Book review of More Ready Than You Realize by Brian McLaren

Recently I finished reading the book, More Ready Than You Realize by Brian McLaren. As a Christian man who is hopes to be a good witness (and respectful) to non-Christians, this book was very beneficial to me.

Beginning to read, More Ready Than You Realize is exciting to me because I like the idea of evangelism being less about an “event” and more about a “process.” I think the main reason I am excited to learn more about evangelism being a process is because I came to know and follow Jesus through a four year process. I was the product of “good evangelists” like those McLaren defines as, “people who engage others in good conversation about important topics such as faith, values, hope, meaning, purpose, goodness, beauty, truth, life after death, life before death, and God” (pg 16). That describes the process that I was engaged in for four years before I finally became a Christian and it is encouraging to see that McLaren encourages others to be that way too.
