Note: This is a guest post since presently I am busy today teaching class online for seminary students overseas.  This is by Robert Chamberlain.  His blog be found here, here and here!  Yes he blogs in three places!  Go check out his page and give his blogs a follow!

Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. And pray for us, too, that God may open a door for our message, so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ, for which I am in chains. Pray that I may proclaim it clearly, as I should. Be wise in the way you act towards outsiders; make the most of every opportunity. Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.

Mark J. Farnham. Every Believer Confident: Apologetics for the Ordinary Christian.  Sisters, OR: Deep Rive Books, January 31st 2020. 56 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

Looking for a beginner’s introduction to apologetics without the book being too heavily laden with philosophy?  This book would be for you.  I enjoyed this book quite a bit.  The author Mark Farnham is a graduate from Westminster Theological Seminary’ doctoral program in apologetics, home of where the father of Presuppositional apologetics taught at.  But don’t let that intimidate you, Farnham writes in a style that is aimed for the “ordinary Christian” which I appreciated very much.  One thing that stood out to me in this book is the author’s humility even in the beginning of the book.  He admit his own struggle in the past with fear and also lack of confidence to evangelize.  I appreciate that, since he’s modeling what godliness looks like in apologetics which including admitting your weakness but also trusting in God for help.

For those who are not strangers of this blog you will know I do a lot of my evangelism offline and on college campuses.  I don’t think I talk about my evangelism much but I do from time to time on here.  In the post I have written “ and gave my account of an “Intellectually Bipolar Secular Humanist College Student on Sexuality.”

This morning I read Lee’s post on his blog titled “Wonderful News! 28 States Act to Restore Free Speech on Campus.”  This was wonderful news for me to hear.

Most of the time my evangelism does not face any problems with authorities.  But that doesn’t mean it never happen so the more clarity and laws there are protecting campus freedom of speech the better.

Ray Comfort. What Did Jesus Do?: A Call to Return to the Biblical Gospel.  Bartlesville, OK: Genesis Publishing Group, July 25th 2005. 176 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

This is a good book on how to evangelize.  This is written by Ray Comfort, who is quite an evangelist himself.  I love Ray Comfort’s own personal example of being an evangelist.  He wrote this book in an manner that is easy to understand and also practical.  Today’s contemporary church is often filled with bad doctrines and light on the Gospel so there’s a crisis with how Christians evangelize today in a manner that is unbiblical and unfaithful to God and the Gospel.  So this work is much needed.  I personally got this book as part of a discipleship tool with some of our guys in church to train them to think not only biblically about evangelism but to live it out.

“Almost Half of Practicing Christian Millennials Say Evangelism Is Wrong”

The above statement is the title of a 5 February, 2019 article published by the Barna Group. It caught my attention immediately when I read it and just as quickly prompted the question “What does it really mean?” So I read the article. Here’s some background context from the article:

I know some of you on WordPress has been moved by the post “Sharing (Re-blogging, Social Media) Is Caring” to reblog other posts.

This post is similar to that spirit; but different in application.

I wrote a guest post for the blog God’s Grace, God’s Glory!  Fran Rogers blogs there and her blog is worth the follow for biblical contents.  In addition she has also written books with biblical truths.  I have reviewed one of her books here.

For the guest post I wrote on her blog click HERE.

What follows below is part two of a two part series!  The first post was on Monday.

Starting a Conversation 

In a previous post titled “What is Evangelism?”, the following definition of what it means ‘to evangelize’ was presented: 

To evangelize is to present Christ Jesus to sinful people in order that, through the power of the Holy Spirit, they may come to put their trust in God through Him.” 

The article proposed that this definition defined four important aspects of personal evangelism: 

  1. It defines the mission of the evangelist– “to present Christ”. 
  2. It defines theprimary audience for the gospel message – “sinful people”. 
  3. It defines the problem the gospel message addresses – “our sin”.
  4. It defines the power behind both the gospel message and the response to that message – the Holy Spirit, thus establishing the sovereignty of God in the salvation of men.

Armed with the above definition, and with a burden for a lost loved one, friend, or even a perfect stranger, you are ready to go. How does it start?
