Strobel sets forth 15 key insights, from his own experience and from psychological research, for why people steer clear of God and the church. He also offers a fascinating look at Christianity in the eyes of a former atheist. His life-changing interaction with Jesus is an inspirational story for all those with unchurched friends and family. He offers practical strategies for both building relationships with non-Christians, and getting them into the church. He also shares some firsthand advice for surviving marriage to an unbelieving spouse (his wife became a Christian before he did, and it caused quite a bit of tension).
Strobel says he wrote Inside the Mind of Unchurched Harry and Mary to "help advance your understanding of unchurched people so that your evangelistic efforts and the efforts of your church might become more effective." And it will likely do just that. Strobel's style is conversational, and his love for the unchurched shines throughout. He knows what Jesus has done for him, and wants to share that with as many people as possible. After you read this book, you will too. He sees this book as tangible evidence that God can and does work all things for the good of those who love Him.
