For many evangelism is a difficult ask. We often dread talking about our faith. Not because we are ashamed of it but because we are afraid of coming over as sounding a bit naff. However, there is good news - and not only in the Gospel - Mark Roques has written a book that will help us share our faith without being naff.
This book will revolutionise how we evangelise. Roques shows us creative ways in which to share or faith. His basic premise is that we need to tell stories that provoke and ask questions that expose religious beliefs. He takes his cue from Jesus’ approach. Roques shows how Jesus used humour and stories to reveal the heart of God. Roques shows how we can do the same. He draws upon his vast experience as a school teacher and as a speaker to provide a myriad of examples of how this can be done. He gives illustrations of how to communicate awe and wonder, to expose and challenge contemporary idolatries. As suggested by the title of the book Roques makes good use of examples from James Bond films, from rats and from a bed of nails.
If you want to share the good news of Jesus in a way that engages, inspires and brings glory to Jesus - you will do no better than drawing on the resources that Roques provides in this book.
