Seeker-Sensitive Approach to Christian Evangelism

The book starts out with a section on why becoming a contagious Christian is important, particularly if you want to embrace a seeker-sensitive approach to evangelism. The remainder of the book unpacks the following formula: High Potency plus close proximity plus clear communication equal maximum impact. This book is one I've read several times before purchasing it on Audible. It's an important book I will return to again and again and I wanted to have it read to me. For me, it's the single best book on evangelism I have ever read.

Absolutely Life changing!

Would you listen to Becoming a Contagious Christian again? Why?

Yes, but I don't know when. Audible has been amazing to me. Every month I get another credit to get another book, but I usually buy 2 or 3. Back to the book... I don't know about another whole listen through... maybe some parts to reference here and there... so I will say

What other book might you compare Becoming a Contagious Christian to and why?

I am not sure. This is the first book I have obtained of its kind. It strengthens your faith and lets you know how to introduce it into those around you's lives. Unobtrusively and or pushy. Like I said... no other book can touch this one (so far).

Have you listened to any of Bill Hybels and Don Reed ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No I haven't, this is my first one. I would definitely check them out in the future though.

Bill's words and Don's voice... amazing combination.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I did, but I couldn't... Usually I listen to audible books before bed, or on the way to work. With this one... I couldn't wait to take the train again to go to work ... HOWEVER... coming back home I would continue to listen and even put my iphone on its docking station with a big speaker and listen to it through lunch, dinner... cleaning the house... everything... I couldn't put it down!
