The Lazy Approach to Evangelism: A Simple Guide for Conversing with Nonbelievers
Unfortunately, the biblical command of apologetics in evangelism is often neglected and misunderstood within our churches today. Some think it’s optional; others assume it’s merely arguing with nonbelievers, while others outright deny its pragmatic (not to mention biblical!) application. As a result, the church has become a largely irrelevant, ignorable institution within the public sphere of ideas. But this need not be the case.
Rather than learn new gospel presentations, we must learn how to have gospel conversations. Evangelism doesn’t have to be intimidating or difficult, but in a growing culture of doubt, it must be effective. That is the aim of this book. To equip you with the tools necessary for initiating and navigating fruitful conversations with nonbelievers in a secular society. This is the role of apologetics in evangelism. This is an act of worship as disciples of Jesus. This is spiritual warfare. This is The Lazy Approach to Evangelism.
