Reading Time: 13 minutes This busy Easter season, Ben Mandrell wants evangelicals to see him as a valid source of advice for learning to evangelize without losing one’s friends. But he has no idea how to do it himself.
Reading Time: 10 minutes On the way minus side, this initiative could result in someone getting stalked. But there is at least a plus side: The flocks still hate personal evangelism. An app that prods and pushes them to do stuff won’t make them like it more.
Reading Time: 6 minutes Hi and welcome back! Yesterday, we covered the so-called Testimony of Josephus. Many Christians think that Josephus provides PROOF YES PROOF that their historical claims are true.

Reading Time: 10 minutes Out of everywhere evangelicals seek to make sales, Japan might be one of their most resistant evangelism markets. But three dishonest evangelical couples have recently decided to use some beloved Japanese art forms to lure in unsuspecting marks: cosplay, fake collectibles, and a manga-style comic book called Manga Messiah.
Reading Time: 9 minutes Hi and welcome back! We’re quickly approaching the end of our Beach Reach training. Now, our trainers need us to know how to perform follow-up with our sales marks.

For many of us, though, his strategies caused us only immeasurable grief — first and foremost because evangelists lie freely about exactly what the costs are that we should be counting. Today, I’ll be counting the costs of the zealotry that Greg Stier desperately wants to push onto unwitting evangelical teens.
Reading Time: 6 minutes I noticed something recently about the way he talks about sales success, and now I can’t un-see this very dishonest-seeming way he has of describing what little success he enjoys with his very own strategy. In fact, his few successes can be described better as semi-sales rather than closed deals. Today, let me show you what I saw.
Reading Time: 8 minutes Today, let’s look at Lee Strobel’s totally real atheist friends — and how his own words completely destroy that claim.
Reading Time: 9 minutes Yesterday, I offered you an overview of the personal-level strategy he suggests, friendship evangelism. Today, I want to show you Lee Strobel’s absolutely callous and blatantly opportunistic twist on that old, old strategy.
Reading Time: 9 minutes Today, I’ll show you what friendship evangelism is — and what lies its practitioners tell themselves to justify inflicting it on others.
