Publisher's Description

The great commission - 'Go and make disciples of all nations ... teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you' - is far more long term and life consuming than we might imagine. It is more involved, more complex and more costly than we would like. It requires a broader appreciation of others' backgrounds and a deeper commitment to personal relationship. It demands that we live authentically, flexibly and humbly.

And yet it is a great privilege - living where God has placed us, we step out of our home-made security and pass on the good news to those with whom we live and work.

This book will help you step beyond your own familiarity with the Bible, church, doctrine, prayer and Christian jargon, and reach out to those for whom these things are completely foreign. Graham Orr's years of experience leading a church in urban Tokyo - one of the toughest places to do evangelism - have given him deep insight into how to reach those who have no knowledge of, or interest in, Christianity. Designed for those with busy urban lives, this book is full of stories, biblical insights, and ideas to put into practice.

'Are you a Christian who switches off when someone talks about evangelism? It's not your gift, you are too busy and your friends are not interested? Then this charming book is for you.’- Michael Green

‘encourages us to rethink how we can live as missionary Christians in our own culture… challenging, thought provoking and ultimately heart-warming’- Eddie Arthur

‘We are often told we need to approach the UK as a mission field. But often those voices make evangelism in a post-Christian culture seem even more difficult and we are put off. Graham’s short book changes all that. Drawing on his long and fruitful ministry in Tokyo, he shows us how and makes feel we can do it too.’ - Julian Hardyman

‘a book that will help every Christian to have a useful daily witness to Christ.’- Ray Porter

‘practical, spiritual and insightful ... will help us to witness more relevantly, more lovingly and with greater cultural awareness’- Martin Goldsmith, from the foreword.
