Read full description of the books The Best Kept Secret of Christian Mission: Promoting the Gospel with More Than Our Lips:What a practical book to persuade you that we can promote the Gospel in so many everyday ways that you may have never even thought about before!: flexible social relationships, financial support of the gospel, prayer, good works, the praise of God in church, answering for the faith, and the work of evangelists. But John also grounds the mission in this truth: there is one God, and we point others to know Him by ourselves embodying Jesus Christ, friend of sinners. He also spends a large chunk in the middle of the book to answer the question: "What is the Gospel?" and gives some helpful "Gospel bites" and a modern retelling of the Gospel as appendices.
My favourite part would have to be the stories John shares as examples of ways people have promoted the Gospel around him which have personally led him to know Jesus, and stories of friends and people around him. (Don't know if I was just tired after finishing night shift, but I cried after reading the last story, which was actually an amalgam of a hundred different stories of faith John has heard over the years.)
Finally, this book is written in such a warm, clear, and good-Aussie-natured humour which made it really easy to read :) Highly recommended for any & all Christians!
