In Matthew 5, Jesus calls believers the salt of the earth and light of the world. Indeed, we must reach out to tell others His story of sacrifice and grace so glory is given to God throughout our communities and the entire planet.Evangelism Handbookis a thorough guide to the daily ministry of sharing Christ. Writer and professor Alvin Reid is particularly concerned about how the Western Church is practicing evangelismits failure to reach the hardcore unchurched and its trend of losing young people faster than it can win them.With all of that in mind, Reid organizes his research and experience in effective modern evangelism into four clear and actionable categories:Biblical(with chapters on Jesus, Paul, and evangelism in Acts),Spiritual(the work of the Spirit, the power of prayer and other disciplines),Intentional(leadership, creativity, worship), andMissional(church planting, reaching the unchurched).
