Evangelism (Paperback)

Author: John MacArthur

Paul’s challenge to Timothy 2,000 years ago remains a clarion call for pastors today: “Do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry” (2 Tim 4:5). 

Because evangelism is the central work of a Christian’s life, there is a great need for pastors to understand what evangelism is and what makes it effective. Much of modern evangelical culture has become memorized conversations, pre-packaged formulas, and programmatic approaches that serve as poor substitutes for the simple proclamation of the gospel. In Evangelism: How to Share the Gospel Faithfully, John MacArthur along with pastors, missionaries, and church planters from Grace Community Church give the summons to return to the basics.

Evangelism covers four primary topics

  • Theological presuppositions and biblical foundations of evangelism
  • Evangelism from a pastoral perspective
  • One-on-one witnessing
  • How outreach fits into and shapes the activities of the local church

You’ll learn theological principles of sharing the gospel and practical approaches to incorporating outreach into your life, including specialized areas, like

  • Sharing the gospel with children and youth
  • Witnessing to those with special needs
  • Working with people suffering from addiction
  • Immigrant outreach 
  • International missions

There is an urgent need for the gospel in today’s fallen world. This insightful guide to biblical evangelism will ignite your passion and equip you to spread the gospel faithfully from your pulpit, in your church, and within your community.
