Overview

New theories come and go about methods of evangelism involving psychological concepts, social theory, marketing models, church growth strategy and obscure texts applied more widely than intended. The irony is that we have a model for evangelism staring us in the face in the story of the early church told by Luke through the book of Acts.So, it's time to realign your thoughts on evangelism in tune to what God has to say. It's time for ACTive Evangelism.Derek Prime guides us through the book of Acts giving very practical examples of how to do evangelism in the workplace, with our neighbours, to our families, as a church and individually. In each chapter Prime looks at the context the disciples were ministering in, the challenges they would have faced, the methods they used, and then applies it to our situation today.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Derek Prime continues to serve God and his people in giving us these splendid studies on evangelism, based on the Acts of the Apostles. The author's passion for Christ underlies every page and under girds the whole book. Equally, though, it pastoral, sensitive and wise, arising from the author's considerable experience. I highly recommend this text for church groups embarking on serious outreach or needing good motivation to do so." ~ Paul Barnett (Retired Bishop of North Sydney)
