True Story, Evangelistic Presentation

I am reading a book by author James Choung called True Story: A Christianity Worth Believing In. This is the way he shares the Gospel message in 3 minutes, and then a followup video in another video. It is not reductionistic, but still is able to get the major point across in an understandable way! Let me know what you think and I will be blogging about the book as I finish it…

  • This is great. How did you find my blog?

    • I know your friend Jimmy. He sent me the link.

  • Sounds good. Really good. I think there is more that needs to be said in terms of going from the top right circle to the bottom left circle in this emerging view. Nonchristians would easily ask that question and I don’t know how well he actually addresses it. For instance they would ask if someone who doesn’t know God (or believe) who follows in the ways of Jesus a Christian or just a social activist? Does it matter? What’s the distinction if you’re following Jesus without consciously adhering in an organized or religious way? To be fair, it was a short summary of the gospel. So I’m sure it could be answered more thoroughly.

    • Good thoughts. You are right in the question that you raise. From circle two to circle four would be any easy philosophical and practical jump. I recommend that you read James Choung’s book which really expands on this more. Also, i would venture to say that at the end of the day, our reasoning with nonbelievers will not mean much… it will have to be a work of the Holy Spirit! Choung would say: “we need to become the kind of change that we want to see in the world and we need Jesus’ resourses to do this…”

  • I agree. We do need his resources.
