How to Pick Up a Stripper by Todd and Erin Stevens

I first heard about Todd and Erin Stevens two months ago in the local newspaper. There was a profile on Erin's work in starting Nashville Strip Church and I was intrigued. That afternoon I received an email from BookLook that their book How to Pick Up a Stripper and Other Acts of Kindness would be available for review beginning in July. I marked the date and waited. 

This excellent book is part of the Refraction series which is targeted at Millennial Christians (me!) and How to Pick up a Stripper is about evangelism. This is not a book about how we need to go out and shout at people to try and convert them. This is a book about developing a relationship and a reputation with your community so that you can reach them for Christ. There are practical tips for building relationships, for bolstering your reputation (and that of the church as a whole) and for reaching out to those who need to find a relationship with Jesus Christ.

The title comes from the Erin Stevens experience starting Nashville Strip Church. God called her to begin ministering too and serving the girls who were dancing. Through this ministry several girls have become Christians and their church has had the opportunity to minister to them and help them as they change their lives and destinies.

There was so much covered in this book that made me evaluate myself, my beliefs and my Christian life. I cannot recommend this book enough to those of you who want to help others find Christ. The important thing to remember is that for our generation, many will be in that category. I read this book slowly so that I could savor and fully grasp what the Stevens were explaining. I want to be the person that helps lead others to Christ. I definitely recommend this book for everyone, but especially for our generation.

A copy of this book was provided to me in exchange for an honest review.
