Questioning Evangelism Third Edition$19.99Add to cart
You don’t need to memorize evangelical formulas or answers. You just have to be willing to ask questions.
There was something different about the way Jesus communicated with the lost: He didn’t force answers upon people; He asked questions. So why don’t we?
Campus ministry veteran Randy Newman has been using a questioning style of evangelism for years. In this thought-provoking book, he provides practical insights to help Christians engage others in meaningful spiritual conversations. To Newman, asking questions challenges how we think about unbelievers, their questions, and our message, instead of telling unbelievers what to think.
A perennial best-seller, this third edition includes both revisions of current chapters, such as an expanded discussion on LGBTQ+ issues and the debate on transgenderism, and new chapters that ponder issues such as science and suffering.
Humble Confidence : A Model For Interfaith Apologetics$32.00Add to cart
Today’s cosmopolitan, multicultural, and multifaith environments call for new approaches to apologetics.
The world still needs the good news of Jesus Christ, but to relate the transcultural gospel to diverse and ever-changing contexts, we must free Christian apologetics from dominant Western habits of mind ill-suited to interreligious dialogue. We must listen and speak with both humility and confidence.
Benno van den Toren and Kang-San Tan provide a global, intercultural introduction to Christian apologetics. They present a model of apologetics as crosscultural dialogue and accountable witness, then explore how it plays out in relation to specific contexts and the major world religions-including primal religions, Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, secularism, and late-modern spiritualities. Building on recent developments in apologetics and missiology, as well as their experience teaching internationally in Europe, Asia, and Africa, Van den Toren and Tan offer an approach that is conversational, patient, holistic, and embodied.
Filled with examples from Scripture and real-world experiences, Humble Confidence gives readers a travel guide to help find the most effective avenues for true dialogue in their own settings.
Subversive Mission : Serving As Outsiders In A World Of Need$18.00Add to cart
For many, missions is the story of heroes, martyrs, and the advance of the gospel. For others, it’s the story of colonialism and missionary disasters. So how do we respond to God’s call to love our neighbors as a new era emerges?
Subversive mission is submission–to God and local leaders. Subversive mission offers a new way forward for outsiders called to crosscultural ministry by serving as humble alongsiders. Join Craig Greenfield on this inspiring journey in Asia and beyond as he rediscovers the fivefold missional gifts of apostle, prophet, evangelist, pastor, and teacher, and demonstrates how each of these must look radically different in a crosscultural context. Along the way, you’ll discover your own missional type through the Missional Type Inventory and come face to face with the five most common pitfalls that Westerners face in crosscultural settings.
By the end of this story, you’ll be inspired by a radically different way of working for change in the world. Come alongside. And join God in what he is already doing.
Fulfilling Our Mission$16.99Add to cart
Fulfilling our Mission by noted international evangelist Reinhard Bonnke explores truths, stories, and principles from the Bible that show how to effectively reach out to others with the love of God and the salvation of Jesus Christ. This book builds upon Bonnke’s previous book, Hell Empty, Heaven Full, demonstrating God’s great compassion for the world.
Tens of millions of people came to know Christ through Bonnke’s ministry. As he explains, in evangelism, there is no “right” way of doing things but only right principles, principles that can be drawn from the New Testament.
In Scripture, God equipped the least likely individuals for His providential purposes. He wants each one of us to participate in reaching the world because He deeply loves all people. Where the Holy Spirit provides the tiniest spark, a start can be made. You cannot learn to play the piano better by hearing more lectures about piano-playing techniques. You have to put your fingers on the keys. Evangelism is not a sit-down-and-learn topic alone. It is a hands-on activity, a demand, a challenge, a commission, and a consuming passion!
From biblical times to today, believers have claimed God’s promises and moved forward in faith. The Word, not some subjective impulse, is our authority for action and will bring about success in outreach that causes men, women, and children to know Christ and be brought into the eternal kingdom of God.
Today, Jesus calls us to go into all the world and make disciples. How will we respond? God not only accompanies those who are go-getters, but He also makes and equips them. With the Word as our guide, let us begin a serious and determined effort to fulfill the commission Jesus us gave to reach everyone in the world with the message of His salvation and usher in His return!

