The Evangelism Study Bible

R. Larry Moyer Grand Rapids 2014-10-24

For more than forty years, EvanTell, Inc., an evangelism training and outreach ministry in Dallas, Texas, has focused on one mission: the gospel. Founded by Dr. R. Larry Moyer, EvanTell touches millions of lives each year with evangelism materials, evangelism training, and outreach events. Moyer’s cry, “Be Clear! Be Clear! Be Clear!” resounds throughout the Bible. The Evangelism Study Bible provides all the tools needed for sharing the gospel in a clear, simple, and guilt-free manner. 

The text of Scripture is the New King James Version (NKJV) and has full-color maps and numerous topical studies interspersed within each individual book. Additional resources included are cross-references, a glossary of evangelism terms, a concordance and a sample of Bad News, Good News, a presentation of the Gospel for personal witnessing developed by Larry Moyer. 

A sampling of the 125 topical studies include, “The First Sin—It Cause and Effects;” “Is Lack of Forgiveness Holding You Back?;” “The Holiness of God Should Influence Our Evangelism;” “How to Prepare Your Children to Reach Their Generation;” “What Is ‘Fear of God’ and How Does It Influence Evangelism?” “How to Know When to Mention Hell in Personal Evangelism;” and “Sharing Truth with Grace.” Additionally there are over 2,600 study notes relating to evangelism, 260 tips on practical issues in evangelism, 85 how-to features that provide hands-on advice, and 45 inspirational devotions. Each of the 66 books of the Bible has an introduction that emphasizes evangelistic themes in that particular book. 

The Bible is exactly what it claims to be: a tool for making the gospel clear and for motivating the reader to evangelize. It also shows the reader that the gospel can be found in every book of the Bible, not just select New Testament passages. This Bible fills a specific need and is recommended for anyone wanting to share the gospel or to use it as a training aid for evangelism studies in churches, Bible colleges, study groups, and conferences.
