New phone app provides training in conversational evangelism
This app distills the experience that Doug Pollock shares in his books and seminars. Its purpose is to equip Christians to share faith appropriately and conversationally. It is not intended for non-yet-followers to download or look at (unlike the Talking About Jesus app). These principles apply both offline and online.
Book review: God Space, by Doug Pollock. Effective conversational evangelism.
Most of us struggle to connect with outsiders and have meaningful conversations about faith. We may have been taught to use formulaic methodogies to steer conversations and proclaim set-piece 'one size fits all' gospel presentations. If ever these worked moderately well in times past, they don't now. Pollock’s book explains his concept of creating a conversational ‘God Space’ in which to engage, by learning to notice and listen, and thereby avoid a range of conversation killers or hijacking methods that control a conversation.
