Product Description

Evangelism is a necessary component of a healthy faith, and John Bowen's experience in thinking through that implication is the basis for this book. Focusing on the history of evangelism throughout Scripture as well as his own journey, the first half of the book presents what a biblically based evangelistic mindset should look like. Following these threads through the second half of the book, Bowen gives a clear definition of what the Gospel truly is (which is missing from many books on evangelism, strangely enough) as well as addressing some of the toughest questions that often crop up while witnessing, such as the eternality of Hell and why Christians evangelize those of other religions. A proper stress on repentance and faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior gives this manual the perspective it needs to become highly useful in evangelism ministries, churches and personal libraries.

Publisher's Description

Noted author and teacher John Bowen takes a unique look at what it means to witness to one's faith. Evangelism is something that all Christians can do as a "normal" part of being a follower of Jesus. Witty, wise, and biblically grounded, the book challenges in a gentle way. Includes study questions for congregational use.

    I can't recommend this more highly! In the last year or so, Ive read several great books on evangelism. Share Jesus Without Fear & Evangelism Explosion are great with "techniques." Out of the Saltshaker is a classic. Master Plan of Evangelism is superb and a must-read. Living Proof: Sharing the Gospel Naturally is wonderful. I highly recommend all these books.But I have to put Evangelism for Normal People in a class by itself. It started out slow, in a way that I though he was "watering down" the whole topic. But as it got rolling, my whole perspective on evangelism started changing in a more biblical direction. Bowen' treats the big picture of evangelism, encompassing much more of what the Bible has to say on the topic beyond the usual, commonly cited verses. The net result is a perspective on evangelism with greater biblical fidelity and therefore greater likelihood of "success."This is not a book on "personal evangelism methods," in the sense you may think. It is more a book about spreading the good news, getting more souls into the fold, and having their lives transformed by God's grace. With that said, there is a good outline or plan of "how to." You just aren't going to get the usual clever witnessing techniques and dialog examples of "how to share your faith" you may expect out of an evangelism book. Yet this book is not just a lot of blah, blah, blah. It is a real plan to make you and your community an evangelistic community that is a conduit of God's grace and mercy. While the philosophy and approach may be different from the other books mentioned above, it is not incompatible with them. It emphasizes more the role that the community of believers as a community plays in evangelism. The role the individual plays is, however, spelled out too. If you are interested in the spread of the faith, get this book!
