Synopsis

If You Invite Them, They Will Come.Ita€™s true. In a national survey done by author Thom Rainer and his staff, eight out of ten unchurched men and women said they would come to churcha€”if only someone would invite them. When and how is the next big question. Rainer helps you figure out where your neighbors, friends, and coworkers are in their spiritual quest, and how you can know who among the unchurched people in your life are receptive to Christ.In this fascinating book, Rainer identifies five a€œfaith stagesa€a€”levels of responsiveness, prefixed with a a€œUa€ for a€œUnchurcheda€a€”that represent your running buddy, your sister-in-law, or your hairdresser:U1 Highly receptive to hearing and believing the Good NewsU2 Receptive to the gospel and churchU3 Neutral, with no clear signs of being interested yet perhaps being open to discussionU4 Resistant to the gospel, but with no antagonistic attitudeU5 Highly antagonistic and even hostile to the gospela€œA discovery we made is that reaching lost and unchurched people is not always best accomplished with some cookie-cutter strategy,a€ Rainer writes. a€œThe unchurched are different in how they respond to the gospel.a€ How different? Youa€™ll be amazed at the variables that exist when it comes to how open people are to the Christian message. Once you've recognized which stage your unchurched friends and family are, you can much more effectively connect them with Christ. Open this book, and open your mind and heart to the powerful new possibilities of reaching The Unchurched Next Door.
