4.0 out of 5 stars inspired and challenged, 26 July 2014

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Gospel and Personal Evangelism (Foreword by C. J. Mahaney) (9marks) (Kindle Edition)
I found this book to be a really helpful in making clear the simplicity of the gospel and how and why we should be sharing it in our every day lives rather than leaving it to the "professionals". A couple of quotes I found particularly good were:

"The good news is not simply that God is love"
Being a christian comes at a cost and Dever emphasises the need for honesty, urgency and joy.

"We are not to put forward on,y positives that we imagine our non christian friends presently value and present God as simply the means by which prey can meet their own ends"
We are challenged here not to dilute the gospel to make it more attractive and people more likely to come it church. Instead Dever in the book points out Romans 10:1 saying;

"We can work and witness for the salvation of someone but only God can finally bring it about. It is his work so we must pray."
Once agin it is encouraging to remember that God is in control and He calls people to Himself. Our job is to declare the good news of the gospel and pray. Lots more packed into this book. Well worth a read.
