    1. I recently finished reading Nudge by Leanord Sweet This book was given to me by a friend who recommended it for me based upon the work that we do in evangelism.The most impactful concept that stood out from the first half of the book was the idea that as people on mission, we often think or act as though we are packing up Jesus into a backpack to take him someplace He has yet been How far from the truth this idea is in actuality, as we are not bringing Jesus anyplace he has yet to be We have an [...]


    2. The concept is beneficialDespite needing an editor to help reduce the amount of distractions that seem to pop up, if you persist in reading you ll mine out some really big and helpful points Perhaps because the idea is so easily ignored by our culture, the author thought it was vital to look at the same idea in so many ways.


    3. Although Sweet is notoriously scattered I purchased the book based off of John Stackhouse s unique critique including recommendation published in the book, where he states, It sometimes, and maddeningly, oversimplifies and underexplains , I really enjoyed reading Nudge The basic premise of evangelism as paying attention nudging people towards what God is up to may sound at first a bit fluffy and, to some, a cop out of the hard work of real kingdom work like preaching to your neighbours and handi [...]


    4. Nudge by Leonard Sweet is an extraordinarily intelligent and completely out of the box thinking about evangelism Sweet, a well known author and pastor, wants readers to awaken to the world of nudges, the ones we receive from God and others and the ones we can give to others to teach them about God Evangelism has acquired a bad name occasionally because it often becomes one person out talking the other and trying to force ideas down their throat Nudge completely turns traditional evangelism on it [...]


    5. A wonderful meander through the Sweet school of discipleship Reading this books makes you wish you could hang with Leonard and pick up the scraps of wisdom he continually throws off And he has such a pleasant, optimistic manner you gotta think he s a riot to have beers with.The content is similar to a number of other Sweet books He argues convincingly that Christianity and Christians should be real and pleasant The You Catch More Flies With Honey school of discipleship He is mildly critical of [...]


    6. Dr Sweet is a true wordsmith and this determines who does and does not enjoy his reading I was at first afraid to read Nudge as the preface discussed the importance of Evangelism I get chills just thinking about Evangelism, probably because I equate it to the early 1980s and old ladies passing out tracts at restaurants However, Sweet brilliantly draws the reader into true desire for evangelism with the understanding that God is out there, at work, inviting his loved ones to join Him Sweet goes t [...]


    7. It wasn t quite the book I was hoping for I wanted something practical for encouraging people toward Jesus and how to do that.What I got was far theoretical I wasn t sure if the author was attributing everything that ever happened as a sign from God, cheapening the real thing Also if felt rather dangerous and the topic of false signs was barely acknowledged I know scriptures of the enemy disguised as an angel of light that should be mentioned I really like the concept of nudging others toward J [...]


    8. Nudge is about using your instincts to evangelize Instead of pushing hard learn to recognize the signs of Jesus being everywhere and in everyone Use those signs to make people aware that they already have Jesus, they just need to acknowledge it I found the book very difficult to read, I m not sure, but I think the construction of the sentences were off At first I thought perhaps it was written as a textbook but since reading it again, I believe it s the use of incomplete language The book is wor [...]


    9. When we give GodOur full attentionAnd not mentionOur long list of needsJust sit at His feetAnd pay heedWe discoverThe lover of our soulsHas His eyes upon usAs He smiles upon usSinging songs over us with joyOur God who formed usIs for usTransforms usWhen we spend time with ChristAll we needIs found when we seekGod firstHe feeds us, our thirstHe attends toAs streams of life givingGoodness and mercyWith fullness to us overflow cinderellasang 201


    10. Another excellent book from maverick theologian, historian and futurist Leonard Sweet This one takes evangelism into the postmodern era by reminding us that it is about awakening others to a reality already in their midst, if not in their being Contrasted with the traditional conventional model of evangelism being about something the we have to impose on others from the outside, this approach is much organic, relational and true to the embodiment of Jesus.


    11. The book had potential, but it wasn t fulfilled for me Sweet explores how people need to get in tune with their five senses in order to be in tune with God and His working in the world, and in order to Nudge others in the direction of recognising God exists and is present and we can sense Him if we re paying attention.However, the writing style and Sweet s attempts to be witty and metaphorical detracted from his points for me.


    12. I really wanted to like this book Honestly The author s heart is in the right place, and it started off well About halfway through, I realized I don t have any idea what he s talking about, and I cut my losses Maybe I m just too literal a person to get his use of metaphors and odd ethereal concepts, but I couldn t get a hold of this book Nudge it back on the shelf in the bookstore.


    13. Thaler Sunstein if you are interested in public policy and the human condition than this book is a must read Against Milton Freidman and free markets of the University of Chicago has long stood for in economics They now realize that most peopled need a nudge to do the right thing that will help them in the long run.


    14. Intelligent and challenging viewpoint of evangelism that Christians who are looking for outside the box approach that they may never have considered showing or nudging people to see how God is working in their lives rather than sharing how God is moving in yours Recommended Ninth book I read of Frank Violas top 100.


    15. I enjoyed this book from a philosophical standpoint The concept of living and interacting with all our senses is important Our relationship with Christ with each other needs to be deeper and participatory I think that is what Sweet advocates in this idea of nudge evangelism Good read.


    16. Leonard Sweet did it again He helped me to revive an old way of thinking that was dying and breathe new life into it Len made a way for all of us to know we can still be the gospel, even with all our shortcomings.


    17. I enjoyed this book, especially the discussion on attention and being fully present I know some will take issue with some of the book, but I believe Sweet is on the right track culturally God is all around uswe need to wake up to his presence.


    18. One of the best and easy to understand book that helps a person nudge others without overstepping any invisible lines that we all have It not only helps one understand what a church today needs but gives you specified instructions or steps to help you proceed.


    19. Sweet nails the essence of what it looks like to read the signs of the spirit around us Excellent, practical book on living life with full attention and fully aware of Gods presence in our day to day lives and how that affects our ability to share God with others





    20. It starts of well, but goes on too long He makes excellent points, and there are some great quotable lines.
