    It's easy enough for anyone to understand and important enough for anyone who attends or works in a church!

    This is a easy read. Has some really good applications for connecting with the post-modern minds. Challenges the old mentality of evangelism as program, technique, or dumping tracks (truth) in someone's lap. The entire book flows out of dialogue with a young lady wrestling with Christianity. Similar to, but nearly as good as Boyd's "Letter's from a Skeptic". I think this book has real value as a discussion starter for small group or for a class that is discussing evangelism. If the ideas were new to me I would have enjoyed it a lot more. Overall it was a little flat in my opinion but I'm still going to use it for a class I'm leading.

    There is much in this book that is a much-needed breath of fresh air. Not only do many of the technique-oriented & push-to-decision methods of evangelism make a lot of Average Joe & Jane Christians uncomfortable, they will probably be decreasingly well received in future years.One caveat: one of McLaren's central thesis (the reason for the title) is that we don't have to be perfect (in character or in having answers) to have an impact for Jesus on someone's life. However, those who aren't already aware of Emergent and Christian interaction with postmodernism will probably come away feeling LESS ready than they realized initially. Another caveat to same group of people: McLaren can be prickly at times.

    So often we get caught up in converting people and witnessing to people that we come down on them too hard, and we don't take the time to stop and think about how they feel. Brian McLaren does an incredible job of taking a personal experience like that and going through it step-by-step. It's given me great ideas to use in our youth group, but it certainly isn't just for youth--it's for the WHOLE church, and the whole church needs to read it. I was sitting at lunch today listening to a conversation about people with different lifestyles, and I realized that everyone really does need to read this book and take a different approach to spreading the love, grace and compassion of God, and not giving a false impression.
