Description

Most Christians already believe they should be telling others about Jesus, but traditional methods are no longer as effective in today’s post-Christian world. Thus, we may become frustrated, blame ourselves, or simply give up. Evangelism in a Skeptical World Video Study, together with the accompanying book Evangelism in a Skeptical World, equips Christians with the principles and skills needed to tell the unbelievable news about Jesus to friends in a skeptical world.

Presented by speaker and evangelist Sam Chan, these lessons combine the theological and biblical insights of classic evangelistic training with the latest insights from missiology on contextualization, cultural hermeneutics, and storytelling. Every session is illustrated with real-world examples drawn from over fifteen years of evangelistic ministry. These are methods that really work–getting past the defensive posture that many people have toward Christianity so they can seriously consider the claims of Jesus Christ.
