When we hear the word "evangelism," many of us become paralyzed, imagining only the idea of walking up to a stranger and inquiring about their eternal destiny. Thankfully, evangelism (literally "announcing the good news") is much more than that. As believers, we are given the great joy of telling others about a Kingdom that both conquers and transforms this world and a King whose reign is one of justice and grace. Sharing our lives and sharing the gospel are both part of evangelism, as we testify to the world of God's work in and through us. 

Below are a few books to guide you in the lifelong joy of sharing the gospel and making disciples.
