An excellent resource for exploring and digging deeper into evangelism in a classroom, personal, or group study environment. One of just a handful of books on this topic I would readily recommend (including Dr. Reid's other book "Sharing Jesus without Freaking Out").

A very comprehensive book on the theology and methodology of evangelism. It is throughly Biblical and yet practical. I could see it used as a seminary text but also as a small group study in a church.

I think I have found what I will use as my premier resource for evangelism in church and personal ministry. This volume by Alvin Reid is at once a passionate call for evangelism and a practical guide to several aspects of it. A Foreward by Thom Rainer and an Afterword by Roy Fish tells you type of book this one is going to be. It did not disappoint.

I loved Part 1 that was nine chapters on why evangelism is so essentially Biblical. It was so well done and accurate. It had the flavor and fervor of

I thought this book was an excellent resource as a guidebook to evangelism. I especially appreciated the section on being intentional in evangelism. I think this would be a great resource for leaders in the church seeking to create a culture of evangelism in their church, as well as lay-people who want to grow in this area of their life. Evangelism is an essential ministry for all believers, so it is important to be well equipped. This book is an excellent starting point to equipping yourself an ...more

A far too exhaustive look at evangelism. While I believe evangelism is an essential part of one's faith, Reid goes into way too much detail. The best part is the practical ideas. Spends most of his time making a case that evangelism is the most important thing a Christian can do. Makes his point and then continues to make it over and over again.
Alex Hannis
No doubt this book has great content and helpful, practical information. Unfortunately, this book is too exhaustive both with content and personal stories and fluff. I think this book could have been at least 100 pages shorter (maybe more).

This review is in no way reflective of Doc Reid, who is one of the godliest, warm, and pastoral men at Southeastern Seminary.

Dr. Reid is one of my favorite teachers, writers, and people. When it comes to studying and teaching on evangelism and spiritual awakenings, Dr. Reid is well studying. Most importantly: he believes in the next generation! This is a must read!

Too exhaustive in my opinion. Some chapters are better than others. Several good insights, however.
Romans Sendriks
The book has a good content, but it has not bibliography list which might be useful for further researches on the given topic.
Jeff Hoenshell
Very thorough work on evangelism.

While I might disagree with the author's view of how God's salvation is applied to sinners, he had some great practical ideas for evangelism.
Chad
An accessible, simplified introduction into the nature and practice of evangelism.
