I enjoyed How to Talk about Jesus without looking like an Idiot by Andy Bannister. It is written is a lively way which is typical of Bannister and combines evangelistic savvy with apologetic sensitivity. He begins by suggesting that fear is one of the key reasons why Christians don’t share their faith. He then encourages the reader to be fearless in evangelism and states that good questions are the key. Using Jesus as the example, Bannister shows how good questions can open up a conversation. He then outlines four different types of questions: What Questions, Why Questions, Wondering Questions and Whether Questions and shows how they make a contribution to gospel conversations. Then he gives advice on how to answer difficult questions before bringing things back to Jesus who must be the end goal of every evangelistic situation. This is an excellent and easy to read book and should certainly be used to encourage and equip more Christians to share their faith.
