    Apart from "The World's Ten Greatest Evangelists & How I Won The Other Nine by D. Moore" [​IMG] I would recommend "Tell It Often - Tell It Well" by Mark McCloskey, published by Here's Life Publishers, San Bernadino, CA92402, 1985. A thorough work on personal evangelism.

    IU'm a big fan of "I Belive in Evagelism" by Watson, and "Evangelism in the Eatly church" by Green

    My favorites are "Let the Nations Be Glad!" by John Piper and "Effective Evangelistic Churches", "High Expectations", and "Surprising Insights from the Unchurched and Proven Ways to Reach Them" all by Thom Rainer.

    Warm Christian greetings"!

    If you want to be "stirred up" read Oswald Smith's "The challenge of Missions". It is rather dated but still has a powerful message.

    Kind regards

    "Let the Nations be Glad" by Dr. John Piper is the best work on Missions. It is so thorough.

    Out like Jack Hyle's type "evangelism".

    PreachtheWord:

    Didn't you know that LET THE NATIONS BE GLAD! is essentially a "Reformed" Missions manual?

    Okay by me. Of course, reformed theology doesn't scare me. What scares me is the number of people who think witnessing is what Jack Hyles did.

    Out like my patience for that stuff.

    PreachtheWord:

    You still haven't explained the "out with...." phrase. Care to elaborate?

    Hyles. Doesn't that belong in the "fundamentalist" forum?

    No. I do teach a Sunday school class in a church about 90 minutes SE of SBTS though.

    Do you have a problem with Piper (or SBTS)?

    Defensive?

    I love Piper's book! [​IMG] I was telling Preachtheword that it was essentially a Reformed missions manual because of things he has written on other posts (from a perspective that didn't seem to appreciate the Reformed position).

    I think very highly of SBTS. In fact, I would say that it is the second greatest seminary in the whole world! [​IMG]

    No. I'll credit my misunderstanding of your questions to the my inability to hear the inflection of your voice. Sorry. [​IMG]

    Reading you loud and clear Rev. G. BTW, have you read his book on preaching (that is advertised as part 1 to "Let the nations..."'s part 2? I haven't yet. I did see that there will be a new edition of the "Let the nations..." out early next year with updated stats.

    ;)

    Are you talking about THE SUPREMACY OF GOD IN PREACHING? If so, then yes. If you are speaking of another book, then no.

    Rev. G

    P. S. (BTW, the reason I said, "You are at SBTS, aren't you?", or words to that effect, is because I had asked you about it elsewhere and then kept seeing your posts and getting an idea of your beliefs).
