Dan5 Stars Out Of 5August 19, 2010DanSo how do we deliver grace to our workplaces? Well, the answer is not found in most of the prototypical evangelism texts. While this book has similarities to others it offers some unique pieces directly suited for workplace and other settings as well.First, it speaks about lifestyle. This is pretty common in evangelism texts, but what is unique is the next step in this book. Workplace Grace develops the idea of faith flags, little statements you can naturally insert into conversations that express faith and can elicit questions. They move on to discuss faith stories, not the long witness yet, but short stories that show how an element of faith impacts your life in relation to where the conversation is at. Another key to the book is its discussion of teamwork. Many text speak of the importance of multiple people witnessing, but this book really helps a person understand this in the workplace setting. It recommends that we develop a network of Chrsitian coworkers, bosses, customers, suppliers, pastors, etc, all of whom we feel we can reference a person weve begun the conversation to. This recognizes the importance of many influences and also the very real press of time in a workplace. This is whats covered in chapters 1-7 and I feel they add the most to the discussion of evangelism. What follows in the second half are chapters devoted to important elements of evangelism- creating opportunities for evangelism by maintaining contact with unbelievers, walking through open doors by listening and asking questions, developing your story, the Gospel presentation, answering objections. These chapters are basically solid (though sometimes they do fall into the trap of being overly systematic and decision-oriented), but much of whats in these can be found in other texts.
