"Few books have had as great an impact on the cause of world evangelization in our generation as Robert Coleman's "The Master Plan of Evangelism.""--Billy Graham It all started when Jesus called a few men to follow him and share God's message with their neighbors. We are called to do the same. But evangelism can be difficult--even intimidating. With all the evangelism resources available, where should you turn to find advice on how to share the Good News with others? Robert E. Coleman says the answers aren't found in TV evangelism, easy-evangelism guidebooks, or the latest marketing techniques. Rather, he looks to the Bible, to the ultimate example found in Jesus Christ. For more than forty years this classic, biblical look at evangelism has challenged and instructed over three million readers. Now repackaged for a new generation, "The Master Plan of Evangelism" is as fresh and relevant as ever. Join the movement and discover how you can minister to the people God brings into your life.
For more than forty years, Robert E. Coleman's bestselling The Master Plan of Evangelism has been the standard in evangelism literature. But what is the theology behind evangelism? And why is it important for Christians to understand? The Heart of the Gospel offers a systematic theology of evangelism that will ground and inform our practice of spreading the Good News. Each chapter covers a major biblical doctrine, explains its various evangelical interpretations, treats misconceptions that adversely affect evangelism, and offers practical applications of the doctrine. Based on decades of classroom teaching, this comprehensive work is aimed at ministry readers interested in evangelism and outreach.
From the author of the bestselling book, "The Master Plan of Evangelism", comes this study manual on the personal evangelism style of the Son of God. An interactive guide, this work includes insights, 12 examples drawn from the life of Jesus, suggestions for small group meetings, an action plan, personal questions and observations from each chapter.
“To the Degree That We Share the Mind of Christ and Feel His Passion for the Kingdom...His Ministry Comes Alive.” IN THIS CLASSIC BOOK Robert Coleman examines the aspects of Jesus’ interior life that gave direction and strength to Christ’s redeeming work among us. Focusing not on methods but on six themes central in Jesus’ thoughts, Coleman leads us to a deeper understanding of what it means to have the mind of the Master. A helpful study guide for group or individual use is included. “This book takes you into the deeper thoughts of Jesus Christ.” —Billy Graham “For those who wish to understand more fully the secret of Christ’s source of power, this book is a must!” — D. James Kennedy “Dr. Coleman’s study is careful, clear, and challenging.” — John R.W. Stott “This book deserves the careful reading of every faithful servent of our Lord.” —Bill Bright

Five Steps That Help Your Church to Make Disciples Who Make Disciples
Author: Jim Putman,Bobby William Harrington,Robert Coleman
Over the last thirty years, many influential church leaders and church planters in America have adopted various models for reaching unchurched people. An “attractional” model will seek to attract people to a local church. Younger leaders may advocate a more “missional” approach, in which believers live and work among unchurched people and intentionally seek to serve like Christ. While each of these approaches have merit, something is still missing, something even more fundamental to the mission of the church: discipleship. Making disciples—helping people to trust and follow Jesus—is the church’s God-given mandate. Devoted disciples attract people outside the church because of the change others see in their Christ-like lives. And discipleship empowers Christians to be more like Christ as they intentionally develop relationship with non-believers. DiscipleShift walks you through five key “shifts” that churches must make to refocus on the biblical mission of discipleship. These intentional changes will attract the world and empower your church members to be salt and light in their communities.
It is absolutely essential that a church perceive itself as an institution for the glory of God, and to do that, claims John MacArthur, the local church must adhere unfalteringly to biblical leadership principles. Christ never intended church leadership to be earned by seniority, purchased with money, or inherited through family ties. He never compared church leaders to governing monarchs, but rather to humble shepherds; not to slick celebrities, but to laboring servants. Drawing from some of the best-received material on church leadership, this updated edition guides the church with crucial, effective lessons in leadership. This book is valuable not only for pastors and elders, but for anyone else who wants the church to be what God intended it to be.
