A Review of 'Resonate' by Derek Purnell, Urban Presence.

Resonate is a great little book, the genius of it is that Terry Durose keeps things simple (though not simplistic)!  Sharing our faith should be one of the most natural things we do but fear and specialised approaches from experts can make it appear beyond our ability.  This book provides adequate information to increase our understanding and sufficient encouragement to increase our confidence.  Much of the encouragement comes from a very incarnational human attitude, working from a position of weakness and vulnerability - we do the human bit and leave God to do the Divine!

Resonate' has been reviewed by Richard Bradbury

Resonate' by Terry Durose has been reviewed by Richard Bradbury, an author and Church leader in East Yorkshire. The Review - Resonate: Sending a message that can be heard "Arising out of experience in city mission, Resonate is written as a guide to evangelism for those wanting to share their faith. Ideal as a resource for cell groups, this book could be used to help motivate and equip people to reach out into their own friendship groups and neighbourhoods or into the streets in which their church is located. The simple, practical style combined with the experience which forms a backdrop to the book, makes it accessible to a wide audience of believers."
