Every Member Evangelism for Today


122 Pages


Now a classic work in communication of the gospel to all people has been revised and updated to make it even more vital to contemporary needs. J. E. Conant's Every Member Evangelism remains a stirring call to arms to all Christians, a call back to the divine program given by Jesus to evangelize the world. It is a manual of arms as well, showing why and how every church can fully mobilize every member in the service of Christ and his message. In this revision, Roy J. Fish completely updates the language and substitutes new examples more in line with present-day experience. Conant's vision and fervor are intact. Just as Every Member Evangelism was the standard work for the growing church of an earlier day, this new version comes at a time when the need for it has never been greater.
