The Purpose of This Textbook:  This full size, 8-1/2 X 11, 500 page Textbook brings together and interrelates Conservative, Evangelical and Charismatic teachings on Evangelism and teaches a Christian how to effectively and successfully share and reach his and her community with the saving message of Jesus Christ.  The Textbook focuses on and trains a Christian in four primary areas:  Evangelism, Discipleship, Apologetics and Spiritual Warfare.

I (Dale P. Kruse) took advantage of all my learning, training and field experience, since 1969, and combined them into two Textbooks: this one titled Evangelism: The Time is Now! (Basic Training) and Relationship With Jesus The Key To Effective Ministry (Advanced Training). One of the unique qualities of these two textbooks is that they draw upon all Biblical streams of Christianity and interrelate the Conservative, Evangelical, Charismatic concepts of Evangelism without compromise.

I mean EVANGELICAL in the sense that Jesus' will for the Church is to seek and to save the lost, and to seek and to save the lost by drawing men to Himself. I mean CHARISMATIC in the sense that in order for our Evangelism to be effective and ministered in love that it must be Jesus centered and be motivated out of love relationship with Jesus. I mean CONSERVATIVE in that our Evangelism, Evangelistically Charismatically oriented, must be motivated within the guidelines of Scripture and be brought into submission to the Bible in its total context to be certain that our Evangelism and ministering is truly Jesus centered and truly motivated out of love relationship with Jesus.

These two Textbooks combine these three streams of Biblical Christianity and their teaching on Evangelism into one program. It is a more holistic approach to Evangelism, but you do not have to be a college graduate to go through it and understand it's content. When I wrote them I strove to keep them simple enough for anyone to understand but complete enough that any Bible scholar could appreciate it and their comments after critiquing the material confirms it. When I finished the 1983 version of this textbook three different College Professors with doctorate degrees, all Evangelists, all published authors in Evangelism of three different Christian faiths critiqued the material. One said to me, "I have never read anything equal to this anywhere. Your depth and completeness are astounding." The program was recommended to both graduate and undergraduate ministry majors. A very nice letter was sent to me by Dr. John D. Morris of Institute for Creation Research, the son of Dr. Henry Morris making the following comments on this Evangelism material:

"Let me congratulate you on a job well done. The materials are excellent tools for teaching others about the truth of God's Word. I am especially pleased that you included creation evangelism in your work." ó Dr. John D. Morris, President of ICR August 11, 1998

I have since updated the Basic (87', 94', 97', 99', 2003, 2012) and Advanced (87', 97', 99) Textbooks and made them an even better Evangelism Training Program than they were before. What are the necessary ingredients of an Evangelism Training Program in order for it to be successful and how does the Basic and Advanced Evangelism Training Programs more than meet these requirements?  What are the INGREDIENTS of an Evangelism Training Program that will adequately equip Laymen to do the work of Evangelism? They are:

bullet

The teaching of Biblical Doctrine in the areas of Evangelism, Salvation, Discipleship, Apologetics and Spiritual Warfare.

bullet

In Class Training.

bullet

On the Field Training.

bullet

And Advanced Training in the areas of Discernment,
Counseling, Apologetics and Spiritual Warfare.

This Basic Textbook more than satisfies these four teaching requirements of a Basic Training Program. This material has been developed out of weekly Evangelism, Discipleship and Apologetic work on the field and in the classroom since 1969.

bullet

Principles of Discipleship are very important in an Evangelism Training Program because most Christianís problems that are binding them up can be traced to a lack of knowledge or practice of one or more basic Biblical discipleship concepts. The training in this Basic Textbook of Evangelism will give the trainee the ability to communicate these principles simply and clearly to the person being counseled on the field.

To lead a person to Jesus Christ requires:

bullet

First, Explaining to a person what it means to be a Christian and how to become one which is EVANGELISM and SALVATION.

bullet

Second, teaching a New Christian how to discern what is truly Jesusí voice to him in the different areas of his life and then encouraging him or her to obey what Jesus tells them to do which is DISCIPLESHIP and SPIRITUAL WARFARE.

bullet

And third, giving honest answers to honest questions about the validity of the Christian faith which is APOLOGETICS.

This Basic textbook on Evangelism, Salvation, Discipleship, Spiritual Warfare and Apologetics gives the Christian more than an adequate foundation in these five areas for successful Evangelism and any Ministry work. For More Information. . .
