'The evangelistic mandate', says Alvin Reid, 'is central to the mission of the church in any age'. In this important new book, Reid traces the essence of evangelism -- its history and character -- teaching Christians how to preach the Gospel effectively. Using methods built upon biblical, historical, and theological foundations, this exhaustive guide integrates doctrinal issues with practical matters of methodology, while developing the personal spirituality of those who seek to carry out the Great Commission. By recognizing the timeless aspects of the evangelistic task and adapting them to today's needs and the needs of the future, Reid gives Christians the tools they need to spread the Word with assurance at the dawn of the new millennium.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Alvin Reid gives a very general overview of evangelism. I personally would not consider this book to be academic, it is more of a casual read. I found the authors stories that were meant to prove his points to be long, drawn out and lacking in substance. On the bright side it is an easy read suitable people exploring evangelism for the first time.
