The title of this podcast may not be the best, since “closing the deal” sounds like a term for salesmen. Sharing your faith isn’t like selling a set of encyclopedias, but Christians do need to ask their listeners to act on what they’ve heard. How can you do this in a gracious way? Co-host Jeff Baldwin talks about his most recent experience, and Bill Jack talks about the new evangelism tool he has developed.

If you feel like you haven’t absorbed a sufficient allotment of “crazy talk” lately, take heart! In this episode of Radio Worldview, co-host Bill Jack returns and restores the balance of power. The show begins with Bill telling a terrific story about Worldview Academy students sharing their faith in San Diego, and then he and Jeff discuss the last Jehovah’s Witness who showed up at Jeff’s door. After a brief discussion of presidential candidates, Bill discusses what he’s reading now: Blood and Thunder by Hampton Sides.
Be very afraid. Not only does Bill Jack not appear on this podcast, but even the voice of sanity, Jeff Baldwin, is absent. Worldview Academy faculty members Mike Schutt and Dell Cook execute a hostile takeover, leading a “live” discussion at the 2007 Oregon Leaderhsip Camp. Fortunately, the discussion goes quite well, as Worldview Academy alumni respond to an atheist’s response to evangelism.
First, the good news: Bill and Jeff didn’t actually run out of gas, and they did make it to the Christianity and Culture Conference in Gillette on time. And the conference itself was terrific–full of friendly brothers and sisters in Christ who were ready to think hard about worldviews, apologetics and leadership. On the way home, in the fourth and final installment of their Wyoming road trip, Jeff interviews Bill about video evangelism. How does it work? Can anyone do it? What are the benefits? As Bill eloquently explains, video evangelism fosters several unique opportunities for Christians.
