Jesus walked in both love and truth perfectly. When truth is given without love, it can do more harm than good (as this book correctly points out). However, the same is true when love is presented with a downgraded truth. To me this is where this book fails. The apostle James spent much time showing us what love looks like, but never dismissed truth regardless how unappealing it may have been to the sensitivities of his culture. Nor did any other disciple. This book is great at elevating love and pointing out the mistakes of those who take an overly legalistic view of the gospel but there seems to be a liberal theological influence present.
I liked the "manners" and underlined several great points. Overall the book gives the impression that real love meets people where they are. That part I totally agree with. However, it inconsistently offers a sub message that "real love" is totally inoffensive, hip, and culturally savvy. It's loaded with the premise that we need to be...
Evangelism is something all believers are called to. There is a balance between being bold and accepting of others. I am seeking this balance and that was what I hoping from this book. To me, this is not that book. The book Questioning Evangelism seems to get to this better.
I appreciate the authors concern for others and how people need to be received gently and humbly. Yes, many believers need to develop a heart for non-Christians. But in Acts there does seem to be an urgency and boldness. This boldness seems to be a offensive thing to the authors.
Most of the other 1 and 2 star reviewers seemed dead on in their assessments. I did note the slam on the radio evangelist at the first. (Slam other Christians but anything else we accept ? ? ?) Yes, I have learned much from that man as well.
In this day in Christianity, the pendulum has swung to, "We are all okay." I do wonder if these authors would ever read the Puritans. Plenty to say,...
Sometimes, Christians are not sure how to talk about their faith in a way that is real and relatable. They worry about not having all the answers, saying the wrong thing, or being confronted with tough or controversial issues of faith. This book serves as a guide to help Christians have "coffee shop conversations" about religion, real talk about God in a way that has meaning, relevance, and admits mistakes.
I think this is probably the best book I have ever read about how to witness your Christian faith. Dale and Jonalyn talk about how to be open and honest, how to have manners when talking about belief systems (which is applicable to more than just religion), how to admit mistakes and avoid them, and how to be honest and open about what God really means to you.
So often, Christians talk a good game, using spiritual vocabulary, and it ends up coming across as very off putting to non-believers. This book shows you how to be more in touch with yourself, and how...
