Instead of using scripted approaches to sharing the gospel, say the authors Christians should focus on disciple making as a part of their lifestyle, sharing their faith naturally within their network of friends and relatives. Throughout the history of the church, this method has been the most successful in leading people to faith in Christ and membership in the church. This approach is effective for witnessing because it: -- provides a natural framework for sharing the Good News-- makes people more receptive to the gospel-- allows for natural support when the friend or relative comes to Christ-- results in more effective assimilation of converts into the church-- tends to win families-- provides a constantly enlarging source of contacts
The Arns offer ideas for reaching friends and family, insights on how congregations can support evangelism, and suggestions for more effective incorporation of converts into the church community.
