Publisher’s Description

A book on evangelizing postmoderns by an experienced pastor-writer who is successfully involved in it.
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.
Evangelism as sales pitch, as conquest, as warfare, as ultimatum, as threat, as proof, as argument, as entertainment, as show, as monologue, as something you have to do.
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!

Reviews for More Ready Than You Realize

“One staff member at our store began reading this book, and kept talking about it. I began reading it–now another staff person is reading it. So we have this book back on the lunch-room table, with 4 markers stuck throughout the book! It has caused my staff to re-examine their way of dealing with wayward kids and friends.”

“My only question after reading Brian’s new book is: Does Alice have any other writing published? But seriously, Brian has helped rescue us from pushy sales techniques, 17 verses of “Just as I am” while we wait for those in the balcony, and of course big hair. This book make me want to reach for the volume knob…”
