John MacArthur
Thomas Nelson, 328 Pages, Hardcover, $29.99

A reader might wonder what could be said about evangelism that would differ from what numerous other books say on soul-winning. MacArthur starts with this premise: “Unfortunately, much of modern evangelism training is anything but helpful. Memorized conversations, pre-packaged formulas, and programmatic approaches have poisoned the evangelical culture, and serve as poor substitutes for the proclamation of the gospel.”

So MacArthur and other pastors writing with him point the reader to, first of all, the theology of evangelism, followed by insight on doing evangelism from the pulpit, doing evangelism in practice, and doing evangelism in the church through working with children, youth, those with special needs, immigrants, and “social outcasts.”

The book also addresses international missions and short-term missions.
