Well-organised into accessible sections, this book is rooted in the Bible and is full to the brim with quotations, allowing further study of the topics discussed. It sets out what the gospel is, why personal evangelism is important, and how we should go about it.
Tough theological issues surrounding evangelism are examined - such as looking at how God's sovereignty affects our evangelism. However this is no dry textbook of theology - topics like God's sovereignty are directly applied to how we share the gospel with our friends.
The God-Man-God framework for the gospel is set out – this will be familiar to those who've been to a CMF Confident Christianity course, or avid readers of Nucleus. By remembering just five headings (God, Man, God, What if I don't? What if I do?), it is possible to organize the key facts of the gospel in our minds. We can then present the whole gospel in a minute or two if needed, or answer questions like 'so do you really believe in hell, then?', or 'why did Jesus have to die?' in the context of the whole gospel. Though easily read, this book will transform how we talk about Jesus.
