42 Seconds, The Jesus Model for Everyday Interactions by Carl Medearis has been a most refreshing read. The author tells, in this book, how He spent time considering the times that Jesus Himself spoke to people. On average, according to Medearis, Jesus only spoke to individuals for about 42 seconds.
And as we can read in the Gospels, those brief encounters were effective and life giving.
This book takes the reader on a journey, to examine the everyday conversations we all have, and how one can bring the beautiful saving knowledge of Jesus into these communications.
This book is gently instructive and quite inspiring. If you are interested in exploring a different way to sharing the Gospel of Jesus, take a look at “42 Seconds” by Carl Medearis.
