Christian Publishing House, Jan 7, 2017 - Religion - 354 pages

 THE EVANGELISM HANDBOOK is a practical guide (for real life application) in aiding all Christians in sharing biblical beliefs, the Good News of the Kingdom, how to deal with Bible critics, overturning false beliefs, so as to make disciples, as commanded by Christ. Matthew 24:14; 28:19-20; Ac 1:8

Why do Christians desire to talk about their beliefs? Jesus said, "And this gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed in the whole inhabited earth for a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come." (Matt 24:14) This is the assignment, which all Christians are obligated to assist in carrying out. Jesus also said, "You shall love your neighbor as yourself." (Matt. 22:39) Jesus commanded that we "go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them" and "teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you." (Matt. 28:19-20) If one failed to be obedient to the great commission of Matthew 28:19-20, he or she could hardly claim that they have a genuine faith. All true Christians have a determination to imitate God, which moves us to persist in reflecting his glory through our sharing Bible beliefs with others.

Within the heart of each true Christian, is the desire is that we "love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind." (Matt 22:37) If this is the case, we too would be patient, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.' (2 Pet 3:9) For the true Christian, "for out of the abundance of the heart, his mouth speaks." (Lu 6:45) The apostle Paul helps see the importance of the work that lies ahead,

Romans 10:14 Updated american Standard Version (UASV)

14 How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how will they hear without someone to preach?
