Chafer provides a valuable exposition on the topic of evangelism in this volume. He lays out the specifics of what evangelism does not entail, clearing up any confusion about the nature of evangelism. Chafer then goes on to define what makes up proper evangelism, emphasizing the roles of both God and the community of believers. He covers prayer, the role of the Holy Spirit, and suffering. Chafer addresses this sensitive issue with great tact and grace, showing careful attention to Scripture.

Praise for the Print Edition

No subject was more dear to the heart of Dr. Lewis Sperry Chafer than the teaching of the Scriptures on the spiritual life.

John F. Walvoord, president of Dallas Theological Seminary

I welcome therefore this present book on these fundamental truths. Having had the privilege of seeing it in manuscript, I bespeak for it the candid attention of all who are concerned for the truth of God.

—C.I. Scofield, in the preface to the 1936 edition of The Kingdom in History and Prophecy

I am glad of the privilege of calling attention to a presentation of the way of salvation which is certain to lead all who read it earnestly to a living faith in Christ, and then to a constant joy because of the abundant and assured provision of God for the Christian life.

—W. H. Griffith Thomas, in the preface to the 1917 edition of Salvation
