Just finished “Speaking of Jesus: The Art of Non-Evangelism” by Carl Medearis. It was a pretty quick read and it was one of the best books I’ve read on evangelism. Thats not saying much… I’ve only read a handful of such books. But for anyone who has any inclination towards hoping to lead other folks to Jesus, I’d highly recommend it. Admittedly, its a rather minimalist approach to evangelism as well as Christian faith in general, and I think thats why I like it. At any rate, this guy Carl has spent his entire adult life as a missionary in Lebanon “evangelizing” Muslims. He’s got the credentials. Meanwhile, he portrays himself as someone admired and befriended by even the sharpest critics of Christians.
