You have a story to tell. This book will help you tell it. In this age of high-tech communication and endless formulas for successful evangelism, the most effective way to lead others to Christ is, surprisingly, the oldest, purest, and most natural--the same way that Jesus, Paul, and the early evangelists told the great Story of God's grace. In The Power of Story, Leighton Ford explains how you can experience the joy of leading others to Christ--simply by telling them the story of how God has impacted your life. "Evangelism isn't about formulas and programs," Ford says. "It's about what God has done in our lives. Evangelism is the result of God's Story intersecting with our story. He is the evangelist, not us." To illustrate what can happen when we share our story with those around us, Ford weaves through the book a tale of three friends whose lives are touched, one by one, by the power of God's Story. By carefully examining the words and actions of the Christian men and women who tell their stories to Ben, Judith, and Darrell, Ford reveals how a few simple words and small acts of Christian kindness can have eternal results. If you have become a part of the Story of God, then you will have a story to tell to those around you. "They are eager to hear it," writes Ford. "They are dying to hear it. Any Christian can be an evangelist, and every Christian should be."
