As I first got into this book, I feared that it would be filled with good illustrations but not tackle the scriptural issues I wanted to know about Evangelism...I was wrong.The book is interesting the whole way through, and clearly articulates the points without redundancy. I have been seriously thinking about evangelism for a few years now, and if I would have asked someone to write a book on evangelism with the questions that I had, this is what it would have been about.The way each chapter was set up was great, the story at the beginning, the conclusion at the end. The introduction was powerful, it is not about you, it is about God! We are his instruments. Cecil combated the current-day trend of choosing personal evangelistic "styles." He eased the fears of readers early on when he spoke of our dependency on Christ, and how we were created that way, and it is not a bad thing.Fellow Christians, read this book!
In Cecil's book, he does a great job of covering all the bases in regards to how we evangelize to others. Each principle is beneficial in its own unique way. Whether it is checking your heart, what the Gospel really is, or how to share it, Cecil implements the importance of each principle equally. He does a great job of incorporating scripture while still having his own interpretation. Overall, Cecil does an amazing job at highlighting the important points of evangelism while giving detail where it is needed.
We had to read this book for a class and I found this to be a wonderful book. We also viewed many of Dr Cecil's lectures and his lectures are right in-line with the book. I'm sure the book originated as an overview of his seminary course both his students and others. This is a great book, I cannot recommended it more.If you are wondering about how evangelism is supposed to fit into your daily walk and trying to understand exactly what evangelism is and is not, this book is for you. I would recommend it for any small group or individual study on evangelism.
the book was excellent teaching material in our churchPastor Stewart taught 3 Bible Classes with the book
This is a great tool to share the Good News with others in a loving way!