Readers will be fueled by testimonies of God’s work, gain new empathy for those God has placed in their lives, be emboldened by confidence in God’s faithfulness, learn to discern and recognize where God is calling them, and be unleashed as salt and light in a dark and corrupted world.
Find that you have what it takes to say yes to God, and be fearlessly and outrageously obedient to the Lord.
Sharing Jesus With Muslims$19.99Add to cart
A practical starting point for Christians to share the hope of Jesus with Muslims.
Since September 11th, 2001, relationships between Christians and Muslims have been defined by fear. Increasing violence in the Middle East has caused Islam to be associated with persecution and terrorism and has led many Christians to view Muslims as the enemy. But the Bible provides clear instruction to move past fear and share the Gospel with all peoples, including Muslims. Every Christian can be an ambassador of Christ to Muslims, even without becoming an expert on Islam.
In Sharing Jesus with Muslims, Fouad Masri encourages Christians to set aside fear, excuses, and differences and share the good news of Jesus.

*Biblical responses to issues relevant to Islam
*Stories with practical application from Masri’s forty years of ministry to Muslims
*Discipleship materials for ministering to Muslims

Hell Empty Heaven Full$16.99Add to cart
Every day, millions of people who don’t know Jesus Christ as their Savior move farther down the dark road to destruction. But as international evangelist Reinhard Bonnke says, hell was never designed for people, and heaven is expecting them! Tens of millions of people have come to know Christ through Reinhard’s ministry. In this book, he shares his contagious passion for bringing the gospel to the lost.
Each chapter in Hell Empty, Heaven Full discusses biblical stories that highlight how God’s priority is saving people and how He wants us to join Him in that process. As Reinhard says, “Our calling is to put a kind hand on the shoulder of the world and turn it round to see God. It will adore Him. The Lord is the Savior…. He loves because to love gives Him joy. He loves beyond all the parameters of human affection and makes even the assault of the cross an expression of His love. His pain asserts it. He finds satisfaction in giving, pouring Himself out to us, surrounding us with wonders, making His redeemed the garden of delight in which He walks. To proclaim the gospel is to move for Him, act with Him, love in Him, and delight in His joy as the privilege, meaning and purpose of all life.”
Filled with vivid illustrations, this book is designed to show you how to reach the lost as Jesus did: with the passion and compassion of the heavenly Father.
Transforming Communication : Progressing From Cross-Cultural To Intercultur$34.99Add to cart
Effectively communicate Christ across Cultures
The gospel message transcends cultures, but human communication does not. In Transforming Communication missionary and professor Vee J. D-Davidson provides principles for the intercultural communication of Christ.
Using her twenty-five-plus years of experience teaching as a Westerner in Asia as a starting point, Davidson provides transferable principles that encourage awareness of context-specific issues and that see opportunities for intercultural communication as wholly unique opportunities, regardless of any perceived communication barriers. Readers from multiple different cultures will be able to apply the principles presented by use of relevant examples, illustrations, and enlightening insights provided from a wide range of Global South and Global North multicultural and intercultural perspectives.
Transforming Communication offers practical principles to encourage and challenge Christian readers to build relationships that might well require engaging with issues that bring them out of their comfort zone but, the book also offers insights and encouraging devotional nuggets that feed into a triad of knowledge-impartation, self-examination and challenge, along with spiritual enrichment for the task.

In this engaging narrative, James Choung weaves the tale of a search for a Christianity worth believing in.

Never Ashamed : Stories Of Sharing Faith With Scoffers And Skeptics$14.99Add to cart
Most books on evangelism deal primarily with different approaches to sharing the good news. From street ministry to personal witnessing, books abound on how to present the gospel in a variety of ways and situations.
But Never Ashamed isn’t a book about how. Rather, it’s a book about why. Author Avi Snyder explains:
*Why we mustn’t be ashamed of sharing the good news in an open and direct fashion.
*Why believers find it difficult to share the good news of salvation, despite the variety of fruit that always abounds.
*Why non-believers often choose to walk away from the claims of the Messiah, even when they know or at least suspect in their hearts that His claims are true.
*Why the early church felt compelled to proclaim His message, regardless of the risks and costs.
More than this, however, Never Ashamed is a book of stories:
*The man who told Avi he wouldn’t stop him from jumping out a window.
*The Marxist lady trying to figure him out who eventually concluded he was a provocateur
*The woman who prayed for God to give her compassion like Him and wept when she received it
*The Soviet guard who helped Avi’s team pass out literature
These and many more encounters that Avi shares will make you laugh, cry, and be filled with joy at the winsome ways in which he brings people to Jesus.

