Increasing Your Faith-Sharing Ability Is Possible!
Lutheran Hour Ministries has a great read for those wanting to empower their witness. New from InterVarsity Press is The Reluctant Witness: Discovering the Delight of Spiritual Conversations. Written by Lutheran Hour Ministries' Content Development Manager Don Everts, this book examines why we speak less these days about Jesus—and gives hope for what we can do to improve the situation.
Drawing from ample research gathered by Barna Group, The Reluctant Witness takes an honest look at the state of our conversations about faith and God. Throughout the book, Everts weaves loads of data into an easy-to-read narrative to form a compelling whole. He gives the reader vital insights into why things are as they are and offers much-needed encouragement on how they can be different when we talk about Jesus.
Early in life Everts simply assumed that spiritual conversations were going to be difficult at best. But his surprising—and sometimes embarrassing—stories affirm what Scripture and the latest research reveal: spiritual conversations can actually be a delight, a real joy. Readers will come away with a fresh grasp of the possibilities of talking about their faith and will appreciate the best practices offered on how to become an eager conversationalist.
