From the Back Cover
Do you shy away from sharing the true gospel message with others, unsure of what to say, afraid of rejection and ridicule?
That's not what Jesus did.
Jesus was not afraid to shake people up. He spoke openly of their sinful nature and the righteousness of God. He forced people to confront their sin head-on, and he brought them face-to-face with their need for salvation.
"The Way of the Master will teach you how to share the message of the gospel simply, biblically, and without fear--the way Jesus did! You will become equipped to confidently lead anyone--friend, family member, coworker, neighbor, or stranger on the street--to a clear understanding of repentance and what it means to be a true and active follower of Jesus Christ.

Es conferenciante en temas de ateismo en la Universidad Yale y otras universidades prestigiosas, debate en el programa ABC Nightline y escribio Dios no cree en los ateos, Examen para el ateo (folleto que vendio mas de un millon de copias) y puedes guiar a un ateo a la evidencia pero no le puedes hacer pensar, entre otros. Sirvio como conferenciante de plataforma para la asociacion de Ateos Americanos, Inc., en su convencion nacional del 2001. Ray y su esposa, Sue, residen en el sur de California.
Kirk Cameron es mas conocido por su personaje como el adorable rompecorazones, Mike Seaver, de la galardonada serie de television Ay, Como duele crecer! Su papel de travieso encantador, fue el entretenimiento de una audiencia mundial. Tambien es conocido entre cristianos por su personaje -Buck Williams- de la serie Dejados Atras basada en la inesperada novela mejor vendida de la lista NY Times escrita por Tim LaHaye y Jerry Jenkins. Pero mas notable que su carrera como actor fue su conversion al cristianismo. Kirk no crecio en un hogar donde se acostumbrara ir a la iglesia y se describe con un ateo devoto desde una edad muy tierna. Al llegar a los catorce anos de edad, estaba tan convencido de que Dios no existia, que se burlaba de aquellos que creian lo contrario. Pero todo cambio una tarde mientras que se sentaba en su carro deportivo meditando sobre el primer mensaje evangelico que habia escuchado.

A good and powerful read that promotes some soul searching.
The book is well designed to help you adjust your thinking about how to witness. I suggest that you start by listening to the CD which is an overview of the key lessons in the book. Then, you should read the book to appreciate the ideas in more detail. Ray Comfort has a genius for using hypothetical examples of life-threatening circumstances as parables to explain about helping others open their hearts to the Lord. Those who travel on airplanes a lot and like to witness there will be delighted to know that many of the examples are based on airplane travel and parachutes. Kirk Cameron adds commentaries that flesh out and provide a different perspective on these teachings. It all works well together. The material is a little repetitive, but that's helpful for making you realize what their points are.
I have always been concerned about helping create false commitments to the Lord, and books like this one that focus on how to help someone come to repentance have been a great blessing to me as a witness. If you have that concern, you will greatly appreciate the book.
The big new learning for me from The Way of the Master is that if people "try" Christianity on the expectation that it will automatically make their lives much better that false belief will cause many of them to become opponents of Christianity and to dabble in various activities encouraged by the enemy who is in the world.
As I read the book, I recalled how I became a born-again Christian. I realized that the man who helped me, my physician, used exactly the method described here. I guess I have subconsciously been assuming that everyone does it that way. I feel very blessed to have gained Salvation through such a good example.
The book also made me more sensitive to the idea that many people don't know what the Ten Commandments are and what Jesus had to say about them. This method will help overcome that ignorance and assist lost people to understand their real situation relative to God's hatred of sin and commitment to punish sin that hasn't been covered by the blood of the Lamb.
To me, the only missing element in the book was a description of how a church might go from not having many active witnesses in the congregation to having everyone be a complete, continual witness. The authors offer a program for churches to provide education, but it's not so easy to go from inactivity to effective activity. I believe that most Christians would like to improve their witnessing through a lot of support from their church. I believe that in-congregation evangelists and taking five-minutes from every service and church activity to teach and encourage witnessing is essential. Hopefully, this information can be added to a future edition of this valuable resource.
