You Can Share The Good News

Even though pastor and author Greg Laurie is a “gospel-presenting professional,” in this book he tells stories of his own failure and success. The most important things you will find here are biblical principles that you can apply yourself. Taken from the life and witness of Jesus, and tested over Greg’s forty years of ministry, in both one-on-one experiences and large-scale evangelistic arena and stadium events, these ideas are intended to mobilize every person in the church to “Tell Someone” about Jesus Christ.

Review: (Rev. Bob Ripley)
In the foreword of this book Mr. Laurie says “This book is not written to make you feel bad or condemn you if you have not engaged others with the gospel message. This book is written to encourage and inspire you.” How true that really is. In a scant 131 pages, Greg Laurie gives the do’s and don’ts of effective witnessing. He focuses on the message and how our personal story can be one of our most powerful tools in sharing the gospel. This a book for those who have never shared with others or a good refresher for those who have been sharing their story for years. Don’t miss your opportunity to tell someone.
