$17.00Add to cart
Is Christianity good news for the people around you? Talking about your faith can be intimidating. You may wonder, “How do I know what to say to people? What if I can’t answer their questions? What if they think I’m just strange?” Paul Little has faced these fears and found effective, biblical ways to overcome them. In this practical, down-to-earth book, Little offers real-world examples and helpful advice that show how friendly and natural evangelism can really be. He guides readers in knowing both the Bible and the people they’re sharing with, using both words and actions, and responding to common objections and questions. How to Give Away Your Faith has helped equip thousands of readers over more than fifty years. It is now available as the second volume in the IVP Signature Collection, which features special editions of iconic and bestselling books in celebration of the seventy-fifth anniversary of IVP. Thoroughly updated and including a study guide for individuals or groups, this book is as current as it is classic.
Overcoming Walls to Witnessing$4.99Add to cart
vangelism can often be the area in the Christian life that most often causes us to feel inadequate, fearful, and uncomfortable. We know we should be telling people about Jesus, but more often than not, we don’t.
Many resources seek to inform us of the urgency of mission or to encourage us in our witness, but they don’t always address the deep-seated barriers to evangelism that we have built up. We might be encouraged for a time, but unless these walls to witnessing are knocked down we’ll never be confident and effective in our evangelism.
The topics covered in Overcoming Walls to Witnessing are taken from a survey answer to the question, “What is your greatest hindrance in witnessing?” and so address our real reasons for not sharing the gospel. With a warm and engaging style, Dr. Timothy K. Beougher shows us how each barrier to our witness can be knocked down enabling us to confidently share the gospel.
Invitation To Evangelism
$34.99Add to cart
Essential guidance for a lifestyle of sharing God’s good news with a lost world.
What exactly does it mean to evangelize in a Christian sense? And how is such evangelizing supposed to be done? Longtime pastor, evangelist, and professor of evangelism Timothy K. Beougher answers these questions and more from theological, historical, and practical perspectives. Beougher demonstrates God’s goodness in evangelism through relatable anecdotes, Bible teaching, and encouraging instruction. Invitation to Evangelism welcomes believers into the experience of stepping out in faith of behalf of people God loves.
Most Christians know that they should be sharing the good news of Jesus Christ with nonbelievers, and most also know they aren’t witnessing very well, or even at all.

Introduction to Evangelism guides readers through the essential issues of the gospel message, evangelism methods, and witnessing models so they are ready and excited to move out in faith as everyday evangelists.
Beougher’s biblical, theological, historical, and practical teaching revolves around following essential aspects of being an evangelist:
*Having compassion as the motivation for evangelism
*Understanding the good news of Jesus Christ
*Seeing lost people as persons God loves
*Relying on the power of the Holy Spirit
*Paving the way for new believers to share their faith eagerly with others

Gospel And Personal Evangelism
$12.99Add to cart
Evangelism is not only largely misunderstood, it is often all but neglected among Christians today. Many want to share the gospel with others, but feel intimidated and incapable of doing so. Yet God has given us answers in the Bible that instruct and equip us to share the good news with others. In The Gospel and Personal Evangelism, Mark Dever seeks to answer the pressing questions that many Christians ask about evangelism: What is evangelism? Why should we evangelize? Why don’t we evangelize? Who should we evangelize? How should we evangelize? This book draws from New Testament truths and Dever’s personal experience in sharing the gospel in order to help believers apply those truths in practical ways. As readers understand the biblical foundations of evangelism, they will begin to develop a habit of evangelism in their lives and local churches.
Prepare : Living Your Faith In An Increasingly Hostile Culture
$14.99Add to cart
Much like a person who has awaked from a decades-long coma to be introduced to a radically different world, evangelicals are just awakening to the reality that they have lost the culture war in this country.
We are seeing the rapid deterioration and dismantling of a Judean-Christian culture in America – and believers are finding themselves in unfamiliar positions. Values once held sacred are being discarded. Freedoms once offered are being withheld. Biblical absolutes once embraced are being replaced by relativism. Trend lines, unless altered, point to accelerated cultural change and even greater drift from the historic roots of this country.
As a result, there is a growing intolerance towards believers and their message. Increasingly, followers of Jesus are being viewed as narrow, bigoted and hateful.
Yet all of this was predicted by Christ before His departure. Prepare: Living Your Faith in an Increasingly Hostile Culture will set forth a biblical, theological, and practical approach to navigating the challenging days ahead and a reason for hope and optimism – the power of the Gospel and the possibility of societal transformation.
Conversational Evangelism : Connecting With People To Share Jesus
$15.99Add to cart
You want to lead others to Jesus, but how do you witness in a culture disconnected from basic Christian principles? Trusted authors David and Norman Geisler reveal how evangelism today isn’t about laying out the truth and leading someone to walk in it–it’s about forming a relationship and connecting with twenty-first century seekers.
If the idea of more dialogue and less dogma leaves you at a loss for words, this guide will give you the confidence and skills you need to share the gospel in a relational, personal way as you:
*ask questions, listen attentively, and understand what someone believes
*identify the barriers to belief so you can build bridges to truth
*keep conversations going with different personality types
You, your family, and your church can experience exciting breakthroughs and opportunities to evangelize when you shift the focus from witnessing effectively to effectively being a witness through communication and compassion.

