The Evangelism Study Bible

Evangelism can mean many things to many people. For some, it's something that requires special training or a calling from God. For others, it's something only done in a church building or arena. And for some, it evokes emotions of guilt and shame for failing to be a vibrant witness to unbelievers.
For more than forty years, EvanTell, Inc., an evangelism training and outreach ministry in Dallas, Texas, has focused on one mission: the gospel, clear and simple. Founded by Dr. R. Larry Moyer, EvanTell, Inc., touches millions of lives each year with evangelism materials, evangelism training, and outreach events. Now those four decades of experience in training believers to share the good news in a clear and simple fashion has been paired with the one essential tool for evangelism: God's Word. The Evangelism Study Bible provides all the tools needed for sharing the gospel in a clear, simple, and guilt-free way.
Using the highly regarded New King James Version®, The Evangelism Study Bible brings together a wide variety of resources, some never before paired with the text of Scripture. Users will benefit from:
• a brief, informative introduction to each Bible book, focusing on its contribution to evangelism
• more than 2,600 study notes pertaining to evangelism
• over 260 tips on practical issues in evangelism
• 125 in-depth articles on crucial issues
• 85 how-to features that provide hands-on advice
• 45 inspirational devotions
• easy-to-follow double-column format with explanatory notes
• helpful cross references
• biblical concordance
• full-color maps
The Evangelism Study Bible not only provides the training to explain and make clear the good news of the gospel, it also will motivate readers to evangelize out of grace rather than guilt.

First, I would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank you” to Kregel Publications for sending me a copy of "The Evangelism Study Bible" to review for them. I am truly grateful for this generosity. I really appreciate the time, effort and expense it takes to make a reviewer copy available to me.

The Evangelism Study Bible is a MUST-HAVE Bible study resource.  As Christians, we are ALL sent forth by Christ to bring the good news to the nations.  We may not all be called to foreign missions, but what about the mission field in our homes, workplaces, service businesses, and other places we frequent?  Are you prepared to share the hope you have with others?

Many of us do not have the confidence to share Christ with others.  We struggle with what to say and what not to say.  We have trouble knowing when to share the Gospel and how to steer a conversation in that direction.  The Evangelism Study Bible is a great resource that will build confidence in the student to share their faith through more than 250 informative articles that are paired with passages of Scripture from almost every book of the Bible.

These articles cover topics from how to share with relatives to how to answer someone who wants God to prove He exists.  There are tools to discover what’s holding you back from evangelizing and to sharpen your skills to share your faith.

The text of Scripture is presented in the New King James Version (NKJV) and it’s loaded with full-color maps to follow along with your favorite passages.  This is a study Bible, so it has a good set of cross references to related Scripture passages.  There are also study notes and helpful tips for evangelism throughout the book.  Additional resources included are a glossary of evangelism terms, a concordance and a presentation of the Gospel to learn and use in your witnessing.
