Evangelism without Additives – What if sharing your faith meant just being yourself?

I like to think of myself as a learner; therefore, my reason for hanging out people from all walks of life and persons who challenge me. During the summer of 2007 I had the privilege of hanging with Jim Henderson and Matt Casper after their book, “Jim and Casper Go To Church” caught my attention. I then traveled to Seattle, Wa in the fall of 2007 to attend Jim’s, “Off the Map” conference where once again I found myself challenged.

During my visit to Seattle, Wa I recall thinking…you know it’s not everyday you find an East Texas country boy, baptist by birth, raised by a penecostal mom, with a Bacelor of Science in Forestry, and a Master of Arts in Christian Education sitting at table with 14 people who consider themselves atheist telling them his faith story by interpreting his half sleeve tattoo as he shares his testimony while they are throwing back a few cold ones.

BUT…that is where I found myself when I learned of Jim’s book, “Evangelism without Additives: What is sharing your faith meant just being yourself“. The following day Jim told me he’d send me a copy in the mail. Sure enough he did and…well…it is a great read.


So good in fact that I have encouraged my students at Rockbridge Seminary to pick it up and give it a read. I am teaching The Theology and Practice of Evangelism this spring and continue to learn something new each day.

I hope you enjoy the read.
