Sharing the good news is one of the most caring things we can do for other people, so why are we so reluctant to do it? Bernard Palmer encourages us to speak openly about Jesus to the people around us. Making sure we understand the gospel we have been instructed to proclaim, he guides us through the biblical basis and examples, and gives us some practical tips for evangelising.

Bernard V. Palmer is an evangelistic Bible teacher, Trustee of the Christian Medical Fellowship and author of ‘Cure for Life’. He is married to Rosy.
Is the privilege of telling people about salvation through Jesus Christ confined to the ‘professionals’ – evangelists, pastors and clergy? Mr Palmer thinks otherwise, and, what I have long admired, practices what he preaches when urging us believers to be bolder in sharing the good news with others. I suspect that many will find, as I have, that what he has to say is a word in season.

This passionate and warm–hearted practical guide will motivate not depress, instruct and not simply incur guilt and above all encourage those who respond to its message to see that our everyday lives can count in new ways for Christ and his Kingdom. It packs a challenge which we need to hear and heed.

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.

This excellent book will be a blessing to any believer looking to be equipped for the work of spreading the gospel to the lost. It is passionate without being manipulative. It convicts with the logic and glory of the gospel rather than guilt. It is thoroughly Scriptural and immensely practical without resorting to pragmatism or faith in methodologies. This book has helped me personally and will be a resource I look to for to help in equipping others. I highly recommend it.
