The Unexpected Adventure: Taking Everyday Risks to Talk with People About Jesus in MP3 Audiobook is a resource is that is Olympian in stature. For those who desire to share the Good News of Jesus with those who don’t know or follow Him, particularly in the Western world, it is the gold standard of experiencing what evangelism is at its core. The resource could really be called The Case for Becoming a Contagious Christian. A practical yet surprisingly thorough resource, evangelism in The Unexpected Adventure is more “caught” than “taught”, based on the book with the same title and was written by best-selling authors and evangelists Lee Strobel and Mark Mittelberg. By the end of the 42 days of adventure an unexpected breadth and depth emerges and a motivation to share the Good News grounded in an authentic relationship rooted in the grace of Christ not guilt.
However most followers of Christ know sharing the Good News about Christ -- His perfect sinless life, atoning death and triumphant resurrection -- can be fearful, difficult, and discouraging. We encounter both stereotypes, real or perceived, and we never see evangelism modeled properly. The audio resource soars above these emotional challenges and addresses every objection to evangelism by the end of the adventures. To the contrary what Strobel and Mittelberg drive home implicitly and explicitly is that sharing Jesus can be inspiring, fun and done with transparency and not a facade -- characteristics we don’t necessarily associate with the Great Commission (Matthews 28:19-20).
Strobel and Mittelberg recall select life-long “adventures” in sharing Christ over 6 weeks with neighbors, family, Muslims, Jews, atheists, agnostics, the unchurched, Church attenders, the elderly, children, murderers and regular Jane’s and Joe’s. Each day they take turns alternating as narrator of their own topical adventure. Some adventures are fall-down funny –What’s a Deist? (Day 28), awkward – Prayers of Desperation (Day 19), tearful – Do You Know? (Day 20), and point to supernatural intervention – the Unseen Side of the Journey (Day 37).
Most have heard some part of an audio book read by an author. But to be clear this is NOT two authors taking turns reading their book. As you listen you feel like you are eavesdropping in the next room or have a secret window into their world as these adventures to come to life. If listeners anticipate that every daily adventure follows a “cookie cutter” formula of the good guys riding in to solve the problem with a well-timed technique or Bible verse ending in a success story a.k.a. conversion to Christ – that expectation will end if disappointment but of the BEST kind. The Unexpected Adventure is two guys being real about victories, forward leaps and missteps – humble, inspiring and down to earth. The best part is they let us in on a secret too few know about following the Good Shepherd – sharing his life can be exciting, done through different personality types and results in the joy to live authentically for Christ.
The Unexpected Adventure also models how evangelism and apologetics fit together in a practical, logical way in an age of reason yet skepticism. As a result this reviewer has benefited at various times in his own adventures. And this is what everyone can take from the resource – we experience those who are among the very best at teaching and sharing their faith in the busyness and tensions of real life responding to misunderstanding or affronts to historic Christianity. Although the authors have seen scores come to Christ, like us they are still waiting on many they have shared Jesus with to respond while the fates of others won’t be known until eternity.
The Unexpected Adventure is easily the most underappreciated resource in the Lee Strobel canon (e.g. The Case for Christ, The Case for Faith) which includes New York Times best-selling and award-winning books. The Unexpected Adventure states positively what all Christ-followers are called to do and complements the million plus person attended Becoming a Contagious Christian: Six Sessions on Communicating Your Faith in a Style That Fits You Evangelism Curriculum taught at Churches across the nation for the past two decades. Every formal principle taught in the course is modeled in various ways in The Unexpected Adventure.
When I started this book, I did not really expect that much. It sounded a bit farfetched to me that personal evangelism would be an adventure. I could not have been more wrong.
Co-written by well known author Lee Strobel and Mark Mittelberg, this is literally an adventure in evangelism. The authors show how sharing the Gospel is not only life changing for the recipient, but for the sharer as well. Most 'evangelical' Christians may think it is important to share their faith, but many fewer do it on a regular basis. I would guess that far less would think of it as exciting.
As Mr. Strobel says, 'This is the missing ingredient in so many Christian lives.' He makes a great case for all that it can add to one's existence and meaning.
The book is designed to be read a chapter a day. The book is so good and so exciting that it is very difficult to do that. I did end up reading it that way and I am glad that I did. It spread the pleasure out longer and gave me much more time to ponder its contents.
The authors give many examples from their personal experiences that will encourage and embolden readers. I have been telling one of my friends about several of the stories as I have gone through it. I had planned to give the book to him when I finished. I decided that I could not do that. I love this book so much, that I decided to buy another copy to share with him and others. I did not want to take a chance of not getting it back.
This is a fantastic book. Every Christian should read it and share it with others.
