We live in a world that is in opposition to the gospel. Though there is a great temptation to succumb to the ease of conformity, to remain in the comfortable isolation of like-minded relationships, or to passively silence and personalize our faith, we have a much more significant calling.
Learning Evangelism from Jesus challenges readers to abandon their comfort zones for the sake of the gospel. In his prayer for us, Jesus desired that we might be in the world as he was in the world. Jerram Barrs examines the diverse conversations Jesus had with people in his day and draws principles to graciously and powerfully engage the world as we communicate the gospel today.
“This is not a book about evangelistic technique but about doing evangelism biblically. There is a difference! Jerram Barrs shows us that Jesus had no wooden formula that he followed but rather was about engaging people in the depths of their being. As a result, this is an unusually wise guide to doing evangelism. The great truths of the gospel shine forth undiminished while at the same time the recesses of the human heart are explored with real insight.”

“In his practical, biblical, and winsome style, Jerram Barrs challenges us to humbly share good news with our friends who are far from God.”
