Thom Rainer outlines five stages of pre-Christian attitudes about Christianity that unbelievers inevitably populate. Ranging from the unabashedly antagonistic to the almost-there, insights into all five stages are peppered with quotes from some of the interviewees, providing a valuable resource to evangelists, who will inevitably encounter all five stages. Rainer also provides 10 reasons why some Christians do not share their faith as well as strategies for reaching individuals in each of the stages of unbelief.
The appendices include the blank survey used in this study and an inventory for assessing the stage of an individual. The mode of research design and statistical review are included as well, as is the complete statistical outlay.
