Overview

Evangelism is difficult. Face it; most people just aren''t interested in hearing about Jesus. They are quite satisfied with their lives, quite content with their beliefs, and see no need to change. So how can you get them interested in the gospel?

In this readable and accessible book, evangelist Nick Pollard shows how to break through the barrier of disinterest. He shows why Jesus can and should make a difference for the people you know. And he shows how you can interest them in learning more about Jesus. Along the way, Pollard examines why people think the way they do and provides help for better understanding and challenging non-Christian worldviews. He also answers sketpics' tough questions, offers practical methods for explaining the gospel, and gives suggestions for leading others in their first steps to faith in Christ.

Evangelism may never be easy. But Nick Pollard's imaginative approach, infectious enthusiasm and field-tested advice will make it slightly less difficult.
