Why, when some of us hear the word "evangelism," do we turn away thinking we don't have the talent or time it takes to connect heart to heart with others for God's kingdom? We need a new way of thinking about evangelism, says Gary Cymbaluk, writer for Faith Today. He interviewed experts who can help us come to terms with this term.
Evangelism wasn't on his mind when country music superstar Paul Brandt was handed a recording contract most musicians only dream of. But God awakened him to evangelism through a dream and gave him a choice. Paul Brandt's stellar career developed as a result of obedience. But what happens when one hears the call and doesn't obey? Captain Orest Goyak can testify to that. It took a death-defying experience to jolt him into the reality of commitment to Christ.
Evangelism takes on another dimension in the east Timor region of Australia. The goal of a Wycliffe Bible translation project is to reach the people of 22 different language groups with Bibles in their own languages. To see worn-out copies of God's Word among the people is their ambition.
