Here are a few really good resources on evangelism that range from the theory/theology of evangelism all the way toward practical evangelism. One random thought…If you are considering teaching a class on evangelism, it is important to determine your purpose…There is a big difference in teaching a class about evangelism and actually having people evangelize.
Here is the list in order from the more theory oriented books to the more practical ones:
Revival & Revivalism by Iain Murray – theory
Master Plan of Evangelism by Coleman – Theory…Modeling our ministry after Jesus’ discipleship process.
Tell the truth by Will Metzger – balance of theory/practice
The Gospel & Personal Evangelism by Mark Dever – balance of theory/practice
Evangelism: How to Share the Gospel Faithfully by John MacArthur – balance of theory/practice (very thorough, as always)
Evangelism Handbook by Alvin Reid – missional paradigm shifting book that front loads the theory and moves you toward practice.
Speaking of Jesus by Mack Stiles – practical
Heaven’s Star by Jim Woodell – very practical with good stories mixed throughout.
Becoming a Contagious Christian by Bill Hybels – a little dated now but extremely practical. There is a whole study/DVD kit you can get for this one.
Terry Rush also has a DVD called 100% Natural Evangelism but you can’t order that online that I know of. If anyone is interested in that let me know or contact Terry. I posted up a study guide to that material here.
I also have to mention Jesus 101. I am sure you guys already know about it because I have mentioned it frequently, but it is an evangelistic study through the Gospel of Mark.
