Product Description

Evangelism is more than a program.

Every few years, churches jump into the latest evangelistic fad. Leaders administrate the new program, and members go on a raid. But picture a church where evangelism is simply part of the culture. Leaders share their faith consistently and openly. Members follow, encouraging one another to make evangelism an ongoing way of life.

Such is the way of evangelism presented by this brief and compelling book. No program here. Instead, it just might give your church a new way to live and share the gospel together.

Publisher's Description

Warning against the temptation to uncritically embrace the latest evangelistic fad, this book will help churches cultivate a culture of evangelism within the context of community. Part of the 9Marks: Building Healthy Churches series.

Author Bio

He has worked for many years with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship in the United States. He is the author of Marks of the Messenger and Speaking of Jesus.

Endorsements

Anyone who knows Mack Stiles knows he would find it difficult to be boring, even if he decided to be. The book you are holding incites Christians, not least pastors, to burn to see evangelism become part of the local church's culture, a driving component of its spiritual DNA. This book is rich in practical implications, not despite its incessant focus on Jesus and the gospel, but precisely because of such focus. It deserves to be read, pondered, and implemented.
-D. A. Carson,
Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

The best book on evangelism would be a book that gets right to the heart of the issue and that is written by one who is himself an evangelist. In other words, it would be this book. Mack Stiles is one of the most natural, effective, determined, indefatigable evangelists that I know. I would want to know what he thinks about evangelism, whether it comes in a conversation, a letter, or an entire book. In this short volume, Mack conducts a clear and biblical exploration of how church fellowship multiplies individual evangelism. Every reader will be inspired, encouraged, and equipped to be a congregational evangelist. For the sake of the church, the gospel, and the world, this book belongs at the top of your reading list.
-R. Albert Mohler Jr.,
The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

God gifted Mack Stiles as an evangelist, and this book is the overflow of that gift. I know of few works that combine the theological rigor, pastoral wisdom, and personal experience that Mack packs into this short book. In places I was encouraged, in others challenged. I loved reading this book and recommend it heartily.
-J. D. Greear,
The Summit Church, Durham, North Carolina

Mack Stiles writes about developing a culture of evangelism in a way that allows the reader to see it! We not only read the truth in this book, we drink in a vision for how our church families can live in a rich, dynamic way. This may be the shortest but most important book you ever read for the life of your church and the spread of the gospel.
-Thabiti M. Anyabwile,
First Baptist Church of Grand Cayman

I am genuinely excited about this book. Stiles' books on evangelism are terrific because they combine practical help with theological maturity. And he actually practices what he prescribes.
-Kevin DeYoung,
University Reformed Church, East Lansing, Michigan

Mack Stiles has written an outstanding book not just about sharing the gospel (though it is about that) or about being a personal evangelist (though it's that, too). He's written a book about how the local church actually helps us share the gospel - eases the burden, instructs, excites, cooperates. Read this little book and be encouraged!
-Mark Dever,
Capitol Hill Baptist Church, Washington DC

I read this engaging book in a single sitting because I was so taken by its content and spirit. Evangelism is a primer on how the Bible addresses the crucial subject of sharing the gospel. I anticipate its wide and enthusiastic reception.
-Daniel L. Akin,
President, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary

Plenty of books discuss individual evangelism. This one, however, zeroes in on an entire culture. Not methods or programs, but an ethos. Spread this book through your church and see what happens.
-John Folmar,
The United Church of Dubai

It did not take long for this book to become my favorite book on evangelism - in part because I could not put it down! The gospel is so clear and the help I received is so tangible. But let the reader count the cost. It may stir something within you that you cannot shake. I will now never be satisfied with anything less than cultivating a culture of evangelism in the church I pastor. I praise God for what he gave me through this book and I pray for more.
-Jason C. Meyer,
Bethlehem Baptist Church, Minneapolis, Minnesota

Imagine a local church where every member knows the gospel and walks in step with it, where all are concerned for unbelieving people, where it is natural for leaders and members to talk about evangelistic opportunities, and where members are regularly inviting unbelievers to read the Bible together or to attend small group Bible studies or Sunday services. If that sounds encouraging to you, then youÂ’ll want to read this book and let Mack guide you step by step toward a culture of evangelism where evangelism is simply a natural outflow of the gospel life.
-Juan R. Sanchez Jr.,
High Pointe Baptist Church, Austin, Texas

    It all began when Mark Dever wrote "Nine Marks of a Healthy Church" more than a decade ago. In subsequent years, Crossway has intermittently released a series of small volumes expanding upon those individual themes, entitled "Building Healthy Churches." Mack Stiles' "Evangelism" is one of the latest in that series. In simple and straightforward language that does not fall back upon the creation of merely another "church program," the writer defines the subject of sharing one's faith as a natural outflow of one's life in Christ. The very word "evangelism" is one that ironically strikes dread and fear in the hearts of most Christians. That is because we have tended to make it something that is "optional" and "unnatural" to Christian living. Stiles' plea is that local churches develop a "culture of evangelism" where its members approach sharing their faith as a corporate as well as individual responsibility, working together and trusting the Spirit of God. He is careful to remind us that no one comes to faith because of us, but that God chooses to use us as instruments of making the Gospel known. Those looking for a "how to" manual will not find this book to be very helpful, but for those looking for a practical approach to speaking the Gospel into the lives of others, there is much wisdom to be found here. This is probably the most practically helpful and encouraging work I have read ion this subject in several years.
