What if you knew that by simply crossing the room and saying hello to someone, you could change that person's forever? Just a few steps to make an eternal difference. It has nothing to do with methods and everything to do with taking a genuine interest in another human being. All you need is a heart that's in tune with the Holy Spirit and a willingness to venture out of your "Circle of Comfort" and into another person's life. Just Walk Across the Room brings personal evangelism into the twenty-first century. Building on the solid foundation laid in Becoming a Contagious Christian, Bill Hybels shows how you can participate in the model first set by Jesus, who stepped down from heaven 2,000 years ago to bring hope and redemption to broken people living in a fallen world. Now it's your turn. Your journey may not be as dramatic, but it can have a life-changing impact for someone standing a few steps away from you-and for you as well, as you learn the power of extending care, compassion, and inclusiveness under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. The highest value in personal evangelism is cooperating with the Spirit, says Hybels. This means playing only the role you're meant to play-walking when the Spirit says to walk, talking when he says to talk, and falling silent when he suggests that you've said enough. Hybels encourages you to "live in 3D" ... -Developing friendships -Discovering stories -Discerning appropriate next steps ... as a means of learning to understand the Holy Spirit's promptings. With fresh perspectives from his own reflections and experiences collected during his most recent decade of ministry, Bill Hybels shows with convincing and inspiring clarity the power of this personal, richly relational approach to evangelism. The stakes are high. The implications are eternal. And you may be only a conversation away from having an eternal impact on someone's life-if you will just walk across the room.

Hybels shares his method of evangelism--which isn't really a method but an exhortation to build personal relationships with people. Just walk across the room--as the title says--and don't be afraid to talk to people. Find connections and use them--shared hobbies, interests, backgrounds. Don't isolate yourself in a Christian bubble, seek to have acquaintances that are non-Christians. Talk to your hairdresser, waitress, and other service people. Pray every day that God will open doors for you and that you will be prepared to walk through them.[return]Hybels message is so simple yet so good and right on mark. His personal examples were inspiring. I am still thinking about this book long after I read it and would definitely recommend it to other Christians.
