Ordered for my teen small group, and the devotions are short, events that are both current and helpful.

"Witnessing 101" by Tim Baker is refreshing. Many churches, he says, tell us that witnessing is more of a speech told at people. Tim Baker says it is more about a long-haul relationship in which a person intentionally share their faith, and in doing so, is more honest, loving and accurate.

He takes standard ideas on sharing one's faith and presents them in a way that can be understood by junior high school age and above.

With punchy language indicating he is hip to what it means to be a teenager, Baker shows he is current with what today's youth are dealing with in their Monday-Saturday lives. I wish he translate this book into something we 30-somethings can readily understand, as the ideas here are no different that will be found in any solid adult evangelism program.

Baker's goal is to remove the barriers that teens have in sharing the gospel effectively with their friends. He honestly explains how it is easy to irritate others by being a know-it-all, how there is no need to cuss just to be connect with someone, and how tempting it is to follow those friends into parties or cults experiences and wind up in terrible trouble.

One theme Baker keeps returning to is the teen's testimony. He explains that there is no such thing as a boring testimony, and to avoid embellishing it to make it sound more exciting. He provides several exercises for thinking through and outlining what a testimony should and shouldn't say.

A challenge that runs through the text is to ask ourselves what stops us from sharing the Gospel, and how can we get past that. Do we need to know everything about theology? No. Does tolerance mean everyone gets into Heaven, even those who despise Christ? No. Will we be ready for every question the other person has in response? No. Will God help us? Yes.

He gets into a chapter on what the Gospel is, and what it isn't, and the core truths we know of God. He lists several commonly heard lies about God, like "The earth is God," and "There are many paths to God." Similarly, he lists lies about Jesus, Heaven, sin, Satan, salvation and humans. Fans of Josh McDowell or Norman Geisler will connect with these chapters.

When thinking of what to say to whom, he suggests the following questions, followed by why they are important to ask:

* Who (pick someone)
* Are you their friend?
* What do they already know?
* What do you need to say?
* Before, during and after, after, after...

These are based on being a real friend, and considering who they are before trying to tell them what you think.

He discourages dating nonbelievers, and explains why. He makes his point while describing the pitfalls of justifying dating as an opportunity to build trust. The pretense is false and dangerous on many levels, and so Baker cautions accordingly.

Throughout, Baker depends on Scripture. Bible verses are quoted and referenced to for every point, always bringing Christ as the focus. He writes humbly, noting his life and troubles, as well as how his faith developed. He tells the story about he was the kind of person who fell through the cracks, and was easily ignored, thanks to being dyslexic and having ADHD. Someone took the time to love him despite his mistakes, and now he is a youth pastor and author of several award-winning books.

Unlike other books written for the teen market, Baker steers away from dropping cultural references that will be forgotten in five years. This book should have staying power for a few more years than some others.

I fully recommend "Witnessing 101" by Tim Baker. Students can use this in a weekly meeting, or on their own. Not only will they learn what sharing their faith means and how to do it, but they will also gain insight about living a life that's true.
