WARNING: This is not just another book on evangelism. It's a simple idea of evangelism through friendship first, and the opportunities to share your faith that follow. It will bring friendships you already have to a new levels, and create opportunities for new, authentic friendships with those you will eventually meet. OUT: Evangelism as sales pitch, as conquest, as warfare, as ultimatum, as threat, as proof, as argument, as entertainment, as show, as monologue, as something you have to do. IN: Disciple-making as conversation, as friendship, as influence, as invitation, as companionship, as challenge, as opportunity, as conversation, as dance, as something you get to do. You're more ready for this than you realize, and so are your friends!… (more)

I don’t agree with all McLaren’s tenets, but I do like his relational approach to evangelism and his perception of faith as a journey--a process-and seldom a “punctiliar” conversion. This is a good book to get people thhinking and talking about the various aspects and dimensions of evangelism. I like his nonjudgmental approach to evangelism and, in his words, we are all “stories in progress surrounded by stories in progress.” ( )

This is a good book on how the nature of Christian evangelism has changed/is changing. Evangelism will never be done the way it has been done. McLaren shares some e-mails that a young lady wrote to him during his "evangelization" of her. I wish he would have been able to share the ones he wrote.

The days of door-to-door or street corner evangelism are over. The days of evangelism rallies are over. Those things were great because they worked, in their day. Now, it is about building relationships. ( )

Language for a new paradigm. Excellent. ( )

McLaren lets you read his email conversations with an unchurched person who is asking questions about spirituality. It's good. It's what "evangelism" is going to be like more and more. ( )
