Overview

The message of Power Evangelism has been embraced around the world, and the book that started it all has become a classic, with more than one million sold. In 2006, Christianity Today named it one of the fifty most significant Christian books published in the past fifty years. This revised and updated edition describes the releasing of God's power through signs and wonders to refresh, renew, heal, and equip His people. Drawing from the teaching of the New Testament and with illustrations from his own experience, Vineyard leader John Wimber persuades the reader to "yield control of our lives to the Holy Spirit." Though Wimber died in 1997, his teaching continues to spread throughout the Vineyard movement, through the broader renewal movement, and to Christians across the globe, even those who do not consider themselves charismatic. Coauthor Kevin Springer--also a Vineyard pastor--has found that since its first publication, the influence of Power Evangelism has been explosive. This edition includes a chapter-by-chapter study guide and reflects changes Springer and other power evangelism practitioners have made in presentation--not in content--for readers in the new millennium.

Meet the Author

JOHN WIMBER (1934-1997) was a charismatic pastor and one of the founding leaders of the Vineyard Movement. He pastored Anaheim Vineyard Christian Fellowship (1977-1994), where he emphasized intimacy with God, authenticity in worship, and church planting, which he called "the best form of evangelism." Wimber became a well-known speaker at international charismatic conferences, focusing on what he called "power evangelism" and healing through the power of the Holy Spirit. His bestselling books Power Evangelism and Power Healing continue to influence the next generation of ministry leaders.

Kevin Springer is president of PRISM Leadership Group, a consulting ministry devoted to helping pastors and churches clarify and fulfill their dreams and visions. He and his wife, Suzanne, also conduct marriage seminars and retreats.

    Highly recommended!

    Jesus calls us to reach the lost. It's not easy to go out in public and start witnessing - but if it's hard, the we're doing it wrong! John Wimber does an excellent job in teaching us how to witness the right way - led by the Holy Spirit.
    Wonderful teaching - with some workbook sections as well. Great for a group study or to read on your own.
