You were born for this.
God hardwired youyes, youfor this.
I'm talking about sharing Jesus with others.
What if I told you evangelism is less about delivering a polished presentation and more about having a real conversation?
What if I told you that God has created you to bring glory to himself by sharing Jesus with others, and that you dont need years of training to obey what he already made you to do?
God created you for his glory to advance his gospel with the gifts, talents, and opportunities he gave you. You live at this time in history for a purpose bigger than yourself. In these pages you will read how to connect the gospel story with your story, and how to talk about that story in normal conversations with people you know.
No need to freak out.
Just you, Jesus, and othersin conversations that matter.
Alvin L. Reid serves as Senior Professor of Evangelism and Student Ministry and the Bailey Smith Chair of Evangelism at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, NC.
"Doc Reids passion to see souls know Jesus is evident. He has dedicated decades of his walk with Christ toward the diligent work of evangelism. Sharing Jesus Without Freaking Out is simply Docs way of preaching what he practices. This text will enrich your walk, serve as a practical manual for those you teach, as well as mobilize saints from all walks of life to share the good news of the gospel weve been privileged to steward."
D. A. Horton, pastor of Reach Fellowship and chief evangelist for Urban Youth Workers Institute
"Here is an extremely approachable and, at times, light-hearted approach to a deadly serious subject: telling others about your love for Christ without fear. I have given my life to the idea of one person lovingly and effectively telling another about the joy of walking with Jesus, and in this book, Alvin Reid does a superb job of helping you learn how to share your faith effectively. Fearlessly. I enthusiastically commend it to you."
Rebecca Manley Pippert, author of Out of the Saltshaker, Into the World
"Lets face it: most Christians are freaked out when it comes to evangelism. We dont need someone scolding the ineffectiveness of the church today as much as a leader to show a fresh, effective way to tell the timeless good news. My friend Alvin Reid does just that in this encouraging book. You can have real and effective conversations with people about Jesus; Alvin will show you how."
Ed Stetzer, Billy Graham Distinguished Chair for Church, Mission, and Evangelism and executive director of the Billy Graham Center for Evangelism at Wheaton College
