The Best Kept Secret of Christian Mission: Promoting the Gospel with More Than Our LipsZondervan #ad - Every facet of our lives can be used by God to promote the news of his power and mercy. This book comes out of years of reflection, failures, and some successes in the task of reaching out to others with the gospel. Without diminishing or downplaying the importance of speaking the gospel, John Dickson shows that, on the other hand, downplaying the range of activities that promote Christ to the world has its own set of problems.
While not all christians are called and gifted to become evangelists, good deeds, financial partnership, godly lives, we are all called to promote the gospel through a wide range of activities—prayer, public worship, daily conversation, etc. With and without our lips. As readers engage with this book, they will be inspired to see the whole of life as significant for bringing the gospel to the world, grapple with its arguments and hear the stories of people coming to faith, and they will be liberated out of guilt and self-consciousness in evangelism into becoming perfectly natural promoters of Jesus Christ.
Equally, it can make those who do have a flair for speaking feel as though they are fulfilling Christ’s mission just by talking. In this practical guide to the biblical art of sharing your faith, John Dickson offers refreshing insight into the ways that all Christians can and should be involved in spreading the good news of Jesus.

Many christians think of the task of mission as an entirely verbal activity, when perhaps the best kept secret of New Testament teaching about mission is that it involves a whole range of activities that explicitly promote Christ to the world and draw others to him, and only a few of them involve speaking.
The Message of Salvation: By God's Grace, for God's Glory Bible Speaks Today Bible ThemesIVP Academic #ad - But each facet directs us by turns to a glory far exceeding itself.

We think we know what it means. If this world is indeed lost, then understanding and proclaiming the grammar of God's gracious salvation exceeds by bounds the significance of a Human Genome Project or any other great human endeavor.
