5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent! 13. August 2010
Von Jon Snyder - Veröffentlicht auf
I just finished Coffee Shop Conversations and thought is was outstanding! Much of my family, most of my closest friends, and almost all of my coworkers do not know Jesus. I love them all, and pray for them earnestly that they would accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior. They are intelligent people with well thought-out spiritual opinions, and they ask tough questions. I have found myself ill-equipped to engage them in meaningful conversations about Jesus and spirituality, especially when I find myself in a situation where I only have a few minutes to speak with them. As a professional engineer with a natural bent for identifiable processes, I found Coffee Shop Conversations to be an excellent how-to manual for engaging in spiritual conversations and addressing challenging social issues in our society. I am now much better prepared for those conversations; and while I read this book in hopes of preparing for those conversations, I found that the greatest insights this book offers were insights into my own spirituality and following Jesus more appropriately.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Stop wasting time in idle chit-chat 22. Dezember 2010
Von Lisa notes... - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
If you've ever walked away from a conversation thinking, "What precious time we just wasted in idle chitchat," read this book!

It teaches you how to steer conversations to subjects that MATTER, with truth and gentleness, while avoiding being offensive or bullying or just plain weird.

It will open your eyes to how non-believers think so you can move past barriers that typically keep believers and non-believers from sustaining a religious discussion.

In contrast to the beat-over-the-head-with-a-Bible method too often misused in evangelism, the Finchers suggest using seven specific manners for an effective spiritual conversation, including:
Respect one another
Step into their shoes
Wrestle on your own
Share your personal experience
Allow others to remain unconvinced

You'll end up examining how well YOU know Jesus and what you really believe about the "good news" yourself.

The Finchers tell you to keep it simple so you don't get sidetracked on non-essential issues. Remember you are inviting others to Jesus, not to your denomination or particular church.

They teach you how to be free to be yourself as you talk about Jesus in ordinary conversations with ordinary people. Thanks to this book, I feel more confident that I can do this!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Sharing your faith chipmunk-style or coffeehouse-style? 10. März 2011
Von Susy Flory - Veröffentlicht auf
When it comes to sharing your faith, do you operate chipmunk-style or coffeehouse-style? If you go the way of the chipmunk, you're on a mission to scurry out and spread the Gospel, then hurry back to your hole. It can be scary, tense, performance-driven, and guilt laden. (If I sound like I know this style intimately, I do. And it paralyzed me from talking freely about my faith for a very long time.) The problem? Most of the time you feel like a failure because sharing your faith with someone doesn't often result in an immediate change of heart. Leaving the well-traveled grooves of a life lived without God takes time and the work of the Holy Spirit.

But coffeehouse-style is different. Coffee Shop Conversations, by Dale Fincher and Jonalyn Fincher, brews up a fresh way to share your faith and a key component is something I was never taught to do when I learned the ways of evangelism: listening. "All people are like packages," write the Finchers. "God invites us to look beyond the outside labels and give people our attention. Jesus shows us how to open the envelopes of people's lives and know our neighbors beyond the roles they play. Like the wrapping, our bodies conceal our souls within. Each person holds unknown surprises, unique concerns, interests, and motivations. What's inside the packages we call people?"

So rather than seeing people as a project, a target, or a mission, we need to see them as precious and unique individuals who cannot be approached with a one-size-fits-all memorized technique. We need to be present, awake and aware in the moment, and primed to infuse even the briefest interaction with meaning. Coffee Shop Conversations' challenge to meet people in love, humility, and grace, and to strive to strike up meaningful spiritual conversations reminds me of what a powerful conversational evangelist once told me: "I choose to keep myself open and talk to people. I stop and listen and I care about their problems. Then, when I look in their eyes, sometimes....sometimes I see a spark, something from deep inside that reaches out to something deep inside me. Then I know that they are looking for something more. It might not happen that day, or that week, or even that year, but I know that if we become friends, someday I will get a chance to share the thing that is most important in my life." The FInchers describe this powerful intersection of souls as "looking beyond different beliefs and into people's souls to see our shared struggles." Because whether someone is a Buddhist, Muslim, Wiccan, or doesn't quite know what they believe, they bear the image of God and we need to treat them with value.

Besides challenging us in Part 1: Making Spiritual Small Talk, to look at sharing our faith in a whole new light, Coffee Shop Conversations is an equipping book. Part 2: Restocking Your Tools, includes engaging chapters on How to Read the Bible, Misquoting Jesus, and differentiating between different religious belief systems in One True Religion. The Finchers even unpack popular spiritual books such as The Secret, The Four Agreements, and a popular Oprah pick, Eckhart Tolle's A New Earth. The last section is Helping Friends Home, and deals with common questions and topics that might arise in spiritual conversations, because, after all, some topics are harder than others. For example, the problem of pain and suffering is one that different religions handle with vastly different ideas on the solution.

Finally, coffee shop conversations are as much about learning as they are about teaching or sharing your faith. "We want this book to serve not merely as a collection of apologetic tools, but as a road map guiding you toward freedom to be yourself as you talk about Jesus. We hope you will customize your conversations to the unique gifts God has forged in your soul. May you develop your own questions and ideas to introduce others to the God of Israel. May you continue to be taught and humbled by the humans God places in your life." Coffee Shop Conversations is a great reminder that it's all about loving your neighbor, and sometimes that's easier, more effective, and a whole lot more fun in a coffee shop. White chocolate mocha, anyone?

5.0 von 5 Sternen ORDER THIS BOOK!!! 9. Mai 2010
Von kalelman - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
Although evangelism in Christian culture can seem more like a set of organized events (handing out tracks, organized visitation) Dale and Jonalyn offer a refreshing approach that many of us overlook in the Scriptures. In a approachable and conversational style we are beckoned to engage people for who they are, creations of God, not objects to obtain. Their honesty breaks through and examples of mistakes and victories helped me relate. I appreciate the humility that resonates through the book, I don't feel Dale and Jonalyn are preachy but using a journey they are on to to bring us along side to break down barriers to the Gospel. One quote particularly intrigued me "The only time we have a right to talk with someone and introduce Jesus is when we're certain we see them as equally human, broken, and in pain like us".

Im almost done with this book. LOVE it!! Dale and Jonalyn provide so much insite into respecting others while sharing your faith! I have a new appreciation for studying the Bible. I feel I have been given some helpful tools for knowing how to read and understand God's Word. Their clear presentation, and fantastic examples are so helpful. I already find myself putting to practice what I have learned. My favorite right now is...Don't judge a thing by its abuse. Its changed my judgemental attitude.
Still eagerly reading.....

If we want our conversations to always be full of grace, then humility, not deft arguments or clever words, must become our first concern. &quote;

But God promises that if we anchor ourselves to the truth and love of God, we remain free to listen and love without danger of walking astray. &quote;

Every person, we believe, has something to teach us about life. While we believe Jesus distinguishes himself as the Savior and King of us all, while we obey his teachings because we believe they give us the best road map for life, we also believe the biblical idea that all humansbe they Christians, Buddhists, Mormons, atheistsare made in Gods image.b All humans reflect God in varying degrees of clarity. Therefore we approach every conversation as fellow learners rather than posturing as experts. &quote;
