The Gospel and Personal Evangelism by Mark Dever (Wheaton: Crossway, 2007), 124 pp., paper $10.00
Dever has written a nicely balanced, easy-to-read, down-to-earth little manual on evangelism that should be of help and encouragement to all who read it. He deals honestly with some of our struggles regarding evangelism and offers tips on improving our evangelistic efforts. The author explains what the gospel is and is not, and the reader will recognize a Reformed soteriology which underlines Dever’s understanding both theologically and practically.
Dever’s passion for evangelism is evident and contagious. His readers might just catch some of his fervor.
