In this re-issue of W. Oscar Thompson's classic book on evangelism, Thompson shows Christians how to spread the love and good news of Christ by building and repairing personal relationships. Evangelism today often emphasizes preaching to strangers, anonymous crowds, and in foreign countries. This book hits readers where they live, teaching them that the most effective way to witness is through a simple plan of meeting the needs of close family first, then friends, and then all others. This book is a living testament of the brilliance of Oscar Thompson and his innovative seven stages for making disciples.
