Sharing Christ with the people who are closest to you is often the hardest thing to do. You worry about the awkward moment. You are concerned that talking about your faith will spoil your relationship. You don’t feel adequate to talk with a family member about the need for Jesus in their life because that person knows you — warts and all — better than anyone.
In “Close Encounters: Sharing Jesus with Someone You Love,” author Lee Clamp strips away the fears and excuses and helps Christ-followers recognize the urgency for sharing the life-changing gift of God’s grace through Jesus Christ with the people who are closest to them.
He offers strategies and tips to ease Christians into that all-important conversation. In this short, easy-to-read book, Clamp offers tangible advice and encouragement on sharing Jesus with loved ones in the home, those outside the home and those not yet in the home.
“God has planted you as a missionary to your family,” the author writes. “If you don’t tell them of Jesus’ love and forgiveness, who will?”
