The Gospel is a glorious message; the very idea that God should send His only Son to die for us in order to release us from our sin is truly amazing. Christians must grasp every opportunity to share the message that Christ is the only way. But are there opportunities apart from the usual church based ones, and how can we best use our time to reach the lost? Today there are a growing number of people who are reluctant, initially at least, to attend a church-based event. They need a bridge. Derek Cleave suggests that one useful bridge is evangelism through the home. The concept is very simple and, the author believes, biblical: that church members should open not only their hearts but also their hornes to unsaved neighbors, friends and work colleagues. Drawing on his thirty years experience as an itinerant preacher and evangelist, Derek Cleave guides the reader through the stages of planning home evangelistic events, and deals with many of the pitfalls and questions that are often asked about this vital form of outreach. Making time in our lives for non-Christian neighbors and contacts demands effort and imagination. For Christians, there is no better way to use our energy, resources and our homes than setting them aside for God’s purposes. There really is no greater act of friendship than to introduce someone to the saving Gospel of Christ!
