Here are fresh, enlightening, practical, and logical strategies for doing evangelism in the local church. Johnson's Organismic Evangelism is a new approach that is based on the utilization of the entire organism of the church. Johnson shows how to use these human resources to capture the spirit of Christian love, encouragement, and acceptance. More than a book, this is a source of information for church members, a study resource for church officers, a guide for church committees, and a text for workshops on evangelism (features an outline for workshops). Its concise organization and straightforward writing offer proven methods for accomplishing the job set before us by our Lord -- Go, ye, into all the world!
