Book Summary of Evangelism for the rest of Us by Mike Bechtle


Evangelism is “one beggar telling another beggar where to find food” (p. 119). Jesus wants His followers to tell others about Him and the good news of His life, death, and resurrection for sinners.

Every Christian should evangelize! But this does not mean that every Christian should evangelize in the same way. In fact, those who identify as introverts will find evangelism very difficult if they try to do it like they are extroverts. 

Most evangelistic methods today are geared towards those who are more extroverted. Those who are more introverted often feel guilty about not evangelizing according to popular methods. Sadly, too many Christians give up on evangelism altogether because they find it too difficult and awkward.  

However, God uses both introverts and extroverts in bringing lost sinners to Himself. We need to evangelize according to the personality and temperament given to us by God. When evangelism is done in line within one’s unique strengths, he or she can find true joy in witnessing for Christ.
