Five Lessons in Communicating the Gospel


There is no better training manual for communicating the Gospel than the Bible, and the book of Acts is a special goldmine for good guidance. In Acts 17, the Apostle Paul addresses people with a worldview and values at variance with his own. They initially write him off as a ‘babbler’ who is foolish and misguided, but he engages them successfully, resulting in several key conversions. This talk explores five key lessons drawn from this passage to apply to our own practice: Go where the people are; use words they understand; give opportunity for discussion; start from where they are at; and employ the Identify, Confront, Invite model.
