Get Real: Sharing Your Every Day Faith Every Day
“Grace–driven evangelism as a lifestyle versus guilt–driven evangelism as a structured event. John Leonard helps us understand how to be ‘real’ and ‘natural’ and ‘normal’ in sharing the grace and gospel of Christ with others. Jesus loved people and openly shared his life with them as he met them in everyday life. We should do the same, and this book will help you do so more naturally and effectively.”See All

“Like most in the church, I believe in evangelism but am honestly reserved about (afraid of?) practicing it with strangers. (Does teaching and caring for a Sunday school class weekly count as evangelism? I sure hope so!) John Leonard passionately believes in, practices, and teaches many creative ways of doing evangelism. If the world is as desperately in need as our Scripture instructs us it is, then John Leonards challenging book can teach us bravery. Taste and see!”See All

“If you have one book on evangelism in your library, it should be this one. Its not what you expect. Its about life, relationships, and godly inefficiency—and its about a God who loves us so much that it shows. This is ‘real deal’ evangelism that breaks the rules and opens a floodgate of love and mercy to a desperate and needy world. Reading Dr. Leonards book is like a drink of cold, clear water refreshing a thirsty soul . . . ours and theirs.”See All

“If evangelism seems difficult, or if you have ever said, ‘I dont have the gift of evangelism,’ you will wish you had read this book a long time ago. The Get Real paradigm is anchored in the Scriptures, and especially in the Gospel accounts of Jesuss own process of evangelism. Get Real explains in easy–to–understand–and–apply ways that evangelism can be a natural part of a Christians daily routine. Get Real is the material we use to train our missionaries at Mission to the World, and it is appreciated by the missionaries because it works.”See All

“This is simply the best book on personal outreach I have ever seen. John Leonard has written for the evangelistically ungifted. Especially beginning in chapter 4, I sensed, ‘This material is going to change me.’ And it has.”See All

“Its always puzzled me how Christians who believe totally in the true humanity of Jesus should use such dehumanized methods to introduce him to others. Thankfully, Leonard has written this excellent book that takes the real Jesus as guide and example to liberate us from all those techniques, and to excite and motivate us to be truly ‘personal’ in our evangelism. Every evangelist—every Christian—needs to read it.”See All

“Do you know why ‘party evangelism’ is more biblical than ‘friendship evangelism’? Do you know why (and how) to ‘evangelize Christians and disciple non–Christians’? Would you like a book about evangelism that is both solidly scriptural and thoroughly practical—and absolutely enjoyable to read? Then Get Real by John Leonard is the book for you. No question, this is one of the best books ever on evangelism.”See All

“John Leonards Get Real: Sharing Your Everyday Faith Every Day is a delightful read from a man who obviously delights in the gospel, loves people from all backgrounds, and rejoices in creatively and compassionately sharing the good news of grace in Christ Jesus as ‘normally’ as sharing a cup of coffee with a friend. Better yet, he teaches us how to do the same.”See All

Evangelism gets more real, less awkward.
Instead of an awkward experience, sharing your faith can be a simple, everyday part of life. As you grow in your love for Jesus, sharing him with others will overflow into every conversation. Casual interactions will turn into significant moments that bring the gospel into all your relationships.