Personal Evangelism : 22 Lessons To Effectively Share The Gospel$12.99Add to cart
SOUL WINNING IS OUR BUSINESS! Jesus made it clear that we are to bring others to His Father. He said, “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” But many Christians don’t know how to win souls for their Savior. They are too timid to speak out, don’t know what to say, or don’t want to offend anyone. Legendary Bible teacher E. W. Kenyon offers a solution in Personal Evangelism: 22 Lessons to Effectively Share the Gospel. He takes readers through all possible scenarios of reaching the lost, from those who have false hopes to the indifferent, from the skeptical to those who have broken fellowship with the church. “Until soul winning becomes the business of our life, we will not lead many from darkness to light,” Kenyon says. “Soul winning is the art of arts. We are selling the greatest thing in the world. The joy that it gives to the one who finds Christ, the blessings that go into the home, can never be estimated. The man you lead to Christ may become a key man in some community, turning a whole section of men to Christ.” Our time is not our own, but belongs to the Lord. When we evangelize to snatch souls from the hands of the enemy, we give them strength, joy, and success, and obtain more stars in our own heavenly crown.
Evangelism : How To Share The Gospel Faithfully$29.99Add to cart
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
*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.
Mere Evangelism : 10 Insights From C.S. Lewis To Help You Share Your Faith$16.99Add to cart
Evangelism is an extraordinary task; it’s what God uses to bring people from death to life. But it has always been difficult.
C.S. Lewis was used by God in the conversions of countless people, from friends and acquaintances in his own lifetime to modern-day readers of books such as The Chronicles of Narnia and Mere Christianity (the most influential Christian book of the 20th century). As Tim Keller comments, “C.S. Lewis was incredibly skilled at getting Christianity across in a way that’s powerful to thoughtful people. So, if we want help with evangelism, there is much we can learn from the clarity and imagination of this hugely influential Christian writer.
You may feel inadequate to the task; after all, there is only one C.S. Lewis. But evangelist Randy Newman skillfully helps us to apply the methods Lewis used (storytelling, humor, imagery and more) in our own conversations.
You will be equipped to talk about your faith and engage with unbelievers wisely, whatever their attitude towards the Christian faith.
Jesus Conversations : Effective Everyday Engagement$14.95Add to cart
A practical how-to guide for Christians who want to share their faith in more effective and natural ways.
How are we to talk about Jesus to someone who does not believe the way we do? Very few of us feel comfortable articulating the truthfulness of Christ’s death and resurrection to a peer outside of the church. Sometimes Christians feel intimidated by the objections of unbelievers who may say, “That’s right for you, but not for me” or “That’s just your opinion.” Jesus Conversations provides questions, answers, and relational tips in overcoming these conversation stoppers. Along with biblical insights and apologetics, readers will see firsthand examples and stories of ordinary people who share the gospel while visiting nursing homes, throwing parties, renting out bars for open- minded skeptics, and more.
Sterrett’s book equips followers of Jesus to become winsome and confident in communicating the truths of the gospel to nonbelievers. It would be most effective for college students and will resonate with those who are familiar with the I Am Second movement.
Witnessing In Everyday Life$9.99Add to cart
Evangelism. Witnessing. Sharing God’s Word. It’s all part of a toolkit that you were given the moment you were baptized into Christ’s family. And it’s a toolkit that anyone can be given through belief in Christ. But evangelism and witnessing sometimes fees as if it’s a put together person, filled to the brim with Christ’s love, talking to broken people. But it’s not. It’s regular, everyday people, broken by sin, talking about God’s love and Christ’s forgiveness of sins to other everyday, broken people who need God. To discover the toolkit you are given, there’s a few questions you might be asking. Like “What is a witness?” or “Why should I witness?” and maybe even “What kind of a witness am I?” Dig into these answers with Rev. Mark A. Wood to see how witnessing is important. Then, using the metaphor of planting a garden-plowing, planting, watering, waiting, and harvesting-you’ll be able to better understand the joys of witnessing to others.
Something Needs To Change$16.00Add to cart
USA TODAY, PUBLISHERS WEEKLY, AND ECPA BESTSELLER – The author of Radical takes readers on a soul-searching journey through impoverished villages in the Himalayan mountains, daring them to make a difference in a world of urgent need, starting right where they live.

In Something Needs to Change, Platt invites readers to come along on both the adventure of the trek, as well as the adventure of seeking answers to tough questions like, Where is God in the middle of suffering? What makes my religion any better than someone else’s religion? and What do I believe about eternal suffering? Platt has crafted an irresistible message about what it means to give your life for the gospel–to finally stop talking about faith and truly start living it.

