Books on Evangelism

This coming semester I will be taking a course on Evangelism and Church Planting. As this is largely a new area for me, I am wondering which books people have found most helpful, most inspiring, and most biblically informative and sound.

Of course a book need not meet all these criteria to be of value, but if anyone knows of any that do I would love to know!

In just under 3 months. That could be so rich with significance. Nevetheless, no any good books on evangelism?

Power Evangelism by John Wimber

The book by John Dickson is pretty good, so good in fact, I've forgotton the title.

You must source Mark Keown's thesis on Paul's Mandate for Evangelism. Go to BCNZ and FIND IT! You MUST HAVE IT!

I reckon it could replace Michael Green's "Evangelism in the Early Church." Building Bridges by McGrath is more about apologetics, but still good.

Otherwise, I have found some insights in Ajith Fernando's NIV Application Commentary on The Acts of the Apostles.

Have fun, God's grace is for you!

Nah, I just used it at the LIBRARY! But I did manage to get Contours of Christology, and BEALE on Revelation!

I loved Packer's 'Evangelism and the Sovereignty of God' and esp. Will Metzger's 'Tell the Truth.' Good stuff!
