The most urgent task for the church in post–Christian Britain today is to reach its lost population with the saving news of the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. This is literally a matter of eternal life or death. Bernard Palmer is one of the most passionate, effective and fruitful personal evangelists I know. This compelling book will challenge and inspire every Christian who reads it to engage in the vital work of evangelism with renewed determination. Its great strength is that is thoroughly Biblical, exegeting and applying multiple passages to demonstrate that evangelism is the task of all of God’s people, not an optional extra in the Christian life, and a privilege and joy rather than an inconvenient duty.
Peppered with accessible personal anecdotes and the wisdom of great Christian leaders from past generations, he explains God’s glorious plan of salvation,
the irreducible content of the gospel and the priority that evangelism must have. He provides many encouraging examples of faithful witness and shares practical ideas for more effective personal evangelism. It is a book to read carefully, prayerfully and repeatedly, but most importantly a book to read and put into practice.