Searching For Christmas$5.99Add to cart
Discover the awesome God at the heart of the familiar Christmas story and discover the joy, hope, purpose, and belonging we’re all searching for.
Most of us are familiar with the events of the first Christmas-the manger scene, shepherds watching sheep, angels singing their songs, and wise men arriving-but what if there’s more to the story? What if the birth of Jesus is actually the most significant event in all of history and can transform our lives?
This evangelistic book goes beyond the birth of Jesus to look at what he did when he grew up and how he fulfilled the names given to him centuries beforehand by the prophet Isaiah.

Engaging With Mormons$14.99Add to cart
A former Mormon writes an introduction to what Mormons believe and how Christians can reach out to them with the gospel.
Many people see Mormons as just another branch of the Christian church, and to be admired, perhaps, for their family life, morality and upright culture.
But the theology and spirituality of this cult are very far from an orthodox biblical understanding of true saving faith. And yet Christians are often fearful of engaging in conversations about the gospel with Mormons, knowing that there are suspicions and complex issues that lie beneath the surface.
This short book is designed to help both Christians and whole churches to understand more about the beliefs, mindset and motivations of those who are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints (Mormons), and to reach out to them with the good news of the gospel.
Written at a level that everyone can understand, this book emphasizes the importance of forming loving, honest and open relationships as part of the way we engage with our Mormon friends and neighbors, and with those who may come knocking at our doors.
How To Talk About Jesus Without Being That Guy$18.99Add to cart
Most Christians know they should be trying to tell their friends and family about Jesus. But in a post-Christendom world, personal evangelism is viewed negatively–it’s offensive, inappropriate, and insensitive. Recent studies confirm that the majority of Christians rarely evangelize, worried they might offend their family or lose their friends. In How to Talk About Jesus (Without Being That Guy), author Sam Chan equips everyday Christians who are reluctant and nervous to tell their friends about Jesus with practical, tested ways of sharing their faith in the least awkward ways possible.
Drawing from over two decades of experience as an evangelist, teacher, and pastor, Chan explains why personal evangelism feels so awkward today. And utilizing recent insights from communication theory, cross-cultural ministry, and apologetics, he helps you build confidence in sharing your faith, and teaches you how to evangelize your friends and family in socially appropriate ways.
Word On The Street$17.99Add to cart
In the midst of a godless culture, Paul did what was necessary to reach the masses with the message of everlasting life: he reasoned about Jesus “in the marketplace daily with those who happened to be there” (Acts 17:17) and preached on Mars Hill, on the main route to the Parthenon in Athens.
We too are living in the midst of a godless society, and those in the streets desperately need to hear God’s Word. If we are serious about reaching this dying world, let us emulate Jesus and the apostles and preach where sinners gather. In thirty minutes, a good open-air preacher can reach more unsaved people than the average church does in a year.
If you’re ready for something more exhilarating than skydiving, arguably more scary, and infinitely more productive, try preaching the gospel in public.
For nearly fifty years Ray Comfort has preached the gospel in the open air and witnessed one-to-one to thousands. During those years he has learned certain biblical principles that make reaching the lost so much easier.
In this publication you will find everything he learned and everything you need to know:
* Who should do it?
* Where should you go?
* How do you get started?
* What do you say?
With this helpful guide, you too can follow in the footsteps of the Savior and preach the Word on the street. There is no higher calling.
Anyone But Me$17.00Add to cart
Fear is the primary reason we fail to share the gospel with our friends, family, and coworkers. We’re afraid of looking weird or out of touch. We’re afraid we won’t have the right answers to their questions. We’re afraid that if they reject the gospel, they’re really rejecting us. We don’t want to make things awkward or strain our relationships. So we say nothing because our discomfort feels bigger than our loved ones’ ultimate destination if they remain outside of the body of Christ. We know it’s not, but it’s just so hard to get over our fear.
Apologist Ray Comfort can help. In Anyone but Me, he shows you how to overcome your fears by developing ten critical, biblical characteristics so that you can confidently share the message of salvation with those you care about most. If you’ve been longing to see a dear friend, family member, or coworker come to Christ, now is the time to begin becoming the faithful witness they need. Because we never know how much more time we will have to proclaim God’s good news.

