Allow this book, with its focus on Peter's first letter, to change your expectations and your thinking.


Most people in the West have no intention of ever attending church. Indeed, many only use Christ's name as a swear word. And while some prominent churches are growing, much of this is transfer rather than true growth.



Yet many of our approaches to evangelism still assume a Christian mentality. We expect people to come to us when we put on a good church service.



We need to meet the unchurched where they are, in the context of everyday life, shifting the focus from putting on attractive events to creating attractive communities.

Super Practical
5 stars By Laura, May 24 2016
Great book with a lot of really practical frameworks for thinking about how we have conversations with other people and how we can introduce the gospel to those everyday conversations.
Really great as we try to connect the gospel to real life in a culture which increasingly does not know the Bible.
