Item Description...
Studying Jesus' conversations with a diversity of people during his life, this director of the Francis Schaeffer Institute draws lessons and principles for modern evangelistic practice from the four Gospels, offering believers timeless wisdom in their approach to unbelievers.

Publishers Description

Studying Jesus' conversations with diverse people in his day, Jerram Barrs draws lessons and principles for attractively communicating the gospel to unbelievers in our day.

Living in a culture that is opposed to Christianity tempts God's people to conform, to retreat, to be silent. But Jesus showed the way to live faithfully before an unbelieving world.

As the greatest evangelist, Jesus exemplified how to attract people to the gospel. He modeled how to initiate spiritual conversations full of grace and truth. Christian evangelism, then, both in theory and practice, must be shaped by his pattern.

Seeking to articulate the passions and principles present in Christ's life and words, longtime L'Abri staff member Jerram Barrs has studied Jesus' diverse encounters with people throughout the Gospels. Each chapter of Learning Evangelism from Jesus recounts one of those stories, draws useful lessons for readers' lives and communication of the gospel, and concludes with questions for further reflection and application. This highly practical book will guide Christians in how to live before unbelievers and how to love them into the kingdom, just as Jesus did.

Beneficial tool of reflection but limited angle  Oct 22, 2009
I purchased learning evangelism from Jesus after reading "the Heart of Evangelism" by the same author. The idea of learning evangelism from Jesus appealed to me as extremely sound. But I was a bit disappointed. The author selected some accounts as representative of the evangelism of Jesus and each chapter is dedicated to pondering one account. I found that the author selected mostly accounts that were similar and support his views, with the result that the whole is unbalanced. Often, I thought that the author imported declarations in his analysis that had more to do with modern Western evangelical theology than was shown to issue from Jesus' teaching and example. But in all fairness, he makes many very good points too. Though I have been frustrated by what seems to me an obvious interpretative slant and selectiveness, it still caused me as a reader to ponder these accounts, even on points where I disagreed with the author. So, as long as someone is ready to weigh the author's points carefully and not just swallow everything (especially as it agrees with what culture wants us to make of Jesus), then the reader may find the trip beneficial. I have. The Heart of Evangelism was much better though.
Refreshing!  Sep 30, 2009
This book is a good read. There are reminders that are all throughout this book on how Christ conducted Himself with the "sinner." It is so saturated with the Scriptures and history. The book also makes one look at the internal perspective of himself, you can not help to examine yourself as you read this. It was a great reminder to me that our example is Christ. How did Jesus share with the unbelieving? Was he cold and indifferent towards them? Did He separate Himself from the sinners as so many confessing Christians in the churches do today? Christ did not bypass God's law, as is much taught in today's message of salvation. He spoke the law to their sinful hearts, yet He did so with compassion and mercy. He offered them hope. I highly recommend this book to those who have been cold towards your neighbors, those of different religions, different cultures, and those who have so much sin in their life and see no hope. I also recommend this book to those who sit in the pews with their heads high and with their stanch theology, to see Christ and walk in his example when it comes to the sinner. It's strange how easily we can forget how sinful, lost, wretched, and wicked we are. Still, somehow God sent people to us to share the gospel to us. We should remember, we are commanded to do the same. The Great Commission to the Church. Let's pray to do it more Christ like. Thanks for the book Jerram Barrs. Most of all thanks be to our Lord for using you to do so.
