Description

What if "evangelism" meant just being yourself?
If the gospel really is good news, why do most Christians avoid evangelism? Why is "witnessing" often a negative experience, for both the sender and receiver? Wouldn't it be great if you could communicate the good news without having to become a spiritual salesperson?
What if...
-you didn't have to make a speech in order to "witness"?
-you could use everyday experiences to nudge others closer to Jesus?
-the things you're already doing "counted" as evangelism?
Evangelism can be as normal as asking great questions and paying attention to the people Jesus misses most. It involves doing things you already do, but with a little more intentionality. Just by being yourself and becoming unusually interested in others, you can discover that people will" ask you" about Jesus.
This isn't another program or pitch. It's a handbook on how to make real connections with the people formerly known as lost.
Think of it as evangelism for the rest of us.
