This is the most convicting book I've ever read! It reinforces the ultimate purpose of salvation and even our survival. Loaded with personal experiences of Mark Cahill in the ministry field, this book states the when, what, where, how and why of evangelism.
The book begins with these lines… Three-hundred-million years from now, what will be the only thing that will matter?… the only thing that will matter is who is in heaven and who is in hell. And if that is the only thing that will matter then, that should be one of our greatest concerns now.-Mark Cahill
The book is an amazing inspiration for believers. And I have read from his recommends and from the hundred odd incidents he himself mentions in the book that Mark Cahill lives what he preaches. And that is more inspiring than anything else. It's not just a book with the how-tos, but someone out there is living a committed life of evangelism, all walks of his life!
Many of the experiences Mark Cahill has shared in this book is thought provoking and demands action from our side. Its a shame if we remain silent.
As you read this book, you will realize what a wonderful gift we have, what so many of them, even our close friends are missing and that we need to do something right away. It will give you an urge to break through and get the word out. Such is the structure and content of this wonderful book. Here are few insights into the book which will make you want to read through and I highly recommend you do!
It's a win-win-win situation all the time… So many excuse-how it all does not matter-overcome them… Few experiments-examples-how it works… Several examples to begin conversation with ETERNITY… So many tricky questions and very good answers…
There are divine appointments all over the place. Just step out in faith, and watch God show them to you.-Mark Cahill

Guys, I don't really know what exactly what to say, but this book is a must read.
We should be evangelizing to the world, but we always have these unspoken fears within us. Well, this book uncovers lies from the devil and gives you great tips on how to evangelize.
Now I've heard that some people are against books that are like a "how-to" list on how to evangelize. This book is different. It shows you how to connect with certain types of people, good conversation starters, and more.
Mark Cahill has had experience and wants the whole world to know Jesus. He's encouraging you to tell others about Jesus. If you want to "do hard things," then "start here."
Take my word. I'll show you how good this book is. I have asked the author himself to share with you all the majority of the introduction of the book. Here it is:
"Three-hundred-million years from now, what will be the only thing that will matter? Will it matter how much money you make? Will it matter what… car you drove? Will it matter who won the NCAA football and basketball titles this year?…
"Three-hundred-million years from now, the only thing that will matter is who is in heaven and who is in hell. And if that is the only thing that will matter then, that should be one of our greatest concerns now. Jesus tells us in Matthew 18:11, "The Son of Man has come to save that which was lost." If it is of the utmost importance for Jesus to reach the lost, shouldn't it be a major priority for you? The real question then is: What are you doing of significance today that will matter three-hundred-million-plus-years from now?
"Second Corinthians 5:10 assures us that "we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad." Do you really believe, as a follower of the Lord Jesus Christ, that there will be a day on which you will stand before his throne? We will each go one-on-one with the God of this universe. Can you imagine that? Do you think it will matter on that day whether you boldly shared your faith with unbelievers, whether you told a very lost and dying world about Jesus-the only answer for a soul? Yes, it will. It will matter whether you shared the most precious thing you have with everyone you could.
"I have envisioned standing before the throne of God, and I believe certain thoughts are going to hit me. When I look at Jesus, I think it will occur to me that He is more real than I have ever imagined. I will be struck by how sinful and impure I am in front of Total Holiness. It will amaze me how beautiful Heaven is, well beyond what I could have ever dreamed. But then I thing it will really hit me that I'll wish I would have shared Him a whole lot more than I ever did on earth.
"That is what this book is about: sending every believer out with confidence, boldness, and love of Jesus Christ to reach a very lost and dying world. People will not believe in Jesus and call upon Him for their salvation unless they hear about what He has done for them. And how can they hear unless each Christian takes the great name of Jesus to every person possible?
"Over the last seven years, I have had the opportunity to witness to several thousand people individually. I have been humbled through that experience and by the lessons God has taught me along the way. This book distills what I've learned in those seven years, which I hope will shorten the learning curve for others. My prayer is that you will find this book to be very encouraging, and yet encouraging. First Thessalonians 5:11 says, "Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do." We all need encouragement to be the best what we can be for Jesus Christ. My intent is not to make you feel guilty because you have not been sharing your faith like you should. Instead, I hope through these pages to encourage you to be bold for the Lord. This book will challenge you that you have the only answer for eternity. And it will equip you to share that answer using very practical, biblical, techniques for reaching the lost… .
"Today, approximately 150,000 people will die. I wonder where each of them will spend eternity?… step out of your comfort zone, trusting the Lord in what He can do through you. Always remember that, every time you step our of your comfort zone, you step right into God's comfort zone… ."
Now you know how awesome this book is! Go and buy it! It is a very easy read, but it challenges you in your faith! Now, I want to read the book again!
"When some friends and I got your book "One Thing You Can't Do in Heaven," my witnessing life changed overnight!!! It went from 5% to 75%, just like that! And that is only because I can't read well. Reading is hard work for me. It does not come natural. I made it partway through your book and hit the streets Your book, and prayer, is the number one thing that took me from a lock-jaw, fearful witness to a bold, fearless witness! So faith building!! These have taken my passion for fulfilling Mark 16:15 from 75% to 99%. I am a carpenter by trade, but when I have half a chance, I go find people to share the good news with!"
