I took advantage of all my learning, training and field
experience, 36 years worth, and combined them into two Textbooks:
this one titled Evangelism: The Time is Now!
(Basic Program) and Relationship With Jesus The Key To Effective
Program). One of the unique qualities of these two textbooks is
that they draw upon all Biblical streams of Christianity and
interrelate the Conservative, Evangelical, Charismatic concepts
of Evangelism without compromise.
I mean EVANGELICAL
in the sense that Jesus' will for the Church is to seek and to
save the lost, and to seek and to save the lost by drawing men to
Himself. I mean CHARISMATIC in the sense that in
order for our Evangelism to be effective and ministered in love
that it must be Jesus centered and be motivated out of love
relationship with Jesus. I mean CONSERVATIVE in
that our Evangelism, Evangelistically Charismatically oriented,
must be motivated within the guidelines of Scripture and be
brought into submission to the Bible in its total context to be
certain that our Evangelism and ministering is truly Jesus
centered and truly motivated out of love relationship with Jesus.
These two Textbooks
combine these three streams of Biblical Christianity and their
teaching on Evangelism into one program. It is a more wholistic
approach to Evangelism, but you do not have to be a college
graduate to go through it and understand it's content. When I wrote them I strove to keep them simple enough for
anyone to understand but complete enough that any Bible scholar
could appreciate it and their comments after critiquing the
material confirms it. When I finished the 1983 version of this
textbook three different College Professors with doctorate
degrees, all Evangelists, all published authors in Evangelism of
three different Christian faiths critiqued the material. One said
to me, "I have never read anything equal to this anywhere.
Your depth and completeness are astounding." The program was
recommended to both graduate and undergraduate ministry majors. A
very nice letter was sent to me by Dr. John D. Morris of Institute for
Creation Research, the son of Dr. Henry Morris making the
following comments on this Evangelism material:
congratulate you on a job well done. The materials are excellent
tools for teaching others about the truth of God's Word. I am
especially pleased that you included creation evangelism in your
work." Dr. John D. Morris, President of ICR August
I have since then updated the Basic (87', 94',
97', 99', 2003) and Advanced (87', 97', 99) Textbooks and made them an
even better program than they were before. What I want to talk
about in this Chapter is what the necessary ingredients of a
Training Program in Evangelism are and how these Basic and
Advanced Training Programs of Evangelism completely fulfills all
of these requirements.
What are the INGREDIENTS
of an Evangelism Training Program that will adequately equip
Laymen to do the work of Evangelism? They are:
- The teaching of Biblical Doctrine in the
areas of Evangelism, Salvation, Discipleship and
- In Class Training.
- On the Field Training.
- And Advanced Training in the areas of
Counseling and Apologetics.
