Learning Evangelism from Jesus

A couple of blurbs for Jerram Barrs's latest book, Learning Evangelism from Jesus:
“This is not a book about evangelistic technique but about doing evangelism biblically. There is a difference! Beginning with some of the everyday scenes in the gospels and then examining some of the parables, Jerram Barrs shows us that Jesus had no wooden formula which he followed, but rather was about engaging people in the depths of their being. As a result, this is an unusually wise guide to doing evangelism. The great truths of the gospel shine forth undiminished while at the same time the recesses of the human heart are explored with real insight.”
David F. Wells, Distinguished Research Professor, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary

“I can think of no other living educator who better embodies the gospel’s tough love combined with its unconditional acceptance of flawed people than Jerram Barrs. In this wonderfully moving account of Jesus’ approach to evangelism, Professor Barrs shows us the ways in which the Lord’s message penetrates deep into the human heart, uncovering its darkest secrets, while always defending the dignity of its owner.”
William Edgar, Professor of Apologetics, Westminster Theological Seminary
