Most people find faith because they know another Christian, see the difference Jesus makes, and hear their story. Yet most of us are reluctant faith sharers. This book inspires every Christian to see themselves as a story bearer...
Most people find faith because they know another Christian, see the difference Jesus makes, and hear their story. Yet most of us are reluctant faith sharers. This book inspires every Christian to see themselves as a story bearer.
Four distinct stories collide in great evangelism: God's story, our story, the story of our friends and the story of our culture. The book expounds them all, encouraging us to learn and tell well the first two and listen and react well to the others.
Phil Knox punctuates his book with engaging accounts of success and failure. Story bearing has the potential to change the world of those around you.
"This review is based on Phil Knox’s recent Spring Harvest talk expounding this title and book. As story-telling was extremely effective in telling the gospel in the New Testament, so us sharing our story, along with God’s story, will prove irrefutable in our spreading gospel messages amongst those close to us. But we need to be prepared, which is a major theme of Phil Knox. So he gives us some key questions to which he suggests we have ready answers prepared. He also encourages us to listen well, to ask key probing questions as a result, and to be a non-anxious presence among our friends in troubled times. I found this an inspiring message!"
