Read this book from cover to cover to grasp the concept of "being the good news" to your neighbors and friends. Unless people see Christians living the life in everyday situations, they may have a distorted view of Christ and the Gospel.

Michael Comments:
I picked this book up a couple of years on a clearance rack for just a few bucks. What a good a choice that purchase turned out to be. What I liked most about this book was the point that in order to effectively evangalize and share Christ with others that have different lifestyles than us we've got to show people that we care about them. Lifestyle Evanagelism gives helpful methods to build relationships with others that can be powerfully used by God. Jesus showed us through his relationships that we've got to reach out to others whether they are different than us or not. A few good examples would be Jesus' calling to make Matthew the tax collector a disciple. Additionally, Jesus reached out the samaritan at the well. The apostle Paul disscusses his mission of evangelism in 1 Corinthian 9;22-32 and says '. I have become all things to all men so that by all possible means I might save some. 23I do all this for the sake of the gospel, that I may share in its blessings.' ( )

This is one of my favorite books on evangelism...I think many within the Emerging Church would identify with much of this book.

I will always recommend this as a first read when talking about reaching people ( )
