We are the salt of the earth and light of the world.
In Matthew 5, Jesus calls us to share with others His story of sacrifice and grace so that all glory shines on the one true God. But as times and cultures change, how best to share the unchanging gospel--as individuals and churches--requires frequent consideration.
Evangelism Handbook is a thorough guide to the daily ministry of sharing Christ. Writer and professor Alvin Reid is particularly concerned about how the Western Church is currently practicing evangelism--its failure to reach the hardcore unchurched and its trend of losing young people faster than it can win them.
With a contagious passion for the lost, Reid organizes and presents his research and experience of effective modern evangelism in four clear and actionable categories. The ways we reflect God in our lives must be:
- Biblical - with chapters on Jesus, Paul, and evangelism in Acts
- Spiritual - insights into the work of the Spirit, the power of prayer, and other disciplines
- Intentional - addressing leadership, creativity, worship, and more
- Missional - local church planting, reaching the unchurched in all nations
