Questioning Evangelism, by Randy Newman
Engaging People’s Hearts the way Jesus Did
About the Book: You don’t need to memorize evangelical formulas or answers. You just have to be willing to ask. There was something different about the way Jesus communicated with the lost: He didn’t force answers upon people, He asked questions. So why don’t we? Following Christ’s lead, Randy Newman has been using a questioning style of evangelism for decades. In this provocative book, he provides practical insights to help Christians engage others in meaningful spiritual conversations. He challenges us to examine how we think about people, their questions, and our crucial message.
This second edition includes a new preface reflecting on the popularity of this perennial best seller and what its success has taught Newman about the effectiveness of this extraordinary method.
My Thoughts: This book was sent to me by the publisher and to be honest I wasn’t sure what it would be about when I requested it. Luckily I did take a deeper look though. Instead of just bashing Evangelism Randy Newman takes a real look at the pros and cons. I was impressed with how open the book is and found the last few chapters to be especially enlightening.
