This book flies in the face of almost everything you’ve ever read or heard about evangelism because it’s for and by people who don’t have the gift if evangelism.
Ordinary Christians spend hours every day in the most high-impact mission field in the world: their workplaces. A place where they are regularly in touch with people facing significant life questions. But to have an impact, they need a perspective that’s different from anything they’ve ever heard or read about evangelism. Out of this belief, Walt Larimore and I created Going Public with Your Faith.
Going Public with Your Faith, winner of the 2004 Christianity Today Book Award and the Silver Medallion Book Award, is written for Christians who may not have a gift for evangelism but want their lives to have an impact on the people around them. It describes evangelism as a process and helps readers understand how their words and life can easily draw customers, clients, and coworkers toward new life in Jesus Christ.
What Readers Say about Going Public
“The authors lay down the foundational principle concerning evangelism in a fresh and up-to-date way and then give practical steps toward effectively carrying out this commission in the workplace. I would recommend this book to anyone who - like me uggles with how to appropriately and effectively take Jesus to work, and who - like me - has often felt guilt associated with the misunderstanding that “secular work” is somehow inherently less noble than “full-time ministry.”
“If you have a low view of the work environment whereby you place little value or significance on the workplace and on Christians who work there, then you need to grab a copy of Bill Peel's and Walt Larimore's book, Going Public With Your Faith: Becoming a Spiritual Influence at Work, a.s.a.p. This is the first book on evangelism, which I have read, that focuses specifically on Christians in the workplace. Despite the lack of exposure in this area, my senses tell me this book contains the stuff that classics are made of.”
“I came away with a couple observations: 1) this is a tremendous relief for believers who think they need to engage in a "gospel sharing" conversation in order to be an effective witness; and, 2) this is an incredible call to seamless Christian living at home and work—living that is genuine, deliberate, and committed to demonstrating our faith over the long haul of relationship building.”
