Book Summary of Out of the Saltshaker and into the World by Rebecca Manley Pippert


Evangelism. The very word invokes anxiety in many of us. For some, it’s the dread of being asked a question we don’t know the answer to. For others it’s the feeling that our communication skills are inadequate. However, evangelism is more than a set of techniques or steps to check off. It is the story of who Christ is and what He has done in our lives. Evangelism is a way of life.

Practicing evangelism necessitates studying Jesus’ life, values, and lifestyle and how the Holy Spirit works in and through us. The role of truth and how we can speak in the power of God’s truth are just as essential. Out of the Saltshaker and Into the World provides a solid foundation for communicating the gospel, beginning with understanding what it is. 

The culture is lost and searching for meaning and purpose. Techniques and programs will not fill the void, but Christ will. As Christians, we are to be salt and light, living our lives in light of what Jesus has done for us. Evangelism is merely an extension of who we are, a people transformed by Christ.
