    Overall I liked this book. It has many good points. I especially like Hybells' formula HP+CP+CC=MI. It makes sense. I also like his foundation that everyone is someone that God loves and died for. This rang true with me due to God revealing to me in another way. What I do not like, however, is the motivation given for witnessing and evangelizing. The emphasis for motivating Christians to become contagious Christians revolves mostly around self-gratification, such as adventure, joy, making one closer to God, and improving one's knowledge of the bible. While these are all good and things to be desired, they should not be the central reason for witnessing and evangelizing. I also did not care for the authors' losely interpreted rehashing of scriptures.The central reason should be that sinners are sinners, and if they do not repent they will go to hell. The authors do make this clear; however, it's toward the end and not discussed in nearly enough detail. Things I think Christians can take away from this book are that God loves and died for everyone. We should think of everyone with this in mind. The formula the authors gave is true of evangelizing and people taking us seriously. We must be actively seeking God, bringing ourselves into close proximity to those who need to hear the gospel, and clearly communicating it to them. Perhaps the most important piece of knowledge to be gleaned from the book is that conversion can take years. Some people do not readily accept the gospel; however, through continued, Spirit-led evangelism we can have a drastic impact on people for years to come.

    This book is great. Every church show be having classes using this book. It tells how to get others to the Lord by just being yourself. Read it and see.

    This is a wonderful tool for discipling yourself and others to share the gospel in an authentic way. It helps you realize what your style of evangelism is and how to be comfortable with your own style.

    The emphasis of Bill Hybels ministry is to attract the unchurched who are seeking answers. This book builds on that practice and teaches the reader how to do the same. The author reminds us that Jesus came to heal the sick, not the healthy. Hybels will teach you how to share the gospel naturally, without intimidating the unsaved.[Because this online service offers shipping discounts for purchasing multiple titles, I encourage to take advantage of that offer by getting the following book(s) that have been a blessing to me, personally.] Also recommended: THE PRAYER OF HANNAH by Kenn Gividen -|- This book has a surprise ending, unusual for non-fiction! In a stroke of genius, the author weaves a hidden message in his book, only revealed by the last footnote on page 127.

    I heard Mark Mettelberg speak about six years ago on evangelism and seven ways that the scripture shows it was done. Hearing him speak and reading his book has opened more doors for me than I ever had before. I have recently ordered the curriculum and will begin to train several others to do evangelism.
