Overview

Since its publication in 1986, the message of Power Evangelism has been embraced around the world. Terms such as "power encounter," "divine appointment" and "signs and wonders" are now common among Christians form a variety of different traditions.  Countless books and review have been written defending or attacking its concepts, and seminaries have held theological symposiums to debate the pros and cons of power evangelism, which Wimber defined as "a presentation of the gospel that is rational but that also transcends the rational... a spontaneous, Spirit-inspired, empowered presentation of the gospel [that is] preceded and undergirded by demonstrations of God's presence."
John Wimber believed that God called rank-and-file believers to a powerful influence on the world, and in this revised and udpated version, he and Kevin Springer describe 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, Wimber demonstrates how the incredible power of God can manifest in our world when we submit control of our lives to the Holy Spirit. This new edition also includes chapter-by-chapter study guides for group and individual use and updates on how power evangelism is being used in the Church today.

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.
