Evangelism Tools

David Fitch, the author of the Great Giveaway, has an interesting post on the creation of a more "missional evangelism tool." I'm not sure how I feel about this, I mean, I think evangelism should be much more fluid than we often make it out to be. For instance, why don't we need tools or cubes to explain our love for baseball, cars, jobs, etc. Those things we seek after and care about are simply natural parts of our lives and conversations, but because we've bifurcated our faith we need some tools for evangelism.

I did find a few things interesting in his post though. One commenter has created a website for a tool, and I kind of like this video on sharing your faith using a legal pad. Also, here's a church's "umbrella metaphor" video that I find particularly unhelpful.

What do you think? Should we or do we need tools for evangelism?
