What If I’m Discouraged in My Evangelism? (Church Questions)

Posted On February 26, 2020

Evangelism is an essential part of the Christian life. It is through evangelism that the gospel has made its way around the globe and down through the ages. Yet, many Christians find it difficult to evangelize. There are many reasons for this; however, evangelism must remain a central pillar of the Church to ensure its continual propagation to our posterity. How can a disciple of Jesus be encouraged and grow in personal evangelism? This is what Isaac Adams discusses in his new book in the 9Marks Church Questions series, What If I’m Discouraged in My Evangelism (Crossway, 2020).

In the book, Adams discusses the importance of personal evangelism for every follower of Christ. Writing from a pastoral heart, he shares nine truths that will be an encouragement in evangelism. These truths are highly practical and point the reader to the gospel, which is the only source of hope and power for the Christian life. Personal evangelism is the Lord’s chosen means for gospel proclamation. Although He uses humans as instruments of His grace, the act of salvation is through His work alone. This is an excellent reminder to all believers as they engage in personal evangelism. Christians are not called to “close the deal” in evangelism but are called to be faithful to share the gospel.

What If I’m Discouraged in My Evangelism is not a “how-to” book or guide for a church’s evangelism program. It is a highly practical exhortation to trust the Lord and be obedient to the command to share the gospel. The Church does not need another manual on how to do evangelism. In modern Western culture, people do not respond well to slick tactics. What people need is biblical truth. Sharing biblical truth in love requires building rapport over time, which will make the gospel more real to non-believers. Adams does an excellent job of pointing the reader to this reality, all the while encouraging them to seek the Lord and His strength to guide them in personal evangelism.

I would highly recommend What If I’m Discouraged in My Evangelism to church leaders who are looking for a resource to encourage their congregation in personal evangelism. It is an excellent resource for small group study. Evangelism is best learned and encouraged in the Christian community. Adams does an excellent job of pointing the reader to the gospel as the source of hope and power for personal evangelism. It is a challenging yet encouraging read.
