Enter to Win a Signed Copy of “Evangelism in the New Testament...A Plea for Biblically Relevant Evangelism” (2 Winners Will Be Chosen)

My dear friend Jon Speed sent me a new booklet that he recently wrote. I began reading it on Monday night and couldn't put it down. It's called “Evangelism in the New Testament...A Plea for Biblically Relevant Evangelism”.

Listen to what Tony Miano has to say about it: "In just over 40 pages, Jon accomplishes what many books have not in hundreds of pages. He succinctly and biblically makes the case that confrontational evangelism is the predominant form of evangelism seen in the New Testament. While to a far lesser extent friendship/relationship evangelism is seen in Scripture, it does not look like the unbiblical forms all-too-often practiced today by Christians."

Mark Cahill promoted Jon's book in his most recent newsletter. Here's what Mark has to say: "One of the more fascinating quotes from the booklet is this: “By our reckoning, there are at least 89 instances of Christ and His associates doing evangelism in the four Gospels. Of these 89 instances, 77 happened in the context of confrontational evangelism.” Wow! When you look at those encounters, 87% of the witnessing encounters in the four gospels happened with a total stranger who was confronted with Biblical truth about sin, repentance, Jesus, the cross, and judgment to come. In the book of Acts, it was 83% of the evangelism happened with total strangers. "

Ray Comfort says, "Jon has done a wonderful job of showing exactly what it means to fulfill the Great Commission. "Evangelism in the New Testament" will be a great source of encouragement to those who want to do what Jesus commanded us to do--to go into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature."

Jon signed two copies for me to give-a-way to two of you. Two winners will be chosen for this drawing!

You will be happy to know that if you are not the winner you can Order the booklet, here!

Real shame that it is open to US residents only. We need to know how to do evangelism here 'across the pond' too!

Hey Trish, went out witnessing for the first time this morning with a friend. We had a great and productive time in sunny old England! You, Todd, Ray and Kirk have really inspired us to have a heart for the Lost. Thanks so much.

Hey Trisha,
It was such a blessing for the Lord to allow me to attend Transformed and have a chance to speak with you. I will be posting the pictures on Facebook soon. I am going to try to enroll in the School of Biblical Evangelism this month--God bless WOTM for doing the 50% discount. Please pray for our baby coming soon and for our church. I found the article you told me about "How to Approach Your Pastor" and thank you so much for mentioning it. I would love to win this--I am devouring any info I can get my hands on so I can ask God to use me any way He chooses. I will post the contest on my facebook too.