Appendix A: Training Materials For Learning G
Picture a gigantic cruise ship filled with happy people. It’s the S.S. Evangelical Gospel. In the midst of their fun and excitement, passengers have not noticed holes in the ship’s side under the water line. Well-meaning leaders are attempting to plug these holes with new methods, technology, social activism and cultural savvy. All these are important, yet the structure of the ship remains compromised by years of neglect. In this thoroughly revised fourth edition of the now classic Tell the Truth, Will Metzger reinstate the truth framework necessary for the survival of evangelicalism. Biblical illiteracy among evangelicals is on the rise. Theological discernment between truth and error is increasingly elusive. We need to be recalibrated not to the changing times but to the changeless gospel. As useful as it is passionate, Tell the Truth will refocus and re-energize a whole new generation to communicate the whole gospel, wholly by grace, truthfully and lovingly. Includes a study guide and new training materials for personal witnessing!
God Has A Wonderful Plan For Your Life
$8.99Add to cart
Why do 9 out of 10 children raised in Christian homes leave the Church? Why do many professing Christians show little or no evidence for their faith? Why do 80-90% of those making decisions for Christ fall away from the faith?
For decades, the world’s most popular gospel message has been drawing the lost by promising God’s wonderful plan for their life. But behind the facade of the wonderful plan message is the reality of the trials, temptation, and persecution that Jesus promised. How can we reconcile the two?
In this life-changing book, best-selling author Ray Comfort explores whether this common gospel approach aligns with real life — and with Scripture. The vital biblical principles he reveals will force you to re-examine your ideas about the gospel — and will teach you how to reach unbelievers the way God intended. A must-read for all who care about the lost.
Master Plan Of Evangelism (Abridged)
$6.99Add to cart
It all started when Jesus called a few people to follow him and share God’s message with their neighbors. We are called to do the same. But evangelism can be difficult–even intimidating. With all the evangelism resources available, where should you turn to find sound advice on how to share the Good News with others?
The answers aren’t found in TV evangelism, easy-evangelism guidebooks, or the latest marketing techniques. Rather, Robert E. Coleman points to the Bible, to the ultimate example found in Jesus Christ.
For more than forty years, The Master Plan of Evangelism has challenged and instructed more than 3.5 million readers. This abridged version for time-starved readers is as fresh, relevant, and effective as ever. Join the movement and discover how you can minister to the people God brings into your life.
Jesus The Evangelist
$19.00Add to cart
Rev. Richard D. Phillips digs into the early chapters of the Gospel of John to discover principles you can use for Christian outreach that were modeled by witnesses for Jesus and by Jesus Himself. Phillips unfolds biblical principles for evangelism by examining the ministry of John the Baptist and the calling of the first of Jesus’ disciples. Then, through a brief study of the Lord’s encounter with the Pharisee Nicodemus, he presents us with a theology of the gospel. Finally, he focuses in on Jesus’ stirring encounter with the Samaritan woman to show exactly how Christ shared the good news.
Phillips’ clear and concise handling of these key stories will both motivate and instruct you in your witness on behalf of Christ. An appendix looks at the relationship between God’s sovereignty and evangelism.
Above All Earthly Powrs
In our postmodern world, every view has a place at the table but none has the final say. How should the church confess Christ in today’s cultural context?
Above All Earthly Pow’rs, the fourth and final volume of the series that began in 1993 with No Place for Truth, portrays the West in all its complexity, brilliance, and emptiness. As David F. Wells masterfully depicts it, the postmodern ethos of the West is relativistic, individualistic, therapeutic, and yet remarkably spiritual. Wells shows how this postmodern ethos has incorporated into itself the new religious and cultural relativism, the fear and confusion, that began with the last century’s waves of immigration and have continued apace in recent decades.
Wells’s book culminates in a critique of contemporary evangelicalism aimed at both unsettling and reinvigorating readers. Churches that market themselves as relevant and palatable to consumption-oriented postmoderns are indeed swelling in size. But they are doing so, Wells contends, at the expense of the truth of the gospel. By placing a premium on marketing rather than truth, the evangelical church is in danger of trading authentic engagement with culture for worldly success.
Welding extensive cultural analysis with serious theology, Above All Earthly Pow’rs issues a prophetic call that the evangelical church cannot afford to ignore.
