Resuscitating Evangelism by father-son duo, Jordan Easley & Ernest Easley, who are both pastors and evangelists. Their shared goal is to “share a biblical strategy for obeying Jesus and bringing new life to evangelism.”
The authors debunk excuses of Christians and churches as to why they don’t evangelize regularly.
This book includes eight chapters and an interlude, which rare feature I’ve never seen in a book before. the Easley’s integrate Scripture, quotes, highlight key points, lists, comparisons, personal experiences, etc.
All of their content is heavily supported by sources and research.
As for me, I liked how the authors pointed out, over discipling the church kills it, if lacks evangelism outside the church. Now that they point that out, i’ve definitely witnessed churches plagued with this perspective.
I admire their passion and drive to promote evangelism to today’s Christians.
I love the authors creativity in using health/medical terminology throughout the book, to unify the book as a whole. The imagery was quite effective and a unique angle to this important topic.
As an author, I can tell these two authors, pairing up, elevates the book, by offering and highlighting their own expertise.
I highly recommend this book to any Christian or church, to further equip them for evangelism.
