MEET JESUS... Evangelist and teacher Reverend Brenda Salter McNeil thinks evangelism that only introduces people to Jesus is incomplete. The picture is much larger than that, she claims: Christ's death and resurrection reconcile us to God and to each other across gender, race and social lines. ...AND SAM. Jesus' encounter with the Samaritan woman, introduced here as Brenda's friend Sam, gives us the full picture of gospel reconciliation-reconciliation with God and with one another. Along the way Brenda also offers her own story of coming to Christ. A Credible Witness moves us to be people whose evangelism happens through right relationship with God and others. ''In today's world,'' Brenda writes, ''we too are called to embody more than one type of reconciliation. The good news brings us to God, and it also brings life and healing to a broken, dying and divided world. Anything less is not the gospel.'' ''A church that is not unified is a scandal and a contradiction of the gospel.... [This] book will guide us on a journey to becoming a countercultural people who truly live out the values of the kingdom of God.'' From the foreword by Tony Campolo, Ph.D., professor emeritus, Eastern University
