Our pastor today spoke about a minister he heard on a radio interview earlier this week. Unfortunately our pastor couldn't remember the pastor's name. But he said the minister used to work for an evangelic organization and realized that most people can't do evangelism as normally thought of. This minister wrote a book about ordinary evangelism--reaching people not to necessarily bring them to church but by showing them attention and caring. Does anyone have any idea who this minister might be and what book it might be?

It doesn't ring any bells with me but you could probably contact the radio station where he heard the broadcast and they might could tell him.  If he can give them the date and approximate time they would know what the programming was for that day and if they don't have his name they might have the organization name or whoever conducted the interview.

I don't know who he is talking about but there is a website called Servant Evangelism that deals with a lot of this type of evangelism. I not sure of the spelling but Steve 

Sjorn or something like this has written several book along these lines.

Thanks for both your responses. I'll give the idea of calling the radio station to my pastor. I'm really interested in finding the book now!

There is a book out that could be the one. It is called LIFESTYLE EVANGELISM.
