By Carl Medearis
In a diverse society where tolerance is preached as the highest of cultural values, it's tough for you to find "acceptable" ways to share your faith. In fact, Christianity is now a highly polarizing word — followers of Jesus are known far more for what we're against than what we're for. And that makes it extra hard for you as a teenager to engage friends and classmates in conversations about the most important thing in your life.
What we are for is a person — his name is Jesus. And Jesus is not only our salvation, but also the most compelling person who has ever walked the earth. But that epic truth is overshadowed by the distractions surrounding Christianity's public face. It's been turned into a political/social/moral word, not a simple description of Christ-followers.
In this edition of his bestselling book Speaking of Jesus, author Carl Medearis maps out a path that will forever change the way you think about "sharing my faith." Using strategies and ideas gleaned from his decades of experience as a missionary in the Middle East, Carl gives you new vocabulary and a new way of engaging the people in your life — you'll discover the freedom "speaking of Jesus" brings, flavoring all your interactions with Jesus' compelling presence.
