In a world filled with diverse religious beliefs and practices, the importance of effective evangelism cannot be overemphasized. George Aigbogun, a notable evangelist with over fifty years of experience in personal and church evangelism, presents his new book titled "Principles and Practice of Evangelism." The book delves into the fundamental principles, engagement practices, and the primary purpose of successful soul-winning endeavors.
The inspiration for this book came to Aigbogun in a vision where he heard the clear voice of God saying, "Principles and Practice of Evangelism." Motivated by a deep desire to address the flaws and defaults in contemporary evangelism practices, Aigbogun combines biblical teachings with his extensive practical experience to provide readers with a comprehensive guide to fruitful evangelism.
A key focus of the book is the urgent need for believers to prioritize evangelism as a core aspect of their faith. Aigbogun highlights that a majority of believers have never led a soul to Christ, and many are ineffective in soul-winning endeavors. Through insightful analysis, he identifies the reasons behind believers' reluctance to evangelize, including fear of rejection, lack of knowledge, and persecution.
Furthermore, "Principles and Practice of Evangelism" emphasizes the need for evangelists to stay true to the message of salvation through Jesus Christ. Aigbogun critiques the prevalence of evangelists who prioritize promoting their denominations, churches, and leaders rather than sharing the gospel in its pure form. He asserts that true evangelism should focus on saving lost souls and leading them to Jesus Christ, the only Savior of humanity.
The book provides practical guidance on key elements of evangelism, such as emphasizing the universal need for a Savior, repentance, and faith in Jesus Christ. Aigbogun stresses the importance of evangelism in fulfilling Jesus' command to go into the world and preach the gospel to every creature. He highlights that obedience to this divine mandate is crucial not only for individual salvation but also for church growth and the building of God's Kingdom.
With the world approaching the end times, Aigbogun emphasizes the urgency of evangelism. He asserts that fulfilling the Great Commission of preaching the gospel to the whole world is essential for the final culmination of this age. By spreading the message of salvation, believers can help save souls from eternal destruction and bring them into fellowship with God.
"Principles and Practice of Evangelism" is a timely publication that provides gospel preachers, teachers, pastors, and all true believers with invaluable insights for effective and fruitful soul-winning endeavors. It combines biblical principles, practical experience, and a heartfelt passion for lost souls to inspire believers worldwide to engage in evangelism and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ.
