The Insider - Jim Peterson & Mike Shamy

Bringing the Kingdom of God into your everyday world. How are Christians to be in the world but not of the world and be salt and light? This book attempts to answer these questions and more. "Evangelism is for all of us" the back cover states, and most of us would agree that we need to share the Gospel more right where we are. Sometimes we are called to leave our circumstances, but often we are uniquely positioned to be God's ambassadors right where we are, as an "insider."
This book is broken down into 4 parts, The Insider, Overcoming Obstacles to Fruitfulness, Life Patterns of a Fruitful Insider, and Living as an Insider. I found it full of practical examples of living as an insider and representative of Jesus. The authors also use Biblical examples of those that have been insiders right where they were. Both authors are employed by The Navigators.
I would recommend this book to any Christian who wants to take his or her influence in this world to the next level, and truly be an example to others.
This book is published by Navpress.
