This a a great read on the who, what, why and how of Evangelism. If you don't have this one - get it, read it and put it to use. Let me know what you think.

How do you evangelize? What do you say? What should you say? Stumped on how to share the basics? We shouldn't be but we often are during those situations. Mark Dever sums it up best in his The Gospel and Personal Evangelism where we read: ...the good news is that the one and only God, who is holy, made us in his image to know him. But we sinned and cut ourselves off from him. In his great love, God became man in Jesus, lived a perfect life, and died on the cross, thus fulfilling the law himself and taking on himself the punishment for the sins of all those who would ever turn and trust him. He rose again from the dead, showing that God accepted Christ's sacrifice and that God's wrath against us had been exhausted. He now calls us to repent of our sins and to trust in Christ alone for forgiveness, If we repent of our sins and trust Christ, we are born again into a new life with God (pg. 43).
