Item Description...
Overview
Tom Clegg's approach to evangelism nearly got him stabbed...and some might say he would have deserved it. For years, Tom struggled with his approach to reach people. A passionate follower of Christ, he also wrestled with something else. A deep, uncomfortable nag--one that questions what's really at the heart of a man's motivations. Is it love...or obligation? As Tom unravels his story, set against local and global landscapes, he captures the rich meaning and truth in Christ's story...often revealed in unsuspecting moments. Tom's journey is an engaging memoir about discovering faith--layer by layer--and living so it resonates with others. You won't want to miss what he's learned.
Includes:
Powerful, up-to-date statistics on culture and religion
Natural, fun ways to engage people in conversation
How to remove the "fear" of reaching out--and become a better listener
Tips for connecting with people through relationships, hobbies, and at work
Ideas to make your church a center for life transformation
Plus...
Fun movie clips
Discussion questions
Extra resources

From the authors of Group's best-selling Lost in America.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great book!  Apr 22, 2010
This is a great book that emphasizes the importance of relationships with others in bringing people to Christ. Just inviting someone to church doesn't cut it anymore. You must live out the gospel, invest in the lives of others, and be ready to lead those closest to you into a relationship with Christ when God presents you with an opportunity. As an elder at my church, I recommend this to all church leaders seeking to ignite the growth of their church and breathe life into their community.
 
How to find the Missing in America  Oct 27, 2009
In the reading of Missing in America the reader will find that more than a few people are missing, and missing out. The author does a good job of presenting to us the people that are needing to be found, and a reasonable way for others to find them. If you are looking for a way to make your church work more effectively, and reach a broader person base, then this is the book for you. After reading it, you will keep it handy so you can share it with others.
 
What's love got to do with it?  Nov 17, 2008

With sincere apologies to the Lord for using a secular song to state the obvious of Tom Clegg's book...What's love got to do with it? EVERYTHING! Missing in America brings the reader back to the truly Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and provides practical ways in which to show and share that Good News.

You've heard people say, "I couldn't put it down." Well, I couldn't put this book down! While the text's an easy read, it's also a very thought provoking expose on how we "religious folk" can continue to drive away those who are seeking a real "relationship" with Jesus.

Missing in American illuminates everyday life happenings as opportunities to show the love of Jesus for the lost and dying of this world. Ask yourself this question: While in the marketplace of everyday life, how many people do I encounter who need a timely word of encouragement, a snippet of truth, a genuine smile, a listening nonjudgmental ear, a hand up, a statement of hope? You fill in the blank.

God is love, we are in Him, He is in us. Love. No programs, no formulas, no tracts, just sincere love for people embodies the message of this work.

The awareness this book creates is one which clearly demonstrates the message of another well known song...They Will Know We Are Christians by our Love.
 
Fantastic  Oct 25, 2008
This is a fantastic book! Clegg & Bird challenged my view of evangelism - it's not what we do to people, but what happens when we, as Christ followers, are with them. Seen in that light, relationships with people outside our church walls are crucial. The book offers convincing arguments and practical ways to do just that. Church members and church leadership teams will benefit tremendously from this book!
 
Realistic and riveting  Aug 22, 2008
Be prepared for a completely realistic--and riveting--way of impacting the world for Christ. The authors toss away the aggressive and usually annoying method of 'bringing people to the Lord'. There's no door-knocking, tract throwing or memorized scripts for sealing the deal with the Holy Spirit. Instead, readers will find a refreshing approach to carrying out the Lord's command to go into all the world with the Good News.

Through honest and personal examples that will connect with most readers, the authors peel away the plastic coating that has been applied to the Gospel. In its place is a message that can be touched with human hands, as the love and mercy of Christ are shown in real relationships. In these pages, the mission field moves to individual neighborhoods, workplaces and even the next soccer game. There are practical steps offered to engage your family, friends and casual acquaintances in meaningful conversations that can have eternal significance.

The book offers a strong motivational force to embrace the people around you with genuine love. It's through these sincere encounters that the Holy Spirit builds bridges that connect to God.

Each chapter ends with several insightful questions that are perfect for personal or group study. The authors also make movie recommendations that can further explain the chapter's theme in contemporary situations. Most noteworthy is the authors' ability to open the reader's eyes to the field white for harvest and right in their own sphere of influence.