Serve Your City$19.99Add to cart
An ARC Resources Title
Through the pages of the Gospels, we see Jesus model a “show and tell” life and ministry to His followers- He “showed” them how to serve by healing the sick, feeding the hungry, and caring for the poor-and while He was demonstrating compassion, He taught them, “telling” them of God’s immense love. This is the way to show God’s heart of compassion for the people in our cities and towns, and this is the way to break down barriers so people will listen to the life-changing message of the gospel of grace. In this book, you’ll sense Dino’s heart, be inspired by his stories and learn from his experiences, as well as many ARC churches that are serving their cities with a Jesus-style no-strings-attached kind of love. This is at the core of who ARC is – a deep passion to see churches thrive as part of the cities they serve.

Tactics 10th Anniversary Edition$19.99Add to cart
In a world indifferent or even opposed to Christian truth, followers of Christ must be better equipped to communicate the timeless of the Christian faith. But how do you have a conversation with someone who is intent on proving you wrong and won’t accept the Bible as a source of authority?
In Tactics, Gregory Koukl demonstrates how to artfully regain control of conversations, keeping them moving forward in constructive ways through thoughtful diplomacy. You’ll learn how to maneuver comfortably and graciously through the minefields of a challenging discussion, how to stop challengers in their tracks, and how to turn the tables on question or provocative statement. Most importantly, you’ll learn how to get people thinking about Jesus.
Drawing on extensive experience defending Christianity in the public square, Koukl shows you how to:
*Initiate conversations effortlessly
*Present the truth clearly, cleverly, and persuasively
*Graciously and effectively expose faulty thinking
*Skillfully manage the details of dialogue
*Maintain an engaging, disarming style even under attack
Tactics provides the game plan for communicating the compelling truth about Christianity with confidence and grace.
Holy Ambition : To Preach Where Christ Has Not Been Named – Second Revised$12.99Add to cart
This vision of, and invitation to, the work of global missions challenges Christians everywhere to cultivate a holy ambition to preach Christ where he has not yet been named.
The apostle Paul had a holy ambition: to preach the gospel to peoples who had never heard. He ached to proclaim Jesus where he had not yet been named. So today, missionaries cross cultures, learn languages, and pour out their lives in word and deed to break through thousands of years of darkness and the reign of Satan over a people who do not know the King of kings and the Savior of the world. Missionaries go to, and minister among, peoples who otherwise have little to no access to the saving news of Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection.
And since Jesus’s Great Commission to make disciples of all nations is still in effect–and since there are thousands of peoples today who have never heard of him–every church should pray that God would not only make all of us evangelists among our own people, but also that he would raise up from among us missionaries to take the gospel where it has never gone before.
Note to the Second Revised Edition: This book was first released in 2011. Since then, John Piper has continued to preach and write about missions. So, to prepare this Second Revised Edition, Desiring God added four chapters of new material, removed about a third of the original, and freshly edited and organized the remainder.
1 Soul At A Time$25.99Add to cart
The lively story of one of the most influential evangelists of all time.For more than five decades Billy Graham (1918-2018) ranked as one of the most influential voices in the Christian world. Nearly 215 million people around the world heard him preach in person or through live electronic media, almost certainly more than any other person. For millions, Graham was less a preacher than a Protestant saint. Graham preached his gospel message to every corner of the world, but he made his mark in other ways, too. He led evangelicals out of the cultural closet and taught them how to function in the public square. His approach changed over time, from militant anti-communism to a more irenic, progressive posture. And throughout his career his preaching continued to resonate, propelled by his powerful promise of a second chance.This narrative biography of Billy Graham shows how he, more than any other individual, helped create and shape the powerful post-World War II evangelical movement in the United States and around the world.

Jonah is famous for being a reluctant evangelist. But God had other plans!
If we’re honest, we are also often very reluctant when it comes to telling others about Jesus. We can learn from God’s dealings with Jonah about how to be effective for the Lord, whom we love and want to serve. We can move from can’t and don’t to can and do.
Like Jonah we need learn to trust his awesome power (chapter 1), experience his sovereign grace (chapter 2), fear his coming judgment (chapter 3) and share his gut-wrenching compassion (chapter 4). All this is perfectly revealed in Jesus, the divine Evangelist, and as we look to him and as the Holy Spirit fills our hearts with his evangelistic compassion, our hearts will sing with the melodic line of Jonah, “Salvation comes from the LORD” (Jonah 2 v 11) and our lives will erupt with the evangelistic enterprise that our cities so desperately need.
