Can the good news of Jesus reach people today--people who are deafened by media overload, who are blinded by trendy philosophies, who are starved by shallow experiences, and who are wounded by broken relationships? Rick Richardson says yes. And he shows how.

In clear, simple terms, he describes in this booklet (meant to be given to and read by non-Christians) how the gospel taps into one of our deepest God-given longings. We all desire, more than almost anything else, to belong. And Jesus is the only one who accepts us as we are, restores our broken relationship with God, and transforms our relationships with other people.

Richardson uses an ingenious diagram of circles that you can easily draw on a single sheet of paper (or even a napkin) and clearly explain in conversation with friends, family and coworkers. Excerpted from Richardson's book Evangelism Outside the Box, the gospel presentation in Circles of Belonging has been widely used and thoroughly evaluated by church leaders both for biblical faithfulness and for evangelistic effectiveness. Here is a fresh and exciting tool for reaching people today with the good news.
