Brenda Salter McNeil explores what you can learn from Jesus' encounter with the woman at the well. She explains how gender, race and social status can be a barrier to evangelism. Brenda tells her own story of coming to faith, and talks about how she relates to others as a Christian.Meet Jesus and Sam.^^Evangelist and teacher Brenda Salter McNeil thinks evangelism that only introduces people to Jesus is incomplete. The picture is much larger than that, she claims: Christ's death and resurrection reconcile us to God and to each other across gender, race and social lines.^^Jesus' encounter with the Samaritan woman, introduced here as Brenda's friend Sam, gives you the full picture of gospel reconciliation--reconciliation to God and to each other. In her powerful, prophetic way, Brenda expounds their interaction recorded in John 4 and shares her own story of coming to Christ and learning to relate to other Christians. A Credible Witness tells you why both types of reconciliation are necessary, and moves you to be a person whose evangelism happens through a right relationship with God and others.^^"In today's world," Brenda writes, "we too are called to embody more than one type of reconciliation. The good news brings us to God, and it also brings life and healing to a broken, dying and divided world. Anything less is not the gospel."Foreword by Tony Campolo^Acknowledgements^Introduction: Becoming a Credible Witness^1 Know My Context to Know My Story^2 Begin with a Divine Mandate^3 Engage in Intentional Interaction^4 Relinquish Power and Embrace Need^5 Take Risks to Reach Out^6 Develop Reciprocity and Interdependence^7 Go Beyond the Superficial^8 Be Authentic and Transparent in Worship^9 Make a Life-Changing Decision^10 Take Action to Be Countercultural^11 Be a Bridge Builder^Conclusion: Taking the Witness Stand^Appendix: A Leader's Guide to Restoring Credibility^Further Reading^Notes
