    A book on evangelism that barely gives Jesus a mention is a strange thing Walter Brueggeman splits up the issue into 3 main categories evangelism to the outsider, to the jaded insider, and to the young For someone whose expertise is in the Old Testament its no surprise that the main texts are all Old Testament texts, and while we can learn plenty from the Old Testament it seemed to stretch the exegesis at points in formulating an understanding of evangelism based on the Old Testament alone.

    I hesitate to give this five stars because I am probably mucha conservative evangelical than Brueggemann, but it was a great read, very interesting, somewhat profound and thought provoking, and had some great practical applications It made me want to readBrueggemann, which I did So far I greatly value his work but am still on the fence trying to figure out the implications of some of his conclusions and even his presuppositions that get him there.
