How to Pick Up a Stripper and Other Acts of Kindness Serving People Just as They Are Review

The publisher has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book or advanced reading copy through BookLook Bloggers

The starting and ending points for all outreach have to be love. The most effective way to reach people for Jesus is through servant evangelism—showing God’s love in practical ways. This type of outreach is what Jesus modeled, is culturally relevant, and values people. The goal should be to invite people to take the next step from where they are.

Friendship Community Church, led by Pastor Todd Stevens, has experienced tremendous growth through acts of kindness. The church’s most radical servant evangelism project is Nashville Strip Church, founded by Erin Stevens. Erin’s life changed when God told her to "go feed the strippers." With home-cooked meals and gift bags, Erin shows dancers that God loves them. How to Pick Up a Stripper and Other Acts of Kindness includes the story of a dancer who has come to know Christ, left the strip club industry through Erin’s ministry, and is now serving with Erin to reach other strippers.

From feeding the homeless, to Easter egg hunts for special needs children, to ministering in a strip club, How to Pick Up a Stripper and Other Acts of Kindness provides exciting ideas for showing God’s love in practical ways.

Features include:

Stories from servant evangelism events, including Strip Church
Ideas for showing God’s love in practical ways
Inspiration to step out of your comfort zone to serve people

Cassandras' Review- A book with many twists of spiritual emotion and stories woven in. The chapters will create a bond with the authors and antics they endure.  I felt torn between putting the book down and reflecting or just reading straight through to the end.  Needless to say the book was done faster then most and I look forward to reading more from these authors in the future.
