    1. God's Heart for the UnbelieverProf. Jerram Barrs is deeply aware of God's great for the unbeliever, and shares in that heat with our Heavenly Father. In this book, he gives us windows into the myriad approaches of the greatest evangelist ever to live, Jesus Christ. Through Prof. Barrs' careful and heart felt exposition of these passages, we begin to see exactly how Jesus embarked on his mission, and we see what a delight it is for us to be called to serve by his side.


    2. Earmarked, underlined, highlighted. This book is now one of my favorites as it dispelled some questions/concerns about the character of God and filled in the blanks to allow me to love Jesus even more than I did beforehand.


    3. Convicting, encouraging study of Jesus' interactions with unbelievers within the Gospel narratives. Barrs highlights several startling aspects of these encounters and then draws practical principles for Christians as we graciously engage with those outside the Church. I especially appreciated his thoughts on Jesus' willingness to leave his listener's hanging (the rich young ruler), to provoke introspection with questions (the teacher of the law), and to humbly admit need and ask for help from so [...]


    4. Love this book! Barrs bringing some insight into how Jesus interacted with different types of folks. Each chapter focuses on a different story - some are parables but most are stories of Jesus. I was especially challenged to look at everyone through the lens of love - Jesus' love. It's not my job to tell folks how sinful they are but rather tell them how amazing Jesus is.


    5. Excellent readA new perspective & approach to evangelism based on the greatest evangelist whoever lived! highly recommended reading for those who long to reach the lost.


    6. Excellent book about how Jesus interacted with people while he was on earth. Biblical + Practical = Chris approved!


    7. There is a simplistic beauty in learning evangelism by observing the record of Christ’s work in Scripture. Coming from an evangelical tradition where Scripture is held as the guide for all wisdom in life, it seems completely natural to look at Jesus in this way. There are many methods of evangelism in the modern Christian scene but in my experience, I have not had the pleasure of encountering a philosophy of practicing evangelism that sought to base its understanding and method on the example [...]


    8. A must read (along with its companion volume, "The Heart of Evangelism"). I enjoyed the second volume more, though that may be because of the solid foundation built here. Read this first, then the second. Here Barrs puts flesh and meat on the skeleton laid out in the previous volume, making it a more fulfilling read. These books completely changed my concept of evangelism. Full review of both volumes can be found here.


    9. I've always been challenged by Jerram. I'm moved to repentance and faith whenever I'm exposed to his teaching. I wasn't sure what another book on evangelism would produce, but I found it a great joy to read. Very good insight into Jesus' approach to evangelism that corrects so many of my own flaws.


    10. The better of Barrs books on evangelism. What I found best about the book is the intimate personal and scriptural reflections from which he derived his applications. The book is easy to reference, with good grounded subtitles. Each section also identified the application of each chapter, which were the highlights of this book.


    11. Excellent BookThis will most certainly be read over and over again as the challenges to evangelize are so clear. Evangelism as modeled by Jesus is not a one size fits all process and this book takes specific examples of Jesus' ministry to explain this idea. Well organized and laid out, this book is a great one to have on your shelf.


    12. If you're looking for a book on evangelism methods then you probably need to read something else. If you want to see clearly see how Jesus related to non-believers and the application of those principles then this is a book you'll want to read.


    13. Not the most engaging read. Plods and labors its way through various evangelistic episodes in Jesus' life. At times the author misses crucial elements that then affect his conclusions. Probably not a book I'll recommend to anyone.


    14. Great look at the way Jesus interacted with sinners. Evangelism today is often much more formulaic, impatient, and cheap than it was for Jesus. Really helpful in showing how one balances presenting law and gospel to different individuals. It gets a little repetitive at times, but it's really good.



    15. I will reread this book simply because Barr wrote such an excellent treatise on the Lord's evangelistic actions. An insightful read for all even if you are familiar with the New Testament.


    16. I have been reading a chapter of this book each morning during my study and devotional time. I enjoyed it very much. It got me thinking.
