My favorite books of 2010 (part 1)

This is the first in a series of posts covering my two favorite non-fiction, fiction, and children’s books.

First up: Non-Fiction.

Our community group at BC studied Questioning Evangelism by Randy Newman.  I’ve been through numerous courses about how to share the Gospel with people and have found every single one lacking.  None of the methodologies worked for me, and they often felt like attempts to manipulate people into a religious decision.

Questioning Evangelism is without a doubt the best book I have ever read about sharing my faith with other people.  Newman is a good writer and clear communicator.  The strongest point of the book is Newman’s common sense approach to talking about difficult and contentious topics.  It has changed the way I talk with people.

If you don’t know how to deal with defending Christianity or you just want some practical advice about how to love people and have good conversations with them, I heartily recommend this book. Buy it from Amazon by clicking here.

You can listen to a few talks given by Newman at Covenant Life Fellowship.
