Witnessing used to involve laying out the truth and guiding a person to understand and accept it. But the awareness of basic Christian principles has changed and so have the needs of pre-believers. With a passion for people, authors David and Norman Geisler share an engaging, conversational approach to evangelism as they address:
- What makes old models of witnessing ineffective in today's culture
- Why evangelism must start with relational pre-evangelism
- How to ask questions, listen attentively, and understand what someone believes
- Ways to identify the real barriers to belief in order to build a bridge to truth
- How to keep dialogue going with different personality types
This refreshing, practical resource is ideal for churches and individuals. Readers will discover how God uses their everyday encounters for great things when they switch from trying to witness effectively to effectively being a witness through communication and compassion.
David Geisler received his Th.M. and M.A.B.S. from Dallas Theological Seminary, and Doctor of Ministry in Apologetics from Southern Evangelical Seminary. He has been involved in church and parachurch college ministry for 15plus years. He is currently the founder and President of Meekness and Truth Ministries located in Charlotte but he currently lives with his family in Singapore. Dave has taught his Conversational Evangelism approach at churches, ministries, and seminaries.
Heimdal5 Stars Out Of 5July 9, 2010HeimdalI am reading this book and it really makes me think and reconsider how I have failed trying to reach to others with the gospel simply because I ignored the others needs, barriers and their non-understanding of the basics of the gospel as we see it so often in our world today. I find a new desire and motivation to reach out to others; only now I will seek the prepare the soil and understand where the people I want to reach do stand before I share anything about Christ. This seem like a method to apply but if you consider how Jesus ask questions you will understand why we so often fail and get frustrated trying to share the whole gospel at once in a 4 steps presentation. Though God may still use the 4 steps gospel presentation, the majority of the people around us will need to have their hearts prepared. As a farmer prepares the soil before he sows, so ought we to do so in our mulitucutural, multifaith and postmodern world. As the son of a farmer, I wonder why I did not understand this before.
