Evangelism Is. . .

Geneva Press, Feb 1, 1998 - Religion - 152 pages
Drawing on his many years as a pastor, as well as a national church leader and staff member for evangelism, Clinton Marsh confronts head-on the declining membership of the mainline Protestant churches with this biblical and practical book on growing the church into the twenty-first century. Marsh contends that the congregation is at the heart of evangelism. Every activity in a congregation's life proclaims the gospel. Affirming the work of the Holy Spirit, and using the teaching of Jesus as a model, Marsh advocates an approach to evangelism driven by love. Marsh offers practical suggestions and deals with the "motive, the message, and the method" of evangelism in a clear and useful manner. This is a book for lay leaders, pastors, study groups, and church boards.
