    This book was just what I needed to help improve my confidence in sharing my faith with others. Great examples. Great wisdom. It's helped me start looking for witnessing opportunities and given me the comfort that I don't need to have all the answers.

    The Unexpected Adventure by Lee Strobel and Mark Mittelberg is a book I really enjoyed reading. Having read other books by Lee Strobel I was excited to read this book and I was not disappointed.This is a devotional style book that is hard to put down but needs to be in order to digested. It is not a deep theological book but one that challenges our comfort zone of not sharing our faith. It is a humorous book that will motivate/challenge you (me) to be more willing to step out and share our faith. The stories in the book will show the reader that sharing one's faith is not a complicated ordeal nor is it only for those who stand behind a pulpit/podium.My favorite part of the book was that it reminds us that we may not always be the one to reap the harvest of a soul won for the Kingdom. Some of us may be the seed planter and that is perfectly fine.Using my criteria of "was I moved" this book receives a 4.5 out of 5. I was challenged to look at my life and see if I was being pro-active enough in sharing my faith (thinking). The book also allowed me to laugh. I would highly recommend this book for my friends.Paperback, 304 pagesZondervanMay 01, 2009

    Christianity Can be Fun The Unexpected Adventure may be the funniest book you will ever read about Evangelism. There are 42 crisply written chapters of both authors encounters with someone seeking God-or maybe not. There is something in this for everyone, be they seeker, skeptic, Christian or atheist. The authors describe one or more of the many links the Evangelist places along the path a seeker travels between not seeking God and becoming a fully devoted follower of Christ. Neither all of these links nor all of these paths lead to full-blown success storiesat least not in this book. And that is great, in a way, because while we may be privileged to plant the seeds, were not always there for the harvest. But God is. I am proud to disclose that I was there for one harvest (chapter #29) and I will always owe Mark a debt that cannot be repaid. But this book stands on its own and speaks with a freshand sometimes funnyvoice. Read # 28.

    Sharing your faith shouldn't be scarey or tedious. The authors remind us that we should be excited about speaking to others about Christ- and that our most effective testimony is the clear presence of Christ in our words and actions. The title accurately sums the contents of the book. Christianity is the opportunity for a great adventure with God consistantly directing our paths. This is fun and readily applicable reading. It made me realize that sharing the word of Christ isn't difficult, and we are never in it alone.
