A book on evangelizing postmoderns by an experienced pastor-writer who is successfully involved in it.
WARNING: This is not just another book on evangelism. It’s a simple idea of evangelism through friendship first, and the opportunities to share your faith that follow. It will bring friendships you already have to a new levels, and create opportunities for new, authentic friendships with those you will eventually meet.

IN: Disciple-making as conversation, as friendship, as influence, as invitation, as companionship, as challenge, as opportunity, as conversation, as dance, as something you get to do.
You’re more ready for this than you realize, and so are your friends!
