Lets you explore principles linked to how Jesus shared the good news: on the road, in the home on the lake or up a mountain. This book presents the Gospels and follows His example, to make it possible, natural and a positive experience as we pray. It includes practical exercises to explore with a friend or wider group.
Faith is personal, but it is not private. We are Christians today because other people shared their faith in the past. We might think the good news mainly came to us through Peter, Paul and the other great preachers that have followed since. In fact the Gospel travelled down the centuries in a variety of ways: chiefly through ordinary Christians doing ordinary things made extraordinary by the Holy Spirit. We are part of a 2000 year old chain. This book is written for all those who feel they cannot share their faith, or have never read about doing it before now. Together we shall explore principles linked to how Jesus shared the good news: on the road, in the home on the lake or up a mountain. We shall read the Gospels and follow his example, to make it possible, natural and a positive experience as we pray. Each chapter includes practical exercises to explore with a friend or wider group.
If you want to know how to evangelise, study the Gospels. This is the simple and profound truth that Jim communicates with clarity and in an accessible way for all those wanting to more actively engage in home mission. Pope Benedict XVI has repeatedly invited all Christians to participate in the 'New Evangelisation' - one that is new in means, ardour and expression. Sharing Faith the Jesus Way will be an aid to many in responding to that invitation which is so essential to the Church's future mission. Clare Ward, Home Mission Advisor, Catholic Bishops' Conference of England and Wales Provides Christ-filled insights plus practical and spiritual stimulus to get us naturally introducing our friends to Jesus the Jesus way with supernatural consequences. David Spriggs, Bible and Church Consultant, Bible Society Not a formula or a programme, just a challenge to live differently... I recommend it to all Christians who want to make a difference where they are. Ian Bunce, Head of Mission Department, Baptist Union of Great Britain
