Review by Nathan Campbell

Does the idea of telling people about your faith in Jesus make you want to cringe in fear of sounding like a fool? Nathan Campbell is convinced this is the book for you! See his review for yourself and you might have found the antidote to your fear.

"The goal is to equip such Christians with ‘fresh insights’ so they become more confident and competent in evangelism, and walk away “thinking not just, “I can do that,” but also “I want to do that.”” This is a lofty and noble goal. I’d love just 10% of my community — or the church at large — to be driven to evangelism — to adopting an evangelistic lifestyle — the way this book depicts it. Were that to happen, there’d be plenty for the other 90% to do just in hanging around as part of the ‘plausibility structure’ of the Gospel."
