Jesus says his followers are the salt of the earth. But many Christians struggle with this call to be active in the world as witnesses to Christ. The word evangelism often carries negative connotations. How do we cut through fear and guilt to communicate our faith freely and effectively?

In this bestselling classic, Rebecca Manley Pippert offers a refreshing view of evangelism as a lifestyle. For over forty years, Out of the Saltshaker and Into the World has equipped believers of different backgrounds around the world. Using memorable stories, biblical insight, and practical communication techniques, Pippert points to Jesus as our model and helps us feel relaxed and enthusiastic about sharing the good news.

This landmark work is now available as part of the IVP Signature Collection, which features special editions of iconic books in celebration of the seventy-fifth anniversary of InterVarsity Press.
