The late legendary pastor Stephen Olford’s mid-twentieth century ministry classic, The Secret of Soul Winning, returns to print in 2007 with extensive updates from his son David Olford, plus a previously unreleased foreword by the late Adrian Rogers in addition to the original introduction from Billy Graham.
Here, the Olfords relate many of their personal experiences with soul winning, a vital practice among Christians, but one that often seems the most difficult to do. This time-tested practical advice on how to share the good news of Jesus Christ, still as relevant as the first day it was written, is sure to greatly inspire a new generation of disciples.
Chapters include: “The Soul-Winner’s Truths,” “Task,” “Training,” “Technique,” Target,” Travail,” Trials,” Temptations,” and Triumphs.”
