Have you ever been scared by the daunting and seemingly insurmountable task of sharing your faith with others? What about this Christian duty terrifies you? In most cases the answer is people are unsure of how to share the gospel with others no matter who they are. They know what the gospel contains, they even have a heart to share it with others, yet they know not how to share it in a way that is organic with others. In the recently released book, Sharing Jesus Without Freaking Out, by Alvin C. Reid, this concept is explained in great detail.
Reid explains that evangelism gets over-complicated in our society. We get so caught up in the dynamics and gymnastic tricks that we forget the simplistic message of the Gospel. We forget the message of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ does not need to be jazzed up rather it needs to be explained others in organic conversational fashion. In the six chapters of this amazing book read does not write any new type of method of evangelism. Rather the Reid reminds Christians of how they were lead to righteousness by the good news of the Gospel. How they were led by one person telling them these truths of the only son of God and our need for salvation from sin.
Furthermore he explains how it is not only the words which we use to share the gospel that are important but demonstrating the life of Christ through our actions. Reid does go in-depth in this book a simple summary can be seen in the book’s final Chapter, Making Friends Not Visits. For the entirety of the book prepares a Christian, no matter where they are in their walk, to go out and love others by sharing the gospel in organic fashion which is what God created us to do. Have conversations with others, share the truth of his word, and have God transform their hearts for him. I highly recommend this book to any and all Christians who desire to evangelize to those in their lives.
