Many churches and Christians have fallen for the lie that evangelism, or at least some methods of evangelism, do not work today; debate about this goes on among Christians. All this happens in the church, while lost people—people without Jesus—are dying and heading for an eternal hell. Jesus calls every Christian to be His witness. The Great Commission is God’s mandate for making lasting disciples by taking the gospel to all peoples. Even so, the church lives as though God’s command for evangelism is an option. In Breaking the Evangelism Code, author Victor Benavides helps Christians, including ministers and students preparing for the ministry, understand evangelism as it exists today. Benavides presents methods and approaches that have proved to be effective in sharing God’s Word. Missionaries have used these methods all over the world, resulting in hundreds coming to faith in Jesus. Evangelism is about obedience, which is about being holy. When people are obedient to God, they become more holy; when they are disobedient by saying no to evangelism, people are living an unholy life. Breaking the Evangelism Code will help those concerned share the Word and lead people back to God.
