Overview

All Christians are called. CAlled to love God with all that we are. Called to serve Him. Called to reach out to the lost. However, when we are honest, the majority of us would admit that we find this last calling the most difficult. We gladly support the evangelistic ministries of other, but most of us feel discouraged by our own attempts at witnessing because of memorized approaches do not seem to be effective

This biblical study of evangelism gracefully reminds us all that the New TEstament model of witnessing is not one-size-fits-all. With compassion for the lost filling every page, Jerram Barrs shows us the variety of approaches used in the New Testament. This the same true, timeless, unchanging Gospel was presented as differently as the audience, calling us to follow its example.
