Editorial Reviews

C. J. Mahaney
"Perhaps no part of the Christian life and ministry is easier to neglect, postpone or just plain ignore than evangelism. And this is why I love reading books on evangelism by true practitioners, who love the lost and consistently live out this burden. Mack Stiles is one of those guys! Mack loves people who need the gospel. If you, like me, want to grow in evangelism, I highly recommend Mack's book."
Thabiti Anyabwile
"Most of what we read about evangelism puts heavy emphasis on evangelistic methods--'how to' evangelism. When's the last time you read a book that focused attention on the evangelists themselves--their hearts, their minds, their lives and, most of all, their message? This is such a book, and it's explosive. Marks of the Messenger challenges and encourages us, and makes us laugh and weep along the way. Mack Stiles is the most gifted evangelist I know. And this book is saturated with biblical truth and personal wisdom."
Lindsay Brown
"A fresh and refreshing encouragement from a gifted evangelist. Mack Stiles has lived out what he teaches, both in North America and in the
Middle East. His material has been field-tested in two completely different parts of the world! So the principles you find in this book will be transcultural and applicable to believers seeking to bear witness to Christ wherever they are located in the world."
D. A. Carson
"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. Like its author, the book is irrepressible. Better yet, it is faithful to Scripture while overflowing with that least common gift, common sense. Read it, practice it, then buy some more and pass them out."
