I am teaching a five week series on evangelism. The first week I provided the class with a list of resources I have found helpful. It is not a complete list by any stretch, but simply resources I have read, studied, used, and found beneficial in recent years. Perhaps they can encourage you as well.
Becoming a Contagious Christian, by Bill Hybels & Mark Mittelberg. Provides an action plan for making an effective difference in the spiritual lives of others. The most helpful part was the section on discovering your natural style of evangelism.
Just Walk Across the Room: Simple Steps Pointing People to Faith, by Bill Hybels. Follow-up book to Becoming a Contagious Christian. Helpful principles on how to develop relationships with non-Christians and begin conversations about spiritual things.
Share Jesus Without Fear, by William Fay with Linda Evans Shepherd. An expanded treatment of Bill Fay’s seminar and booklet. Makes evangelism natural and non-threatening.
I’m Glad You Asked: In-depth answers to difficult questions about Christianity, by Ken Boa & Larry Moody. Helpful resource on apologetics.
Out of the Saltshaker & into the World: Evangelism as a way of life, by Rebecca Manley Pippert. Classic book on lifestyle evangelism. Rather than focus on techniques and methods, the author focuses on Jesus and the quality of life he calls us to live.
How Can I Share My Faith Without an Argument? Condensed version of Bill Fay’s method of evangelism. Extremely practical and helpful.
Share Jesus Without Fear: An audio presentation based on the book by William Fay. – 70 minute seminar; helpful review.
The Search for Meaning: Two friends discuss honest questions about God, by Bill Kraftson & Lamar Smith. – Six audio CDs produced by Search Ministries in which two friends dialogue about the 12 questions most asked by non-Christians about spiritual things. Natural dialogue, conversational form.
Probe Ministries – A Christian worldview and apologetics ministry offering resources to help you think biblically about a wide range of topics.
