Talk the Walk
This attitude-altering book invites Christians to cultivate boldness and humility in communicating gospel truth. By uncovering self-righteousness and spiritual arrogance, Talk the Walk by pastor and author Steve Brown shatters stereotypes and helps believers consider how they present the good news without watering it down. The Christian faith is true, and while we may be right on issues of salvation and theology, we may miss the less articulated truths of humility, love, and forgiveness. We live in a culture that is increasingly hostile to Christians and their faith. Talk the Walk unpacks the call to go out into the world and share faith by being truthful and winsome. By helping men and women love others out of a deeper love in Christ the one who first loved us Talk the Walk helps Christians present the gospel clearly and with compassion. Take a step back and look at others perceptions. Explore the tools necessary to accomplish an attitude change of confidence and humility, repentance and truth. Share the message of Christ without distorting it. Speak confidently without being cold. By operating out of humble gratitude for the gospel, begin to talk the walk of Christian faith, reflecting the love and truth of Jesus.
My thoughts: I always wonder how books like this are going to go, since I feel like their is a fine line between standing up for what is right without being self righteous and insufferable about it. I felt like this book, over all, does a great job showing us how that can be done. I really appreciate how he summed the whole book up in the final chapter (though it's worth it to read through the book to get there!). This is an excellent book about witnessing for Jesus without being in peoples faces.
I receive this book from New Growth Press. This is my honest review and is in no way influenced by receiving a complimentary copy.
