Rico's example of his dying grandmother, while sad and very serious, and which enabled him to point up an idol in his own life, is none the less not something he should unreasonably beat himself about. She almost certainly knew of Rico and his brother's views and had rejected them. These things are in the Lord's hands. I liked the emphasis on the seriousness of witness and the need of unbelievers with the outcome for them being Hell if they do not repent.
We need to keep this continually in mind.
I would recommend this book as a stimultating read and challenge, subject to the provisos made above. We don't have to be a full time evangelist, have a brilliant mind, or know all the answers. Tice makes it plain again and again that it is not our job to save people, but it is God's. All God asks of us is that we be willing to cross the painline, and be available to speak to others as we go about our daily lives. We can be ourselves fully and do this! Thank you Rico Tice for the encouragement!
Some books on evangelism are discouraging because they pile on the guilt, but Rico has a disarming ability to motivate as well as diagnose.

Alvin L. Reid, professor of evangelism, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary "I finished reading [Evangelism Outside the Box] last weekend and found it to be by far one of the best sources of encouragement and instruction for reaching out to the lost of my generation! In fact, I called up all of my friends who are involved in college and youth ministry and told them to download and study the book ASAP.
It will serve as a guide for myself and many others for years to come! As a result of this thoughtful reflection, Richardson offers a set of very innovative strategies of evangelism that is deeply faithful to the Scriptures and highly relevant to today's world.
It is a book I will continue to use to challenge my students and myself to go beyond the usual, traditional views and practices of sharing the good news of Jesus Christ. Drawn from his years of work as a campus evangelist as well as his wide and careful reading, Richardson suggests powerful new ways to reach a generation that is spiritual but not religious.
Richardson understands postmodern culture and how to make Jesus known in it. He charts a useful course for the church as more and more of the culture becomes postmodern in outlook. I am using this book as a text in several of my courses, including a Ph.
Rick Richardson's book is an extremely useful guide for this challenging task. Dorsett, professor of evangelism and spiritual formation, Wheaton College Graduate School "Is witnessing for you something like hitting a handball into a sand dune?
Lots of effort, little response?
Have you found [that] the old answers, the proven methods just don't seem to work? Then read Evangelism Outside the Box.
Very informative and the lessons are very quick to read and to the point. I would recommend this title to those that want to know more about evangelism. Great resource. Most of all - it is a guide for anyone who wants to take part in the Great Commission. In my opinion, this is the single most effective, practical, and insightful book on evangelism in our generation.
My heart has been lit ablaze for souls again!
Get it. Review by Ishmael Incredible amount of information to have. I study this next to my bible and have gotten so much out of it. Review by TruthSaves I just finished lesson 3 and I can already tell how much of a help this will be. I am so excited to finish the rest of the course.
