By telling the humorous and quirky story of Bob trying to sell swimsuits in the Arctic, Hamilton elucidates the fundamental concepts of sales that also apply in how we spread the gospel message. He offers pastors and other Christian leaders solid, simple guidance on how to share the faith, and grow one’s congregation.

Honestly, the author really doesn't really prove that these sayings are half truths. I actually started skimming because I felt the book was so pointless.
