Randy Newman: Witnessing to Family Members, Close Friends, and Others Who Know You Well

Bringing the Gospel HomeBringing the Gospel Home:
Witnessing to Family Members, Close Friends, and Others Who Know You Well
By Randy Newman (Crossway, 2011)

“We sometimes present our gospel-masterpiece in a context that belies our message. We speak of measureless love, unmerited grace, and infinite goodness, but our tone of voice, demeanor, and lifestyles convey the exact opposite. We want people to quiet their hearts so they can hear the music of the gospel, but we’re performing in a context of judgmentalism. We want them to feel loved by God, but they feel unloved by us. We want them to be amazed by grace, but they can’t get past the smell of condemnation.

“Perhaps we need to work on the context as well as the content of our evangelism.” —Randy Newman, from the book
