If You Can Eat... You Can Make Disciples

Sharing faith ins a multi-faith world

BY Peter Roennfeldt

Inspire yourself, or your congregation, to make Disciples!

What does it mean to be a Christian and share our faith in a multi-faith and no-faith world?
In our complex post-Christian world, sharing our faith can seem equally complex. But consider how Jesus related to His multi-faith context, particularly His teaching in Luke 10:1–24. He engaged Jews, Samaritans, Roman gentiles, peasants, fishermen, urbanites, religious leaders, soldiers, merchants and others in spiritual discussions. His compassion, insights, authority and methodology left people amazed.
Drawing on this key teaching and the example of Jesus, this book suggests a simple, reproducible approach. It seeks to demystify evangelism, putting it within reach of every believer.

“Many years of reflection, mentoring and praxis have resulted in another stimulating book by Peter Roennfeldt. God’s heart for all people is on every page. Read this book, then live it. That’s where the joy is!”
—Kayle de Waal, head of Avondale Seminary, author, Mission Shift

“Peter has the ability to speak right to your heart and focus on what’s truly important. This book is inspirational in its simplicity, while giving practical tools for discipleship that everyone can use.”
—Jody Eddy, pastor and chaplain, Victoria, Australia

“I love the ‘fourth alternative’ that this book gives for sharing faith. It’s simple, it’s biblical and, because of that, it works. I’ve tried it. If you don’t know what it is, I recommend reading this short book to find out.”
—Terry Johnson, President, Greater Sydney Conference

In a recent interview, Christian cultural commentator Jonathan Merritt suggested that “most people today aren’t anti-Christian, they’re anti-jerk.” Yet too many of the louder Christian voices that many in our communities hear are those that sound jerk-like. In response, many of the rest of us have gone quiet, not wanting to be one more jerk nor to identify with them—at the same time as we feel more than a little guilty about our silence.
If You Can Eat . . . You Can Make Disciples offers a real and refreshing alternative. Dr Peter Roennfeldt’s new little book begins in his own experience of sharing faith with his multicultural and multi-faith neighbours in the western suburbs of Melbourne. But it also firmly directs us back to the method and example of Jesus, and what He taught His disciples in Luke 10:1–24. Jesus urged that there are more people ready to hear about Him—and the healing and hope He brings—than we might assume (see Luke 10:2). And the reality is that many people are curious about Jesus when He is shared by someone they trust or are getting to know.
As well as its strong biblical foundation, If You Can Eat includes real-life stories and examples of what this can look like in a community like yours. The closing chapter suggests ways our churches can adapt to minister to and include our friends who are wanting to follow Jesus and an appendix gives a brief introduction to the other faiths we are likely to encounter in our communities. The short chapters have questions for reflection, which could work well to prompt discussion in a small group or among a group of local church leaders.
If You Can Eat . . . You Can Make Disciples is both challenging and inspiring, biblical and personal, simple and profound. Reminding us of the method and ministry of Jesus, it is an invitation to each of us to continue learning to be disciples together with our multi-faith and no-faith family, friends and colleagues.
—Nathan Brown, Book Editor, Signs Publishing
