Product Description


"Fuller's method is the best there is. He combines reading a chapter, watching someone explain the concept on DVD, and physically doing exercises out of a workbook (or on a whiteboard in a classroom). If you want to learn Hebrew and your don't have access to a schoolobuy the book, workbook, DVDs and get studying. If you're teaching a class, integrate this into your semester, your students will thank you. You might ask how I know this works. Well, I was one of Fuller's students and now I'm doing a PhD in Semitic languages so it must have worked for me. (P.S. And no, he hasn't paid me to say these things. I say it because I want to help you learn Hebrew and/or be the best teacher possible.)"--Charles Halton"" (08/01/2006)

Format: Paperback
Randy: How's the weather down there?
Grandma Belle: How could the weather be in Florida in the middle of July?
Randy: How's your family?
Aunt Vivian: Compared to whom?
In this way Randy Newman starts off his book on evangelism. Responding to a question with a question was the daily routine for Newman as he grew up in a Jewish home. Yet he points to Jesus, the master evangelist, as the supreme example in this. For Jesus answering a question with a question was the norm; a clear concise direct answer was a rarity. Take the rich young ruler for example - if ever there was a great opportunity to demonstrate how to explain the gospel this was it. Yet when asked, "What must I do to inherit eternal life?", Jesus responds, "Why do you call me good?"
Newman argues that so often we are too quick to answer, and that as we answer with our perfectly accurate answer, they aren't listening anyway. His point is that we need to engage their minds as well as simply present the truth. He says, "Answering a question with a question... brings to the surface the questioner's assumptions. It also takes the pressure off you... this is important because as long as we're on the defensive, the questioners are not really wrestling with the issues. They're just watching us squirm."
Throughout the book Newman illustrates with excerpts from his own work as a college evangelist over the last 20 years. With great openness he shows, not only the times he got it right, but also the times he got it wrong, and the lessons he learned from each occasion. He also gives practical suggestions throughout for questions you could ask, as well as giving dialogues to show how a conversation might go. These illustrations go along way to making the book practical, applicable, and easy to read.

Format: Paperback
This is one of the best Christian books I've read in the past five years, and you should definitely buy it if you're a Christian who wants to respond sensitively to the questions put to you by unbelievers.
Newman makes the observation that when Jesus is asked questions (eg the rich man in Mark: "What must I do to inherit eternal life?"), more often than not, Jesus responds by asking a question himself.
This is a great way to approach evangelistic conversations because it takes pressure off the person being questioned, helps the questioner to see inconsistencies in his or her own thinking without getting into a slanging match, and enables a much more natural and thought-provoking dialogue to ensue.
So many books on Christian apologetics concentrate on giving Christians 'pat' answers to memorise - but this is so much better. It's more a general way of thinking than it is a 'method'. And it really helps to avoid answers that are patronising, misguided or simply inappropriate.
Newman includes a number of imaginary dialogues with non-Christians, and tackles some of the biggest issues, including suffering, homophobia, pluralism, hypocrisy.
Thorough, biblical, faithful, and loving, it really makes you want to get out there and share the gospel with people.

Format: Paperback
There are a lot of very compelling reviews about this book, so I won't say a lot here. But I appreciate Newman's ability to offer his method and apologetic without trashing the other methods. His history in Campus Crusade has obviously given him a passion for sharing the Gospel message, and that passion comes through loud and clear in this book.

On the otherhand, Newman frees the reader/evangelist/disciple to listen and ask thought provoking questions rather than always filling in the blanks for people. So much teaching/learning in modern Christianity is done by filling in's a shame we don't think more. This book encourages thinking.

I particularly appreciate the author's personal Jewish history shared throughout the book, those facts and stories are enlightening, helpful and at times humorous. It's a good book.
