What is Evangelism? Evangelism is joyfully intoxicating, the real business of life, pursuing lost people. It is telling good news and helping people exchange their religion for a relationship. Evangelism is following the example of Jesus, washing feet, being yourself. It is sharing your story, working together, and leaving a legacy.
Evangelism Is... contains forty brief chapters of high-octane, rut-breaking equipment, empowerment, and encouragement for all who are ready to share Jesus more passionately and confidently with others. Each call-to-action entry stands alone but can easily be connected to other chapters, all of them finishing the sentence that begins with the book's title. For example, Evangelism Is... "Joyfully Intoxicating," "The Real Business of Life," "The Supreme Challenge of This Generation," "Leading People to True Conversion," "Washing Feet," "Praying Prodigals Home," "Empathy with Action," "Giving a Logical Defense of Your Faith," "A Family Affair," etc.
The book's appendix also includes articles on what evangelism is not, evangelism in the early church, and sharing Jesus, plus sample plans for sharing one's faith.

Evangelism Is... serves a great purposeto remind us of the joy of sharing our faith. But even more, Earley and Wheeler teach us the important lesson of how natural evangelism should be in the life of the believer.
