"Contagious But Not Quarantined" is a great evangelistic tool whether you are a mature Christian or a new Christian. This book is very easy to read and practical. The author uses personal examples and simple to understand strategies that will help anyone to realize their potential to preach the gospel in a real, down to earth way. He uses the Word of God in such a way as to encourage you to share with others the love of Jesus. You will want to read this book over and over again. When I first read this book, I couldn't put it down until I finished it.
No pressure evangelism. Contagious But Not Quarantined is Tim Fisher's second book. While his first, It's a Sign: Seeing Jesus in the Ordinary touched on the miracles of Jesus in the Gospel of John, Contagious explores a simple way of sharing your faith that is not overly aggressive. The process of evangelism is so simple that many people already practice some of the principles without even knowing it. Gone are the days of yelling at passerbys with a bullhorn. Gone are the days of handing out the insipid tracts. Fisher's book offers practical advice based on our characteristics. Once you've learned the acronym PINCH, you'll discover that evangelism doesn't have to be the scary, nail-biting scarefest it once was. Numerous and often humerous stories accompany the steps toward becoming contagious. (Where people want to catch the faith that you have in Jesus Christ). This book belongs right beside Bill Hybels' Just Walk Across the Room.
My friend Tim Fisher writes about his soul-winning nightmare. He was a once a youth pastor, young and passionate for Christ. Wanting to help his teens become "soul-winners", he developed SWAT (Soul Winning Advanced Training) though he confesses he wasn't so advanced himself. One night he took his youth group to a local shopping mall, with a plan to approach strangers, engage them in conversation and ask them to participate in a three-question survey leading to a spiritual conversation. After an hour of this activity (not having been arrested by mall cops) the group headed to McDonald's to celebrate. As they sat down to eat, Tim noticed a young woman sitting by herself - "a prime candidate for further evangelistic work." Approaching the woman, he noticed that she wore a cross on her necklace - a conversation-starter! Tim writes: "After clearing my throat, I asked in a manner as natural as I could muster one of the most unnatural questions you would ask a perfect stranger. `I noticed your necklace and was wondering what the cross means to you?' She replied somewhat timidly... 'It reminds me of my mother, who gave it to me.' With an urgency, as if the flames of hell were about to engulf her at any moment, I blurted out, `Well, let me tell you what that cross means to me...' A few moments later, as I rapidly spoke lest I forget something, the young woman got up shaking her head and walked out, leaving me bewildered as to why anyone would reject eternity so." Tim has come a long way since then. In his new book "Contagious But Not Quarantined" he suggests much more natural ways to share God's love. It's a book well worth reading, and I highly recommend it if you're serious about sharing God's love with others.
