Speaking Christianese and the Evangelistic Danger of Low Expectations

In this podcast, J. Warner talks about the habit many of us of speaking Christianese, the distinctive (and often confusing) language of the Christian faith. How can we learn to communicate important Christian concepts without sounding like we’re speaking Greek? Jim also discusses the dangerous consequences resulting from low expectations when sharing what we believe with people who seem to be completely uninterested.

Leading People to Christ Requires Good Leadership

In this podcast, J. Warner talks about the importance of leadership for those of us who hope to share the truth about Jesus. When most of us think about evangelism, we think of the importance of apologetics or understanding how to articulate the Gospel. We often overlook the role of good leadership. But if you hope to lead someone to Christ, you’ll need to become a good leader.
