Share Jesus Without Fear is a work that seeks to impress upon Christians the importance of sharing their faith and how to practically achieve this end in a lifestyle of evangelism. This is a great tool for personal evangelism. Sharing Jesus with no fear requires a three step process. All the believer is required to do is share the message God has given us.

The material is repeated in the appendices, but this is actually a useful pedagogical approach. Because God is sovereign, the outcome of an evangelistic encounter is strictly in His hands. This reviewer will not deny the Scriptures their power, but Fay dismisses the entirety of apologetics in his instruction. The last four chapters could be categorized as miscellaneous. This book is so good.
One of the themes of the book is that God is sovereign in salvation. Theologically, Fay both holds to and teaches his converts modalism, believing that God the Father and God the Son are the same person. Before this, he was the President and Chief Executive Officer of a multi-million-dollar corporation linked to the Mafia, which was involved in racketeering, bookmaking and gambling.

This is a great book for developing a method for personal evangelism. It is my conviction that I must change from inaction to action and from fear to boldness.
