EVANGELISM – J. Mack Stiles (2014)

Books on evangelism are a dime a dozen these days.  Much of what passes for “evangelism” is watered-down, pragmatic, and in the final analysis promotes a different gospel (Gal. 1:6).  Tell the Truth by Will Metzger stands head and shoulders above every other book I’ve read about evangelism. The subtitle is a nice summary ofContinue reading “TELL THE TRUTH – Will Metzger (2002 Revised)”
