book, God Space.
God Space provides a framework for natural, loving evangelism that will winsomely lead more people to our wonderful Savior. In addition, Pollack has provided superb questions to lead the reader toward spiritual conversations. "Has there been one book or movie that's left its mark on you in a significant way? How so?" What a fun, engaging and insightful question! This conversation could easily go toward the depths of the heart. See [...] for his remaining ninety-nine "wondering" questions.
God Space and its supplementary website [...], work together to nurture the Christian to effectively engage people Godwardly amidst a religiously intolerant society. I predict it will become my core tool for developing evangelism practitioners in the Christians I coach.
My wholehearted 5-star recommendations! But if I haven't sold you, taste and see via [...]
