So begins the bestselling book on
evangelism as a lifestyle.
Through stories, biblical insight and
plain common sense, she
helps us feel relaxed and enthusiastic
about sharing our faith.
This thoroughly revised and expanded
edition is now even more
valuable, with new chapters on the
natural stages of evangelism (cultivating, planting and
new stories of God's work in people's
lives and added material on meeting the challenges of the
competitors to Christian faith. Out of
the Saltshaker is more than ever a rare book--one that is
fun and deep, light and life-changing.
"Becky Pippert is one of the liveliest and most effective
communicators in the Christian world
today." Chuck Colson
"I love this book! I've laughed, I've
cried, and I've thanked our Father for Becky's obedience in

of evangelism. We fear that our friends will reject or
marginalize us if we speak about our
faith; we fear that what we don't know will be exposed. . .
"Out of the Saltshaker had its
beginnings before I became a Christian. Even then I had
thoughts about the way people
communicated what was most important to them. I remember
encountering a zealous Christian. His
brow was furrowed, he seemed anxious and impatient, and he
sounded angry. Then he told me God
loved me. I couldn't help noticing the difference between
message and his style. His message was
arresting (me, a sinner?) but ultimately appealing (there is
God who loves me deeply). But his style
