What if you knew that by simply crossing the room and saying hello to someone, you could change that persons forever? Just a few steps to make an eternal difference. It has nothing to do with methods and everything to do with taking a genuine interest in another human being. All you need is a heart thats in tune with the Holy Spirit and a willingness to venture out of your "Circle of Comfort" and into another persons life. Just Walk Across the Room brings personal evangelism into the twenty-first century. Building on the solid foundation laid in Becoming a Contagious Christian, Bill Hybels shows how you can participate in the model first set by Jesus, who stepped down from heaven 2,000 years ago to bring hope and redemption to broken people living in a fallen world. Now its your turn. Your journey may not be as dramatic, but it can have a life-changing impact for someone standing a few steps away from youand for you as well, as you learn the power of extending care, compassion, and inclusiveness under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. The highest value in personal evangelism is cooperating with the Spirit, says Hybels. This means playing only the role youre meant to playwalking when the Spirit says to walk, talking when he says to talk, and falling silent when he suggests that youve said enough. Hybels encourages you to "live in 3D" … Developing friendships Discovering stories Discerning appropriate next steps … as a means of learning to understand the Holy Spirits promptings. With fresh perspectives from his own reflections and experiences collected during his most recent decade of ministry, Bill Hybels shows with convincing and inspiring clarity the power of this personal, richly relational approach to evangelism. The stakes are high. The implications are eternal. And you may be only a conversation away from having an eternal impact on someones lifeif you will just walk across the room.

Pamela Lister5 Stars Out Of 5Just Walk Across the RoomOctober 23, 2014Pamela Listerat first glance one might think it is a quick step by step to greater evangelistic outreach. But as i delved into each chapter i was challenged personally to be more tuned in to MY personal relationship with God in order to be a more vibrant Christian.
only when we are connected intimately through our communication with God can we be effective extensions of His love for humanity.. when we are willing He will use us to plant seeds in some of the most exciting places....our homes, our work, our neighborhood, our family our friends and strangers....how exciting, there is no lmit

I hate the word "evangelism" which brings to mind pushy, shouting, dramatic Christians trying to force Christ on others. Hybels explains that God provides opportunities everyday for average Christians to share their "secret" love and faith in Christ with others. He provides many examples backed by scripture but explained in everyday terms. I have already read and loaned this out twice.
