Pastors and church officials have brought forth a plethora of plans and pro grams to push Christians into witnessing. But Gentle Persuasion brings us a refreshingly simple approach--as simple as living.
Lifestyle evangelism is the theme of this valuable book. If one can bake a cherry pie or drive a carpenter's nail, he or she can penetrate his or her community for Christ. Aldrich presents practical, realistic principles that not only bring results but also fill the Christian's heart with assurance and joy in witnessing.
The author makes no attempt to fit all Christians into one witnessing mold. Evangelism means loving people in ways "appropriate to your giftedness" until they ask you why. Evangelism means developing and nurturing relationships that will lead friends to the Lord Jesus Christ.
Dr. Aldrich puts words together so well that the reader's mind fills with images that make the principles hard to for get. This book will be prized by individuals and churches who desire to present Christ in an attractive way to their relatives, neighbors, and communities. The principles spelled out in Gentle Persuasion work!
