The Old methodologies that worked when we had a culture that was definitely Christian is gone. The pure pagan is not capable of responding intelligently to a five minute presentation of the Gospel. One of the first things in dealing with nonChristians is to allow them to evangelize you first.

When it comes to evangelism, do you ever feel like a sheep among wolves? You know the gospel message should get out, but frankly, you're in no hurry to become supper for some hungry wolf pack. You've been chewed on once too often; let the "professionals" do it. For everyone who has felt that way, Joe Aldrich has good news: God wants to make you into an "attack lamb." For most of us, he says, evangelism means loving people until they ask you why. It's touching people in ways appropriate to your own giftedness so that Christ becomes the issue. God isn't asking you to back an unbeliever into a corner to mash mental machinery. He's not calling you to back-up the evangelical dump truck and pull the lever. He is calling you to action. Gentle Persuasion is an encouraging appeal for Christians of all ages and abilities to become part of God's strategy for bringing needy men and women to Christ. join Joe as he explains how cherry pies, hammers and saws, lawn mowers, broken down cars, chariots of fire, babysitters, duck hunters, llama farmer, anyone can draw your friends to the Savior.
