Practical approach to lifestyle evangelism

In this book, Rebecca Manley Pippert gives some very practical advice on how to use lifestyle evangelism when attempting to share your Christian faith with others. The main theory of the book (which I agree with) is that most Christians don't know how to share their faith, and most non-Christians are scared of being victimized by aggressive evangelism techniques (if you were to die today - where would you go?). Her basic solution is for Christians to relax, use the Bible, and let our lives provide the witnes to our faith. Seems like pretty simple stuff, but it can actually be quite challenging (especially if someone responds to the Gospel when presented with it).

The book is full of stories from her experience which help illustrate her points (both success stories and failures are included). They also provide some humor which I think is the author's attempt to say that we Christians need to lighten up a little when it comes to evangelism.

Although there is nothing extremely profound, or new in this book, I do think the author does a good job of explaining how Christians should use Jesus' behaviour as our example when trying to reach others. Also, the chapters about Jesus and the Pharisees were pretty well done.

Overall, I recommend this book for any Christian wanting to learn more about evangelism, and practical ways to bring God's light into your world. If you have read and liked any of Jim Petersen's books about evangelism then I think that you will enjoy this one also.

Good Stuff!

I found many of the practical stories in this book to be life changing. I believe that "real life" stories and experiences are what can change a heart. This book reveals some good information on evangelizing our world which so desperately needs it.
