“Questioning Evangelism” by Randy Newman is a good title for anyone looking for ways to better engage unbelievers with the gospel. Around 260 pages, the book covers many topics, such of which include:
1. Using questions is more effective for having a dialogue than just giving a direct gospel presentation.
2. 4 lessons to learn when using wisdom to witness to others.
3. 5 principles for demolishing spiritual strongholds.
4. We cannot avoid discussing the exclusive claims of Christianity.
5. Responding to why God allows evil.
6. 4 factors that increase the likelihood of someone believing in Jesus Christ.
7. 3 principles to include when discussing homosexuality.
8. 5 suggestions for addressing the “hypocrites in the church” question and accusation.
9. 3 steps towards coming more compassionate towards unbelievers.
10. Suggestions for when to be silent, when to talk, and how to be an effective listener.
The book is very readable, smoothly transitions from chapter to chapter, and contains excellent information on a better way of witnessing to others instead of merely giving a canned presentation. I can definitely see where this book may be combined with witnessing programs such as Evangelism Explosion and FAITH. Will be a valuable reference.
I was given a review copy by Kregel Publications in exchange for a fair review.
