I Hate Witnessing by Dick Innes
This best seller by Dick Innes, with the tongue-in-cheek title, has more than 100,000 copies in print. While it is written primarily to show how to be more effective communicators of the gospel, its principles apply equally to effectively communicate any message.
Many witnessing programs are designed for people who have the gift of personal evangelism. for those of us who don't have this gift, these programs are like putting David into Saul's armor. They don't fit and thay don't work for us. Then we feel a failure at witnessing and stop doing it.
I Hate Witnessing suggests that you discard "Saul's armor" if it doesn't fit and use the gifts God has given you. This way you can learn how to effectively communicate the Christian message in a non-threatening and non-offensive way. It also shows how to be "as Christ" to people gives workable advice for opening closed minds, and shows how evangelism is a process and not just a single event. It has been used in many colleges as a text book and/or for supplemental reading in courses on evangelism, and in many churches for training in evangelism
