Product Description

Every sincere Christian will want to fulfill the sacred duty and tremendous privilege of sharing the gospel. It is liberating to know that we do not have to be bound to one method of evangelism. In advocating relational evangelism, Be My Witnesses offers many practical guidelines for being faithful witnesses. Evangelism is a two-way conversation that requires sensitive and flexible interaction which avoids religions jargon.

    Be My Witnesses by Kieran Beville is a helpful books that seeks to encourage Christians to be a faithful witness for Christ. So many books on witnessing can fall into the trap of laying out a system for its readers to memorize and then put to use in the real world. The problem with books or programs like that is that if the conversation veers off path, which most of the time it does, unless the person is a good communicator they can easily become frustrated trying to steer the conversation back to the pre-determined path. Many of these types of systems also rely on a heavy dose of talking from the one doing the witnessing instead of listening to the person who is being witnessed to. The problem with all of this is that our prime example, Jesus, did not operate like that. Instead, Jesus opted for personal interaction with those around Him. When speaking to the rich young ruler, Christ showed him how his love for his wealth kept him from God, even though in his eyes he had kept all the law. With the woman at the well Jesus corrects her thinking about where to worship and instead points her to the One who will be worshipped. Instead of some preplanned interaction with these people, and many others, Christ interacts with them and finds something that they fail to understand and shares truth with them, even though the young ruler walks away sad. If we are going to model our witnessing after someone, it should be the personal nature in which Christ dealt with people.

    This is the main thrust of Beville's book. He seeks to help the reader see how Jesus got involved with people's lives, a fact that infuriated the religious leaders of the day. Instead of presenting a system that could bring frustration and salesman type attitude ("I've just got to make this presentation right and say all the correct words in the right order and they'll be sold") Beville draws the reader to Christ's example over and over again. This book is incredibly refreshing and encourages building relationships with lost people to show them that you care and to be able to share the Gospel with them.

    Beville's theology is what really makes this book. He has a scriptural understanding of salvation and because of this the reader won't feel like a failure if the person being witnessed to doesn't come to Christ, because after all, it is God's job to save. Beville helps the reader to understand man's depravity and need for regeneration by saying the following:

    This idea of spiritual death is vividly conveyed in the words of the prophet Isaiah: 'but your iniquities have made separation between you and your God, and your sins have hidden his face from you so that he does not hear' (Isaiah 59:2). This is the true spiritual condition of every unsaved person. Because they are dead they have neither the ability nor the desire to change. People in this condition do no accept the things of the Spirit of God because they are foolishness to them. They cannot understand them, because such things are spiritually apprehended (1 Corinthians 2:14).....We have to remember we are dealing with people who are spiritually dead....They are not people who simply need to be awakened from a coma. They need to be regenerated.

    If we understand this truth it empowers our Gospel witness. The above comment means that if anyone is going to get saved it is because of God's work in them, not our well crafted words. He does use the proclamation of the Gospel to draw people to Himself, so we should be diligent in our study and knowledge of His Word, but ultimately it is God who does the work. Because, we know that He is ransoming for Himself a people from every tribe, nation and tongue we can be confident that God will work through the proclamation of the Gospel. Beville helps us to see how a proper understanding of these truths works itself out in our relationships with the lost. I was blessed by this book and would recommend it.

    I received a free copy of this book from EP Books in exchange for an honest review.
