This comprehensive training manual is jam-packed with techniques and strategies on the art and practice of personal evangelism. It is a unique and vital contribution to the evangelism literature and supplements the “life style” approach that has been so popular.    
Even though most Christians sincerely desire to share their faith, many feel ill-equipped for this complex and often daunting task, because they don’t have a model to guide them through the process. Strategic Evangelism will equip you with a host of skills to help you become more confident and effective in your personal ministry. One of the most distinctive features of this text is the dozens of examples on how to skillfully apply strategic techniques through hypothetical dialogues between a personal evangelist and non-Christian. 
Strategic Evangelism addresses how to share your faith across a wide range of situations. It also takes into consideration the individual characteristics and spiritual condition of your nonbelieving friend. The topics include…
• a theory of evangelism and attitudinal change
• assessing knowledge and motivation
• how to start a spiritual conversation
• effective communication and persuasion skills
• dealing with spiritual resistance and objections
• motivational tools and techniques   
• methods of sharing the gospel and your testimony
• invitational strategies and facilitating a commitment
• conducting brief and one-shot evangelism
