Books About Evangelism
- One Gospel for All Nations by Jackson Wu – discusses the overarching themes of the gospel message and how to contextualize in your specific context. Excellent material
- Conversational Evangelism: Connecting with People to Share Jesus by David and Norman Geisler. Reviewed by Gary Ridley on the SEND U blog. “The book gives examples of the kinds of questions to use in different situations, recognizing that conversational evangelism is more art than science. What stood out to me was that in each conversation we want to keep the door open for further conversations.”
- Prepared by Grace, For Grace: the Puritans on God's Ordinary Way of Leading Sinners to Christ by Joel R. Beeke and Paul M. Smalley. This book addresses what the Puritans taught about how God prepares people for conversion. The Puritans talked about the importance of using the law to convict sinners. Gary Ridley reviewed this book on this post on the SEND U blog.
- Marks of the Messenger: Knowing, Living and Speaking the Gospel by J. Mack Stiles. “I do not think I have ever read a book on evangelism that makes me more eager to pass it on than this one – better, that makes me more eager to evangelize than this one.” comment by D. A. Carson. Reviewed by Gary Ridley on the SEND U blog.
- Jesus, Bread, and Chocolate: Crafting a Handmade Faith in a Mass-Market World by John J. Thompson. Only 99 cents on Kindle. Recommended by Kenny Humphries. “This book is not a great theological masterpiece, but I come back to its principal idea often. Recipes empower the novice to produce consistency, which is good if you get a job making hamburger buns. Artisan Bakers sometimes produce a heavy marbled rye with crisp crust and moist centers and other times flaky croissants, but it's messy, time intensive, complicated, with lots of moments looking at the half-finished product with faith in the outcome… with INCONSISTENT results. Discipleship is the same. Recipes can be helpful, but I need not fear the heavy marbled rye, or that crazy process that produces it. God doesn't need us all to be hamburger buns.”
