New Book Release: Sharing The Good News with Mormons from Sean McDowell

Sean McDowell, professor of Christian Apologetics at Biola University and best-selling author, has just released a new book titled Sharing The Good News with Mormons. Co-written with Eric Johnson from The Mormon Research Ministry, the book highlights helpful articles from top apologists and thinkers — such as Mark Mittelberg, J. Warner Wallace, and Sandra Tanner — that will help you share your faith with your Mormon friends and family.

Here is the book's summary:
How do you share the gospel with those
Who don't think they need it?
Someone you know is a Mormon—a family member, a coworker, a friend, or a neighbor—and you long to present the truth about Jesus and what God's Word teaches. But where do you start? How can you convey what's on your heart in a way that will be well received? 
Every relationship and situation is unique, and that's why these essays from respected scholars, apologists, and pastors—including Sandra Tanner, Robert Bowman, David Geisler, Bill McKeever, Mark Mittelberg, J. Warner Wallace, Lynn Wilder, and others—lays out a variety of creative methods for sharing the gospel effectively so you can...
  • Initiate authentic conversations
  • respond with compassion and clarity to Mormon teachings
  • understand your Mormon friends and find ways to keep the dialogue going
Speaking the truth to Mormons can feel daunting when you're unprepared. Let the suggestions in this book give you solid ideas for reaching those who are lost but don't realize it.
The book, which released on June 5 and is currently the number one "New Release" in Amazon's "Mormonism" category, has twenty-four chapters comprised of articles "from a whole range of people who have different methods for sharing with Mormons."
Here are a few of the unique chapters:
“Who is the Real Jesus? —The Christ-Centered Approach.” (Rob Bowman)
“Investigating Mormonism: The Case-Making Approach.” (J. Warner Wallace)
“Sharing the Truth with LDS Women: The Compassion Approach.” (Becky Walker)
“LISTEN: The Conversational Approach.” (David Geisler and Brian Henson)

Additionally, there are featured "interviews (“Spotlights”) with people who have unique ministries to Mormons" — and it's no surprise that Brett Kunkle takes the first spotlight with his "interactive" missions trips to Utah, "where participants are equipped to engage atheists, Mormons, university students, and other non-believers."

Overall, "This is not a theology book, even though it has an appendix that carefully defines 101 Mormon terms," says Sean. "Rather, it is a practical book full of proven strategies to thoughtfully and respectfully engage Mormons in spiritual conversation......Together, we have edited the book to contain twenty-four chapters written from a whole range of people who have different methods for sharing with Mormons. You may like some approaches more than others. But there is a certainly an approach that will work for you..... I am confident you will find this to be a unique and indispensable resource for ministry to Mormons."

This is sure to be an invaluable tool for sharing your faith with the Mormons you know and love.
