Why evangelize? A Christian questioning the need for evangelism is like an American questioning the flag, motherhood, and apple pie. Yet the question needs to be asked, and answered. What is the basis of evangelism? What does the Bible say about it? After many years as an itinerant evangelist, and following extensive study of the Scriptures, Michael Cocoris has compiled a definition of evangelism, its biblical bases, its message and principles, and methods for its practice. Not just another how-to-witness book, Evangelism: A Biblical Approach examines the subject from a scriptural perspective and in an inductive manner that will provoke further study and greater evangelism.

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 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 practicing evangelism--its 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), and Missional (church planting, reaching the unchurched).

Evangelism in a Skeptical World How to Make the Unbelievable News about Jesus More Believable

Most Christians already know that they should be telling their friends about Jesus. But they have been poorly equipped with methods that are no longer effective in today's post-Christian world. As a result, many people become frustrated, blame themselves, and simply give up. Evangelism in a Skeptical World is a textbook on evangelism that is ideal for the church or the classroom to equip Christians with the principles and skills they need to tell the unbelievable news about Jesus to friends in a skeptical world.

Many of the older principles and methods of evangelism in the twentieth century no longer work effectively today. In a post-Christian, post-churched, post-reached world we need new methods to communicate the timeless message of the gospel in culturally relevant ways. Dr. Chan combines the theological and biblical insights of classic evangelistic training with the latest insights from missiology on contextualization, cultural hermeneutics, and storytelling. Every chapter is illustrated with real-world examples drawn from over fifteen years of evangelistic ministry. These are methods that really work - with university students, urban workers, and professionals - getting past the defensive posture that people have toward Christianity so they can seriously consider the claims of Jesus Christ.

Field-tested and filled with unique, fresh, and creative insights, this book will equip you to share the gospel in today's world and help as many people as possible hear the good news about Jesus.

"Fasting is the body talking what the spirit yearns, what the soul longs for, and what the mind knows to be true."

-- Scot McKnight

Christianity has traditionally been at odds with the human body. At times in the history of the church, Christians have viewed the body and physical desires as the enemy. Now, Scot McKnight, best-selling author of The Jesus Creed, reconnects the spiritual and the physical in the ancient discipline of fasting.

Inside You'll Find:

  • In-depth biblical precedents for the practice of fasting;
  • How to fast effectively--and safely;
  • Different methods of fasting as practiced in the Bible;
  • Straight talk on pitfalls, such as cheating and motivation.
  • Join McKnight as he explores the idea of "whole-body spirituality," in which fasting plays a central role. This ancient practice, he says, doesn't make sense to most of us until we have grasped the importance of the body for our spirituality, until we can view it as a spiritual response to a sacred moment. Fasting--simple, primitive, and ancient--still demonstrates a whole person's earnest need and hunger for the presence of God, just as it has in the lives of God's people throughout history.

    The Ancient Practices

    There is a hunger in every human heart for connection, primitive and raw, to God. To satisfy it, many are beginning to explore traditional spiritual disciplines used for centuries . . . everything from fixed-hour prayer to fasting to sincere observance of the Sabbath. Compelling and readable, the Ancient Practices series is for every spiritual sojourner, for every Christian seeker who wants more.

    Finding Rest Pack of 25

    Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

    MATTHEW 11:28-30

    THE INVITATION

    Are you stressed? Does your life seem to be in constant conflict? Do you sometimes feel as if there is a burden on your back--a heaviness in your soul--that continually weighs you down?

    If you are struggling to cope with a life that is confusing and out of control, take heart. If you are searching for rest for your soul, there is good news. Jesus is offering a personal invitation to you.

    WHY IS REST SO DIFFICULT TO FIND?

    The work of this world always seems more important than Jesus's invitation in Matthew 11:28. Even though you desire to give your heart and mind a break, it is nearly impossible to turn away from the priorities set in place by the culture you live in.

    Too often, people search for comfort and rest in the form of drugs, unhealthy relationships, self-help books, and even vacations. But these are often just an escape from reality, creating empty promises of relief from the stress of the real world. The rest offered by Jesus Christ is one that lasts for eternity.

    WHERE CAN I FIND REST?

    God's Word (the Bible) says that only a personal relationship with Jesus Christ can bring you true rest for your soul. Jesus calls for you to come to him and he will give you rest. This means that you must turn aside from relying on your own efforts--your attempts to measure up by your own power--and trust solely in Jesus.

    HOW CAN JESUS GIVE ME REST?

    In Matthew 11:29, Jesus says, "Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart." He welcomes you to cast your worries and fears upon him and to believe that he has already paid the price for your sin, your burdens, and your guilt. He will give you rest by promising forgiveness of every sin you ever committed, or ever will, and eternal life with him in the new heavens and new earth when he returns.

    WHAT MUST I DO?

    To receive this wonderful peace and rest that Jesus promises, you must understand and accept the following six important biblical truths:

    1. All people are sinful. Sin comes in the form of the bad things that we say, think, and do. Sins are even the good things done with selfish motivations. All sins are committed in the presence of God, who is holy.

    "For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." (Romans 3:23)

    2. Sin is so serious to God that death is the necessary and just result.

    "For the wages (payment) of sin is death." (Romans 6:23)

    3. There is no way you could do anything good enough to save yourself.

    "For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast." (Ephesians 2:8-9)

    4. Although you deserve to die for your own sins, Jesus Christ (who never sinned) died for you. He was your substitute. He made the payment for your sins when he died on the cross and rose again.

    "Christ died for our sins . . . he was buried . . . he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures." (1 Corinthians 15:3-4)

    5. You must place your trust, not in anything good you have done or will do, but only in what Christ has already done for you.

    "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life." (John 3:16)

    6. You cannot earn eternal life; it is a gift that you either accept or reject. When you receive God's gift, you become his child, and you are adopted into his family.

    "But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God." (John 1:12)

    If you've already trusted Christ as your Savior, here are some things you can do to grow in your relationship with him:

    - Read the Bible to learn more about God and his plan for your life.

    - Pray to God often to share your joys and problems and to confess your sins.

    - Attend a Bible-teaching church where you can worship God and get to know other Christians.

    - Share your faith. You have just received a wonderful gift. Tell someone!
