    Evangelism Matters

    Baptist Reflections on the Great Commission

    For Bible-believing, gospel-preaching churches, evangelizing the lost is not optional.

    Evangelism Matters provides the right kind of help for churches, organizations, and individuals struggling with evangelism. Showing how evangelism can become a regular part of prayer, teaching, modeling, and practice, this book points out the path faithful evangelists tread and prepares readers for the terrain.

    Shane Pruitt, Matt Queen, and Bobby Worthington have compiled a theological, biblical, practical, and inspiring evangelism guide. Contributors representing distinct evangelism experience, research, and study convey the simple yet complex reality of reaching out with the truth of Christ, covering topics such as:

    • Grasping the content of the gospel Christians share

    • Filling the distinct biblical roles of evangelism

    • Reaching diverse people groups effectively

    • Relying on God fully in evangelizing

    • Keeping both a multigenerational and an eternal perspective

    Evangelism Matters highlights why evangelism must be a primary focus for believers and outlines how to make that happen. Pruitt, Queen, Worthington, and others share valuable resources to sharpen your own, your organization's, or your church's evangelism efforts and reach key groups of people who often miss Christian gospel efforts.
